The prototype described is a German Federal Railroad (DB) class 44 heavy freight steam locomotive with a type 2´2´T30 tub-style tender. It has a black/red basic paint scheme, Witte smoke deflectors, dual headlights, smoke box with central locking, and no inductive magnet. The locomotive's road number is 44 1143 and it appears as it did around 1950.

The model of this locomotive features an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. The locomotive also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel mounted in the boiler. It has 5 axles that are powered and traction tires. The locomotive and tender are mostly constructed of metal. The 7226 smoke unit can be installed in the locomotive. The dual headlights change over with the direction of travel and can be controlled digitally. The cab lighting, firebox flickering, and flickering at the ash pan can also be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. There is also a close coupler with an NEM pocket and a guide mechanism on the rear of the tender and on the front of the locomotive. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Protective sleeves for the piston rods, brake hoses, and imitation prototype couplers are included. The length over the buffers is 26 cm / 10-1/4".
