Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 01 steam locomotive. Locomotive as it looked around 1966 with the older design boiler and Witte smoke deflectors.
|Gauge / Design type||H0 / 1:87|
Model: The locomotive has an mfx decoder and a sound generator. It has controlled Softdrive Sine high-efficiency propulsion and a compact-design maintenance-free motor. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The tender is constructed of metal. There is a close coupling between the locomotive and tender that can be adjusted for different curves. The locomotive is ready for installation of the 7226 smoke generator. The locomotive has triple LED headlights that change over with the direction of travel and a smoke generator contact. Both will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. There is a close coupler with a guide mechanism and an NEM coupler pocket on the tender.
Minimum radius for operation 360 mm / 14-3/16".
Length over the buffers 27.5 cm / 10-13/16".
The DB express train passenger cars from the 43929 car set as well as item nos. 43910, 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 go well with this locomotive.

The two-cylinder class 01 locomotives were delivered starting in 1925 as the first express locomotives from the German State Railroad's standard design program. Of the total of 231 units placed into service, those locomotives with road numbers from 01 102 on had reinforced brakes and front pilot truck wheels with a diameter of 1,000 mm / 39-3/8". This allowed the maximum speed to be increased from 120 to 130 km/h / 75 to 81 mph.
