    Product Features and Details
    HO Scale AC Era III 

    Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 78 (former Prussian class T18) steam tank locomotive. Version with three boiler domes (D-D-S), and a rectangular sand dome. Riveted water tanks, cab roof with a rectangular top part, triple headlights with DB Reflex glass lamps. Road number 78 516. Based in Essen. The locomotive looks as it did around 1965.

    In Shuttle Service in the Sixties
    Designed originally in 1911 for faster handling of passenger train service on the Isle of Rügen, the T 18 (later the class 78) resulted in one of the most successful German tank locomotives with its symmetrical design with three coupled wheel sets, two trucks, large fuel and water tanks, and a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 62.5 mph in both directions of travel. Executed as an impressive, highly detailed model of probably the most successful locomotive classes that ever ran on Germany's rails.

    Model: The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder. It has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive is constructed mostly of metal. A 72270 smoke generator can be installed in the locomotive. The triple headlights change over with the direction of travel. They and the smoke generator contact will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. Dual red marker lights can be controlled separately in digital operation. The cab lighting can also be controlled in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. The locomotive has numerous separately applied grab irons and piping. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Protective piston rod sleeves and brake hoses are included.
    Length over the buffers approximately 17 cm / 6-11/16".

    Highlights:

    • Completely new tooling.
    • Especially intricate metal construction.
    • Many separately applied details.
    • Cab lighting can be controlled digitally.
    • Marker lights can be controlled separately in digital operation
