Class 78.10 Steam Locomotive
The prototype is a symbol for the German Federal Railroad's thoughts about reawakening and its willingness to experiment at a time when it was still new. Theoretically well thought out but not feasible practically, the two class 78.10 locomotives remained the only ones of their type. The H0 model of road number 78 1001 is now available for the first time and as completely new tooling exclusively for Insider members.
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) steam locomotive, road number 78 1001, 4-6-4T design with a type 2T17 two-axle short tender. The locomotive looks as it did around 1951.
- Completely new tooling.
- Especially intricate metal construction.
- Many separately applied details.
- Cab lighting controlled digitally.
- Firebox flickering controlled digitally.
- Current-conducting coupler on the tender controlled digitally.
- Factory-installed smoke unit, controlled digitally.
- mfx+ digital decoder and extensive operating and sound functions included.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. The locomotive has a built-in smoke unit that will work in conventional operation and that can be controlled digitally. The dual headlights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. Firebox flickering can be controlled digitally. The cab lighting can also be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. The current-conducting coupler on the tender can be controlled digitally. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Piston rod protection sleeves, brake hoses, and reproduction prototype couplers are included. The locomotive also comes from the factory with figures of a locomotive engineer and a fireman. Length over the buffers approximately 19.9 cm / 7-7/8".
