Product Features and Details
Prototype: When it comes to modeling European trains one of the more popular time periods to model is Era I. Era I is desirable because it deals with many of the private state railways from the years 1835 to 1925. The Bavarian State Railways is among the most exciting railways to model in this time period because they incorporated many unique and impressive steam locomotives which were painted in exquisite liveries. The ML2/2 was built in 1908 by J. A. München and it was designed to be used on small local branch-lines hauling both local passenger service and light branch-line freight.
Model: The ML2/2 might just be the most attractive little tank loco ever made! It is highly detailed, colorful, and the number of separately applied parts are truly amazing. One unique feature is the center mounted cylinders. The drive rods on the front and back axle move into the center piston, creating a most interesting movement. Model is equipped with a brush-less can motor with flywheel, full cab interior, spring loaded buffers and extensive outer detail which includes Bavarian flags, garland and wreths. Locomotive was decorate for the openning of the Kulmbach/Thurnau line in October 1908.
