The Anticipation of Christmas
A great gift idea for Christmas: In the Fifties and Sixties steam locomotives adorned with appropriate lettering often received their passengers at stations at Christmastime or Easter. Now there are also Christmas greetings as a genuine model steam locomotive in a clear Acrylic display case. The class 01 steam locomotive with its Christmas greetings and the lighted Christmas tree on the buffer beam offers a special attraction. As a special highlight, the locomotive also whistles "Süßer die Glocken nie klingen" / "The bells never ring sweeter" and "Ihr Kinderlein kommet" / "Come all ye children".
