Tillig's remake of the V200 / BR221. The body shell appears to be identical to the BTTB version except for the addition of a third light on top of the cab.
The chassis, drive mechanism and trucks are all new to the model. Two wheels have traction tires and electrical pickup is from all wheels.
Wheel distance is 26mm, distance between bogie centers is 96mm.
The lights are directional - 3 forward, none back :(
The model comes with detail parts for attachment and both BTTB and Tillig style couplers.
DCC requires the removal of the chip 'blank' on the circuit board and soldering on the chip.
Drive is Tillig quality although this model is a bit loud.

I've included two pictures with the BTTB model for comparison.

I came with this idea about the head and marker lights that could be adapted to this model. I do not know if it will work yet, I have not done it yet, but I think it is worth a try. I need to purchase some spare parts from PIKO. Most important I would need the frontal and rear boards from BR 118 (4 or 6 axle models), remove the original light bulbs used by TILLIG (unsolder from the board/ both ends), solder the 3 wires onto the Tillig board. Modify the frame (both ends) inside areas where the new boards will reside. Little work for the lenses on the shell (some fiber optic). We'll see what comes out of it!
