DM Toys has a sale on Minitrix DB Talgo 4&3 car sets

Just a typing miss. Is 6+4. Nevertheless 9 cars is not to long. My son has got 12 cars. You can watch this DB Talgo running on his layout (four years ago, when he was starting to build it up) in the attached video. (From minute 1,01)

The original Talgo was 'standard gauge' (ie 1435mm) and ran in Spain on the standard gauge Langreo Railway until the 1980s.

True, after RENFE dismiss it when Talgo III arrival, it was sold to the Langeo Railway, in Asturias. It was necessary to change the gauge, as the Langreo Railway was 1 meter gauge.

Today it is preserved with its original gauge of 1435 mm. in Madrid's Railway Museum, located in the old Delicias Station.

For those that have found this in my Youtube channel.

TalgoIII as it ran daily by the Mediterranean line hauled by an electric 250 series locomotive. Note that between the lok and the TalgoIII there's a Manso, necessary generator van to power the train.

Hi

Thanks for the Talgo history! I remember first seeing a Talgo train parked in Zurich main station in about 1994 when I was very young and I was fascinated by how different it looked, I had never been aware of them previously.
