Prototype: Krauss-Maffei design for the German Federal Railroad (DB) class 10.
Model: This locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. 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 running gear lights can be controlled separately in digital operation. A 72270 smoke generator can be installed in the locomotive. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. There is an adjustable close coupling between the locomotive and tender for different curves. Minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Brake hoses are included separately. Length over the buffers 30.5 cm / 12".
The 37082 express train steam locomotive will be exclusively produced for those Insiders who have been members for 10 years.
The new flagship locomotive of the German Federal Railroad was to shine not only with its technology, but also with its appearance. Consequently, the color design of the prestigious class 10 became quite an important issue. The participating locomotive builders submitted their drafts and color studies for a decision in the meeting of the factory committee on the August 4, 1955. In addition to color selection, particular attention was directed to design of the decorative striping and the smoke deflectors. The study, designated TLO 54801, from Krauss Maffei showed a very dynamic and innovative looking locomotive in a red color scheme. The extremely large tear-drop shaped smoke deflectors with diagonal front line accent the forward thrust of the machine. However, in the following meeting on December 14, 1955, the committee was not able to decide on this design.
