A WORLD'S FIRST: Dynamic steam emission by Roco! Digitally controlled steam emission! Seemingly realistically long lasting smoke clouds. For the first time steam emerges from the cylinders!
Model: The Roco 62193 German Express Locomotive Class 10 is a very large and impressive model. It offers a great level of detail and incredible running performance. Model has all wheel drive, both the locomotive and tender wheels and powered. Roco equipped this model with a syncronized smoke and sound system. Model blows smoke from the smoke stack and cylinders, the smoke is syncronized to the sound and speed. Besides the smoke and sound Roco installed lighting effects such as the illumination of the driving mechanism and driver's cab and a white/red light change can be activated separately on both sides of the locomotive via a PluX interface. Roco also did an exceptional job on the paint livery and delicate pin stripping. The BR10 is one of the most iconic German steam locomotives and no European Model Train collection is complete with out this impressive model.
Prototype: The two locomotives of the 10 class were the last express steam locomotives designed and built for the Federal German Railroad. With their powerful three cylinder power plant, they reached a top-speed of 140km/h (85mi/h), and delivered even more traction than the 01.10’s. Albeit, they came too late, since as elsewhere, diesels had won the day. In Germany, it was the V200 (also available from Roco), which doomed steam. Providing the same power as a 10 class, the diesel was more reliable and cleaner. Almost all Era III express cars will look good behind these locomotives, but the modeler should use mostly the modern 26.4m cars when modeling any era except the late 1950’s since these locomotives were the most powerful steam locomotives available. Therefore, they appeared on the most important trains during the high point of their career.
