In 1889 a rail line was built to the spa of Langenschwalbach. The line had to climb the main ridge of the Taunus mountain and passes through a gap in the main range known as the Eiserne Hand. Some sections or the rail line had a grade of 1 in 30 and curves with a minimum radius of 200 meters. The Prussian State Railroad had a new type of passenger car built especially for the many curves on this track. Although commuter cars at that time had two or three rigid axles, the Langenschwalbach cars were equipped with 2-axle bogies. This design became known as the Langenschwalbacher car.
The set contains the C4i Pr15 passenger car. All graphic elements are printed on the LEGO® parts. The model is built on a 1:45 scale and need a larger radius of curve (R104) for a smooth ride. Check out the tracks form BrickTracks on our website.
