Prototype: German State Railroad Company (DRG) class 05 003 steam locomotive with the engineer's cab at the front, the so-called cab forward.
Model: This locomotive is an exquisite, completely equipped brass handmade model in the elegant red paint scheme of the DRG in Era II. It is technically perfectly crafted out of etched brass parts. The locomotive is equipped with a powerful can motor with a bell-shaped armature that powers a metal gear drive. All driving axles powered. The triple headlights are warm white LEDs that change over with the direction of travel. The upper lights (headlight for oncoming train) can be turned off separately by means of a switch. The locomotive has open brass spoked wheels. The spacing between the locomotive and the tender can be adjusted. The engineer's cab has windows and a reproduction of the cab interior. Fill-in pieces are included for the cutouts on the skirting so that the model can be displayed perfectly in a display case. Additional detail parts are included to complete the buffer beam. The locomotive comes with the Märklin Z coupler on the rear. The locomotive has many separately applied lines and details. The brake imitations as well as sand pipes and rail clearance devices are indicated. The buffers have straight and curved buffer plates. The minimum radius for operation is 195 mm / 7-11/16" (R2) due to the fine detailing and the length of the model. Length over the buffers approximately 126 mm / 5". The locomotive is packaged in a real wood case, and the set also has a replica of the builder's plate made of metal.
