Well done Roco. This classic Prussian locomotive has been rendered truly well. This model is of the era 4 variety, has a giesel ejector (flat chimney) and is one of my favorite locomotives. A must for any German layout.

Pick up is from all wheels on the tender and the 6 drivers. Motor is installed in the tender. Motor function is smooth with even acceleration. 4 traction tires are installed.
Lighting is warm white LED, 3 element directional.
It is close coupled with Roco couplers. The front one did not come installed, but parts are provided.
Comes with digital sound installed. There are 16 preprogramed functions which add greatly to the character and performance of the locomotive.
Interior and exterior details are crisply modeled, much of which is separately applied at the factory.
Instructions come in 4 languages (including English).

Thanks for the excellent photos and for the video. Looked like little was happening but then I watched it again with sound. How do they get sound in such a small model? Silly question after seeing the price.
What are you going to put behind it for a train?

They placed the decoder in the tender and stuck the speaker into the boiler. I've got a few thunder box coaches that look behind this locomotive, but light freight works too. Although built for passenger services, they were used universally.

Cool descriptions, videos and photos. Very nice indeed! I got mine yesterday (analog version). Me no like blue LED on a steam loco!
Coaches to be used with: depends on the era that is used with (?) and which country (?). Passenger: Can we add some Silberling (Tillig, Kuehn, Kruger) (DB), some Donnerbuchsen coaches (Tillig) (DB/DR), some old timers (2 or 4 axle) different versions from TILLIG, SCHIRMER, PLMODELL (now BUSCH). Freight: possibilities are endless!
What are the differences between Tillig, Roco and BECKMANN TT models (real life/model). Which one could be transformed into a Romanian version (my guess the Roco one).
Question:Why is the tender gear cover (weight) painted in black and not red? It looks funky! It really does not match the tender bogies. I give it 9 out of 10 stars!
