Treasured Exotic Locomotives
Remarkable form, unusual task: the E 60 – one of the few electric switch engines in German railroad history. Placed into service in 1927, they quickly acquired the nickname "Flat Iron" due to their long and short hoods. They acquired their unique look – small electric DR lanterns – in their characteristic shape in the small series down to road number E 60 08. Ideal for 1 Gauge fans who love prototypical switching and station operations. Or, for small layouts. Any way you look at it, a real attention getter.
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class E 60 as it looked in Era IIIb. Switch engine with cab windows as they originally looked in real life, without switching platforms, type SBS 10 pantograph, 2 DB design headlights, and 1 marker light at the ends. Green basic paint scheme. Road number E 60 08, based in Freilassing.
