Product Features and Details
Deutsche Reichsbahn E06 Electric
The ES51 was built in Berlin by BMAG and delivered in 1924. It was at the time one of the worlds most modern electric locomotives. Micro Metakit just delivered a locomotive that has set the standard for all future HO locomotives. The new Micro model is the first DCC digital model they have produced and they really set the bar with this one. The new model is the Prussian Reichsbahn class E06 electric. The model has functional lights and fully detailed engineers cab and motor compartment. The motor compartment and engineers cabs are also illuminated, the interior lighting can be digitally turned on and off. The most amazing aspect of the model is that it has a fully functional old fashion electro motor. The electro motor has spinning coils which are polished in brass and spinning counter weights. When you run the model you can digitally turn on the interior lighting and watch all the movement through the windows, simply amazing. You will see the spinning brass conductor coils and the large counter weight moving. You will also notice that the large counter weight has the jack shafts connected to the drive rods so everything moves together, just like the real locomotive. Up to know no one has ever made this possible in a model. The locomotive is a moving work of art, and it has many of the same characterictics of a steam locomotive. The model has moving drive rods and spinning counter weights, it also has a steam boiler. The steam boiler was used on routes where there were no electric lines, so the locomotive was able to run on steam and electric power. We really love this model, it might just be the most function HO locomotive ever made. We received three version and we only have a few left to sell.
