Product Features and Details
Prototype: In the postwar years, the first newly constructed locomotive series on the still young DB (German Federal Railways) was the class 82. This was intended as a heavy shunting and transfer locomotive for freight work. Locomotives 82 023 to 82 037 were delivered complete with a Knorr feedwater heater. The last four machines from the Esslingen contractors were built with different driver's cabs, in which the doors closed flush with the cab. Locomtives 041 & 042 were also equipped with a backpressure brake system for use over steep terrain. Although the locomotives fullfilled the requirements placed on them, the delivery of the heavy diesel switchers of the V90 series and the regular V100 diesel engines put an end to the service lives of the 82 series as early as 1972. On August 24, 1972, the last locomotive of this series, the 082 035-7, was withdrawn from service.
Model: The Piko 50047 DB class 82 steam locomotive is the only commercially produced model of the DB class 82 in HO scale. This smooth running model is powered by a 5 pole motor with flywheel and features extensive boiler detailing, directional lighting, two traction tires, and a receptacle for an 8 pin NEM 652 decoder. It is the perfect steam locomotive model for yard switching or pusher service on your era III DB layout.
