Product Features and Details
Diesel locomotive BR V 160 of the DB, epoch III, with sound New for 2021: original red version of the BR 216 as Ep. III model V 160 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn.
In the 1960s and 1970s, the class V 160 or 216 was the express locomotive for lines without catenary wire. The new design of this important vehicle type not only closes a gap in the PIKO range, but will also enrich many model railway layouts of epochs III to V with numerous variants. The development team has implemented the striking design of the prototype in outstanding quality in the model and at the same time achieved ideal driving characteristics. These attributes are underlined by the effective use of perfect engravings and a coherent paint finish down to the smallest detail. Contemporary LED technology serves as the basis for the light change in red/white as well as the light functions that can be switched by the factory installed PluX22 sound decoder. The buffer beam of the vehicle can be completed prototypically with the included accessory parts.
