    Product Features and Details
    HO Scale DC Era I 

    Prototype: The BR 97.5 Adhesion/Rack locomotive stands out as one of the largest locomotives designed for both adhesion and rack railway operations on the German rail network. Manufactured by Maschinenfabrik Esslingen locomotive works in 1922, these remarkable engines, numbered 97.5, were deployed by the Royal Württembergische State Railways to tackle the challenging terrain of Bad Württemberg, Germany. Renowned for their capability to traverse steep gradients of up to 6%, the BR 97.5 efficiently hauled heavy freight trains. Their service spanned until the mid-1960s, marking an era of exceptional performance on the rails.

    Model: This exquisite model transcends mere representation, embodying the essence of engineering mastery. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, it boasts a fully operational inner rack system, mirroring the mechanics of its real-life counterpart with a double motion drive. The outer drive rods rotate at a slower pace, while the inner rods whirl twice as fast, propelling the cog gears into motion. Equipped with a brushless can motor, the model ensures smooth and powerful performance. Its intricately designed features include a fully realized cab and boiler interior, spring-loaded buffers, and more. We proudly assert that this Micro Metakit model stands among the finest in their esteemed repertoire, capturing the essence of the iconic BR 97.5 locomotive with unparalleled precision and craftsmanship.
