The Salty railway of Volterra - Volterra and Paola - Cosenza saw her protagonist with the Gr. 980.
This particular steam locomotives was used on track with denture and inclinations up to 100mm/m.

The models of these particular rack - railway locotender locomotives and overheated steam, realized in limited edition in the exact 1: 87 "H0" scale, are entirely built in brass and steel as the whole models of production Top-Train.
The steam locomotive is a "modelistic jewel" designed and built by Top-Train in limited edition.

Top-Train has reproduced all the details of these italian steam locomotive with mixed adherence: the connecting rods, the Walschaerts distributions, the cogwheels.

Top-Train has reproduced all the details of these Italian steam locomotives with mixed adherence: the connecting rods, the Walschaerts distributions, the cogwheels. With the model is furnished a special cog railway track ( length 90 cm) in perfect scale 1:87 to assembly on the standard rack rail (suggested Peco code 100). As the real one when the gear wheel goes on the cog railway, the second connecting rod starts to working. When the model with gear well comes out of the cog rail way, the second connecting rods stop to run, like original one.
