Product Features and Details
Prototype: Freight Train Steam Locomotive class 50 with cab tender of the German Federal Railroad (DB). Witte smoke deflectors, 4 boiler assemblies, shortened circulation, DB reflex glass lamps and without an inductive magnet.
Model: With a DCC digital decoder and extensive sound functions. Controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel in the boiler. 5 axles powered. Traction tires. Locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. Suitable for smoke generator 7226. The triple headlights and upgradable smoke in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The headlights are maintenance-free, warm white light emitting diodes (LED). Close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. Back of the tender and the front of the locomotive has a close coupling with NEM. The minimum radius of 360 mm. Piston rod protectors and brake hoses are included. Length over the buffers 26.5 cm.
Freight train steam locomotive class 50 the machines of the 50th emerged as the last "so-called" unit locomotives shortly before the beginning of World War II from April to July 1939 built Henschel the first twelve copies, which should be the happiest construction of the DRG immediately, because the approximately 1,600 hp and 80 km / h 1'E machine quickly developed into a universal, robust and reliable locomotive. Due to the outbreak of war on 1 September 1939, the demand for freight locomotives soared and so followed the twelve prototypes over the next few years, additional 3,152 machines. After the war, the DB still possessed more than 2,000 machines, which gradually given to the small weather instead of the large Wagner smoke deflectors and mostly losses suffered by circulation apron. A major problem formed in the 1950s in the so-called freight trains caboose, which were not present in sufficient numbers. So you finally came up with the idea to install a cabin for the train crew in 751 of the 50 tenders. Two large windows ensured a good look back on the train and inside found a large work surface with a table lamp, a padded folding seat, two jump seats, a folding wash hand basin, ceiling light, two shelves, steam heating, food warmers, a water jug and coat hooks still space. Until the end of the steam era in 1977, the 50 remained with or without cab Tender ", the" all-Steam Locomotives both freight and passenger trains on main and branch lines.
