You can find a summary about technical details by clicking here (in german). If you scroll down to "Die Anordnung der Abgashutzen" ("The assembly of exhausts"), there are images that show, which exhaust assembly belongs to which engine.
In short: If the exhausts are parallel on the roof, it's a V12, if they are staggered, it's a V16. My BR225 has a TB10, my BR218 a TB11 engine - the old ones.
As far as I know, Tillig used different bogies for different versions, but I can't say, if they also show other differences between the locos, and if they used the right differences for the right version - not taken for granted unfortunately.

done a bit of calculating on this unit and according to the table at http://www.tt-board.de/forum/showthread.php?t=11544
it is 103.1mm over wheel tyres from one end to the other.

that is 71.7mm (btwn bogie centres) + 23.1mm (for the truck) +8.3mm (for the wheel to edge of tyre.) For an FA1 these measurements in 1:120 scale to 101.2mm. not bad.

i'm measuring from outer tyre to outer tyre to get a sense of whether the whole mech as is, could be shoehorned into a kemtron FA1 shell, and it certainly sounds like it.

the FA1 was a bit shorter than the FA2, which i think crep out to 29" btwn bogie centres.

The newer released version (as of 3 years ago) it is much better. No changes in the gear towers (boxes), driving gears or mechanism, only the electronics (more boards), new motor (Chinese?) installed with the contact poles top & bottom (not as previous Buehler motor with both contacts on the top and soldered directly to the holes on the board), new separate light reflecting clear plastic pieces (so the red light from the LED does not dissipates and reflects thru the top headlights like previous version) nicely segregated (separated, arranged) thru the new cabin. I like this newer version better. Note: These parts are not interchangeable (compatible) with the older models. So I think that all the previous manufactured models will be released again build with the new revised components :thumbup:

These photos of my model (still working on modifying it externally) sold under TILLIG name (by Tillig), article number 96008 (limited edition) (Tillig art. # 02703 replaced it), manufactured with MATTRA shell (the former company owned by mister Tillig before he was chosen to be the president of TILLIG, when he took over BTTB after mister Carlo Parisel) and BECKMANN TT bottom die cast bogies, battery compartment and fuel tank, inside die cast and BECKMANN TT (also) mechanism & electronics. The model originally was released in year 2000 together with the "old red" version (Tillig art. # 02700 replaced it). The model (s) come adapted without lights (nor head and marker). My model was modified (adapted both). Very heavy model, typical BECKMANN TT standard, own ingenuity. As we all know all the BECKMANN TT models are very expensive, but since this model was sold under Tillig name, in 2000 I've paid $100 for it (MIAMI TRAINS). In 2002 when I visited Berlin, I saw both versions (BECKMANN TT) at Michas Bahnhof shop for 100 euros, at that time the exchange rate was the same (1-1). I am not sure if he still has these models.
