"Langer Heinrich" / "Long Henry" Oil Jumbo
It was an impressive show, when two heavy class 44 Öl (starting in 1968: 043) heavy steam freight locomotives hauled the "Long Henry" ore trains of up to 4,000 metric tons as double headed motive power and at speeds up to 80 km/h / 50 mph from Emden in the direction of the Ruhr area or Saarland. For many years, this use of oil-fired units formed the high point of heavy freight service on the DB and it can now be modelled on a model railroad too. Starting in 1955, the DB had 32 class 44 locomotives equipped with oil firing that enabled an increase in performance of around 190 pounds per square inch. Up to the end of steam motive power on the DB in October of 1977, the last class 043 units were used and based at Rheine and Emden.

Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 5 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and the oil tender are constructed mostly of metal. The 7226 smoke unit can be installed in the locomotive. The triple headlights change over with the direction of travel. They and the smoke unit that can be installed in the locomotive will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The cab lights can also be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. There is a close coupler with an NEM pocket and a guide mechanism on the tender and on the front of the locomotive. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Protective sleeves for the piston rods, brake hoses, and imitation couplers are included as detail parts.
Length over the buffers 26 cm / 10-1/4".
