With Power and Ease to Berchtesgaden.
Few German electric locomotives were purchased only for a single route, yet road number E 44 507 placed into service in 1934 undoubtedly belongs to this group. It was initially designated as E 44 107. It roots can be found in the successful test runs done with the experimental E 44 101 starting in June of 1931 on the line from Freilassing to Berchtesgaden with its many curves and grades. Its superior performance was phenomenal: On the 4% ramp between Bad Reichenhall and Hallthurm, road number E 44 101 could haul 220 metric tons with no problem at 50 km/h / 31 mph instead of the old side rod electric locomotives with only 90 metric tons at 30 km/h / 19 mph.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, centrally mounted. 2 axles driven in each truck with cardan shafts. Traction tires. Triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The headlights at Locomotive End 2 and 1 can be turned off respectively and separately in digital operation. When the headlights are off at both ends of the locomotive, then the "Double A Light" function is on at both ends. The cab lighting can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are using for the lighting. Both double-arm pantographs can be raised and lowered as a digital function. The locomotive has separately applied grab irons.

Length over the buffers 16.4 cm / 6-1/2".
