Prototype: German State Railroad (DR) express steam locomotive, road number 06 001. At its time the most powerful, largest, and heaviest unit on the German State Railroad. Complete streamlining included, inductive magnet on the right side of the locomotive on the trailing truck, and a cover for the coalbunker included. Deep black basic paint scheme with decorative striping. The locomotive looks as it did at the end of the Thirties.
- Completely new tooling.
- Model constructed mostly of metal.
- A variety of separately applied details.
- Factory-installed smoke unit with dynamic smoke exhaust, which varies with the speed.
- Cab lighting can be controlled digitally.
- Firebox flickering can be controlled digitally.
- The cover on the coalbunker can be opened.
- mfx+ World of Operation decoder with extensive operation and sound functions.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled, high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. Four axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. The locomotive has a factory-installed smoke unit with dynamic smoke exhaust, which varies with the speed. Dual headlights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. Cab lighting and firebox flickering can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. There is a close coupler with a guide mechanism in an NEM pocket on the back of the tender. The cover on the coalbunker can be opened. Real scale-sized coal is used for the bunker.
The locomotive can be run without limitation on the 437.5 mm / 17-1/4" radius (Radius 2) if attention is paid to the clearance gauge. The locomotive can also be run on the 360 mm / 14-3/16" radius (Radius 1) if the clearance gauge is ignored. Cutouts in the side streamlining for sharper curves can be closed with fill-in pieces included for the purpose. A figure of an engineer, two firemen, brake hoses, and imitation prototype couplers are also included.
