Powerful Pressure in the Boiler
The Berlin Machinery Builders, Inc. Schwartzkopff delivered the first class 41 fast freight locomotives in 1936. These units turned out to be general-purpose locomotives for medium heavy trains. Between 1936 and 1941, 366 locomotives of this class were built, most of which were acquired after World War II by the German Federal Railroad and the German State Railroad (East Germany).
Model: The locomotive has a digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 4 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. A 7226 smoke unit can be installed in the locomotive. The triple headlights change over with the direction of travel. They and the smoke unit that can be installed in the locomotive will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender that can be adjusted for the track curves. The rear of the tender and the front of the locomotive have close couplers with NEM pockets and guide mechanisms. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Protective piston sleeves, brake hoses, and imitation prototype couplers are included.
Length over the buffers 27.5 cm / 10-13/16".
- Partially open bar frame and many separately applied details.
- High-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler.
- Digital decoder and a variety of operational and sound functions included.
