A Locomotive That Can Really Work! The class 216 is or was a real jack-of-all-trades. It could pull heavy freight trains loaded with coal or steel in the Ruhr area, as well as work as motive power for regular limited stop fast trains on non-electrified routes. The class 216 locomotives were also a guarantee for punctuality in commuter service or express train service and in freight service.
The class 216 in its classic DB traffic red is equipped with a modern Märklin mfx digital decoder. The monitored high-efficiency propulsion transmits the power of the motor to two axles. This guarantees enough pulling power even for rather long trains on your model railroad layout.
