News 2021.02 - New Edition C1 / c1
A little history lesson!
Even with the new edition of the approx. 30 year old models of the C1 multiple units and c1 sidecars, care was taken to be technically up to date. The motorized models of the C1 new edition are factory-fitted with a NEM651 interface.
In the 1950s, Wiener Linien decided to replace the unpopular C-c trams and ordered 58 sets of a DÜWAG design from SGP in Vienna. Thanks to the compressor, air brake, shunting cockpit in both parts of the tram and a pneumatic anti-skid device, the equipment was technically state-of-the-art.
The models of the 125 railcar displays the time of the directed passenger flow. Those who wanted a ride had to pass the driver who checked the season tickets or sold tickets. The old curved logo of Wiener Stadtwerke (later Wiener Linien) was in use until 1983, long after its validity.

From 1972 the sidecar was operated without a conductor, which was advertised from afar with the help of illuminated banners in the windows. Tickets could still be purchased from the driver, the then still uniformed “Schwarzkappler” (conductor) snatched the fare dodgers in the sidecar after issuing the blood curdling call “Faaahrscheine bitte!”.
Even with the new edition of the approx. 30 year old models of the C1 multiple units and c1 sidecars, care was taken to be technically up to date. The motorized models of the C1 new edition are factory-fitted with a NEM651 interface. Upon request when ordering, the models can also be digitized at the factory (WC1-DIGI).
For the models of the new edition, an accessory kit is available under item number ZRS0WC1-LICHT for converting the model to alternating light. Older models can be retrofitted with an interface and alternating light using the ZRS0WC1-NEM article.
Thanks to a small set of decals, you can decide in which operating condition the vehicles should be reproduced. The high-quality decals also enable operation on different lines.
