Class E 60 Electric Locomotive

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.

  • Product description

    Model: The frame and locomotive body are constructed of metal. The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder, controlled high-efficiency propulsion, and extensive sound functions. It can be operated with AC power, DC power, Märklin Digital, or DCC. All of the driving axles are powered by means of a powerful centrally mounted motor. The type SBS 10 double-arm pantograph with a single contact strip can be raised and lowered in digital operation by means of a servomotor. The white dual headlights are LEDs. They will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally.
    An upper marker light also comes on depending on the direction of travel. The cab has warm white LED lighting. The cab doors can be opened, there are interior details, and the cab has a figure of an engineer. The locomotive has metal grab irons and many other separately applied details: signs, antenna, windshield wipers, whistle, etc. The buffer beams have sprung buffers and separately applied brake lines. The locomotive has built-in, completely newly developed remote-controlled Telex couplers front and rear. The locomotive has factory-installed claw couplers that can be replaced by 2 prototype couplers included with the model. The locomotive has a high level of weight for good pulling power without traction tires. It also has extensive sound functions. Minimum radius for operation 1,020 mm / 40-3/16".
    Length over the buffers 35 cm / 13-3/4".
