    Prototype: The Class 85 of the German Federal Railways was a three-cylinder 2-10-2 tank locomotive built for both passenger and freight service in the Black Forest region of Germany. Ten of these locomotives were built by Henschel from 1932-1933. Specifically, the 85 saw service on the Hoellental line as a helper/pusher locomotive, and allowed the Hoellental line to do away with rack operations in 1933. The 85 developed 1500 HP and had a maximum speed of 49 MPH (80 KPH). Nine of the ten 85s survived the Second World War and continued to serve the DB until 1961 when the last one was retired. Today 85 007 survives in non operating state in the old locomotive facility of Freiburg im Breisgau.

    Model: Like all Roco steam locomotives the BR85 has extensive cosmetic details which includes a high quality paint finish, crisp lettering, inset windows, brake shoes between wheels and interior details in the driver’s cab. Mechanically: Roco HO Gauge locomotives are some of the best models on the market. This model has a fully functional, finely detailed Heusinger valve gear and prototypical “daylight” between the boiler and chassis. Motor: Roco locomotives are equipped with a powerful 5 pole motor with flywheels and high quality gears which gives the model smooth running characteristics and excellent performance, model has five powered axles. DCC and Lights: Model is equipped with a PluX22 dcc factory installed sound decoder and dynamic cyclinder smoke. Model has prototypical triple LED lights which coordinated with direction of travel. Couplers: Model comes with NEM 362 close coupler pockets.   Construction: Model has a cast metal chassis and plastic shell.  The BR85 will surely be Roco's flagship steam locomotive, it would be a perfect model for any German themed layout and collection.
