    Converted to Oil
    There were oil-fired steam locomotives even in Switzerland. At the end of 1953, the "Oilephant" – the converted class C 5/6 "Elephant", road number 2976, first began running. With oil firing based on the Sprenger system, this unit quickly showed its advantages compared to coal-fired locomotives. Demonstrably lower fuel consumption as well as simpler operation and trouble-free adaptation to different load relationships had the experts' attention. The foreseeable discontinuation of steam locomotives on the SBB then resulted unfortunately in no more conversions.

    Prototype: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) class C 5/6 "Elephant" steam freight locomotive, with a 3-axle tender and conversion to oil firing. Locomotive road number 2976. The locomotive looks as it did in the Fifties.

    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. 5 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed chiefly of metal. The locomotive has a factory-installed 72270 smoke unit. The triple headlights on the locomotive and 2 lights on the tender change over with the direction of travel. They and the built-in smoke unit will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The cab lighting can also be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There is an adjustable coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. The front of the locomotive has an NEM pocket and a close coupler. The rear of the tender has an NEM pocket, a close coupler, and a guide mechanism. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Piston rod protection sleeves and imitation prototype couplers are included. Length over the buffers 22.3 cm / 8-3/4".

    This item is being produced as a one-time series
