Prototype information


The Rhaetian Railway is one of the largest private railways in Switzerland, has a route network of about 400 km, connects world tourist destinations such as St. Moritz and Davos with the "Glacier Express", and has been a sister of the Hakone Tozan Railway in Japan for 35 years.

The ABe 8/12 'Allegra' is a three-car multiple unit used on the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). They are dual voltage, which allows them to run on both the core network (11 kV 16.7 Hz) and on the Bernina Railway (1000V DC). The "Allegra" is a vehicle with a unique low-floor body structure that boasts the same output as a locomotive even though it is a train, and is also active in towing passenger cars. Has a braking device. It is a high-performance vehicle that can be transformed from 100 km / h on the main line to the road surface, and is active on each line of the Rhaetian Railway.

3 reviews for 10-1273 RhB ABe 8/12 Allegra 3 Car EMU

  1. STEPHEN LEWIS (verified owner)

    The 3 car Allegra is a brilliant model, Some users have said that its detailing surpasses that of similar Allegras available in other scales (I cannot confirm this personally!) The units run very smoothly and are capable of hauling additional coaches or freight cars as the full size Allegras do ( check out RhB Livestream webcams) Kato close couplers are provided in the pack and these are easily changed with the dummy couplings fitted,
    Directional lights are fitted, as per some Swiss rules 2 on front (leading car) and 1 on the trailing car (although not sure if this rule still apllies currently)

    I have eagerly awaited the latest production run of this model and it does not disappoint. A beautifully detailed model which comes with the usual smooth running of Kato products, and at an extremely competitive pricing. It was also another perfect transaction with the highly recommended Train Trax, and the 'Pre-Order' facility that is available is a first rate option.

  3. Andrew Read

    Very nice model with a lot of detail, and promptly supplied by Train Trax. My one disappointment is that I will have to almost totally dismantle the motor unit to modify it if I want it to run on my DCC setup.
