  • Locomotive chiefly constructed of metal.
  • mfx decoder.Many operating and sound functions that can be controlled.
  • Prototypical reproduction of the locomotive with oil firing and an oil tender.
  • Drawbar between the locomotive and tender, with a guide mechanism.

Product description

Model: The locomotive comes with an mfx decoder and controlled high-efficiency propulsion. 3 axles powered, 2 traction tires. The tender is made of metal. There is a close coupling between the locomotive and tender. The locomotive is ready for installation of a 72270 smoke generator. The triple headlights and the smoke generator that can be retrofitted into the locomotive will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. Running gear lights and a sound effects module are built into the locomotive. The running gear lights, a whistle, steam locomotive operating sounds synchronized with the driving wheels, and the direct control (acceleration/braking delay) can controlled with a Control Unit or Märklin Systems. Additional sound functions can be controlled with Märklin Systems. Length over the buffers 30.5 cm / 12".


The DB express train passenger cars from the 43929 car set as well as models 43910, 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 go well with this locomotive.

Prototype information

Elegant Oil Steamer - The two class 10 express steam locomotives developed from scratch and placed into service in 1957 at the initiative of the German Federal Railroad were supposed to replace the class 01 and 01.10 locomotives, who were getting on in years, as motive power for modern long distance passenger trains. These DB parade locomotives were built by Krupp and were equipped with partial streamlining, which was supposed to decrease wind resistance and protect the cylinders from to much dirt. Road number 10 002 was equipped at the time of entering service with an efficient form of oil firing. The high performance boiler of welded construction was used in new locomotive construction and had already proven itself very well in the DB class 01.10 locomotives rebuilt starting in 1953. This design gave both of these new locomotives tremendous reserves of power with 2,500 horsepower / 1,840 kilowatts. Nevertheless, the era of steam motive power was clearly nearing its end due to the rapid electrification during the 1960s. These two elegant steam race horses thus remained a single pair despite the instructive results achieved in operation. They are a pair that is still among the legends of that era.
