This model is exceptional in appearance and function. A must have for any TT modeler.

Pick up is from all wheels and all axles are driven. 4 traction tires are installed.
Weight is perfect.
Lighting is 3 element directional. LED's are warm white rather than the standard yellow and are bright enough to actually light the path ahead.
It is close coupled with modern Tillig couplers.
NEM 651 plug is installed for digital operation and space is prepared for a sound module.
Motor function is smooth with even acceleration.
Interior and exterior details are crisply modeled and are specific to the prototype. Additional details are supplied separately for installation.
Instructions come in many languages.

In comparison, this model far outstrips the Tillig version.

I just got a pleasant surprise in the mail. I ordered a second model to fill out my locomotive roster and was prepared to change the number plates when it arrived, however; the new one also comes with a different number, T679.1021. Although it is sold under the same item number, 36232, it seem like Roco has decided to randomize the markings. Nice!

The second pic is SEEEEEEXY!

And man, I love the interior details that Roco has in these locos. Add a little "oil" to the details and you have a bonafide engine room. My hat's off to them.

Roco BR 120 model 36230

Freight diesel locomotive BR 120 048-4 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, Ep. IV

In the Tillig's BR120, there is a large gap between the trolley and body. In Roco:

We can buy a model with sound, but only DR (36231). There is a simple way to mount the Roco sound modul in any other version:
:arrow: order a separate sound decoder and a separate speaker:
Image Image
:arrow: Once removed from its packaging know ESU Loksound mini plug NEM651 and the typical speaker 16x25 mm.
Image Image
:arrow: assemble the decoder:
Image Image Image
There are more sounds in the Roco decoder, than the original ESU mini BR120 one.

How else is it going to steer? Sorry, couldn't help myself :)))

I assume it's the throttle?
