50 years Marklin train set 0050 from 1985.
Elsewhere was claimed to be careful with motor and rectifier.
Disagreement whether the motor is DC or AC, although it is obviously meant to run on AC transformer.

If DC motors are inside both locomotives, then there should be a rectifier,too.

What is your experience with the set ? Any issues and failures ? What to pay attention to ?

Thank you.

This set has been discussed before, but not for a few years, take a read of this discussion....

The motor itself is DC, but run from a PCB which if I recall was not any form of 'Decoder', (although it probably should have been) so yes there is rectification of the AC and reverse.
