Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 01.10 express train steam locomotive with an older design boiler and a type 2´3 T38 coal tender. Black/red basic paint scheme. Version without streamlining. Striking crosswise mounted feedwater heater on the smoke box. Dual headlights. Witte smoke deflectors and inductive magnet on one side. The locomotive looks as it did around 1950.
|Gauge / Design type||Trix H0 /|
Model: The locomotive has a digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled, high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. The locomotive has a factory-installed smoke unit, with speed-dependent dynamic smoke exhaust. Dual headlights, which change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The cab lighting, firebox flickering, and running gear lights can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free, warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. There is a close coupler with an NEM pocket and a guide mechanism on the tender. The buffer height on the locomotive and tender adheres to the NEM. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Piston rod protection sleeves and brake hoses are included.
Length over the buffers 27.7 cm / 10-7/8".
A set of express train passenger cars to go with this locomotive including Group 29 passenger cars as new tooling is being offered under item number 23629 also exclusively only for Trix members in 2023.
This model can be found in an AC version in the Märklin H0 assortment under item number 39760 exclusively for Insider members.
The class 01.10 older design express train steam locomotive is being produced in 2023 in a one-time series exclusively only for Trix Club members.
After several years of rudimentary train service, the new German Federal Railroad undertook in 1949 the first steps of offering high-quality train service again. Express trains were planned running at least at speeds of 100 to 120 kilometers per hour / 60 to 75 miles per hour. Higher speeds were not possible until the Sixties due to the roadbed and the available locomotive roster. The 54 remaining three-cylinder class 01.10 express steam locomotives were suddenly very much in demand with the introduction of a higher quality express train service. They were only ten years old and were modern locomotives in terms of their design. The DB thus had the streamlining removed from all of the 01.10 units and overhauled for express train service. The reasons for the complete removal of the streamlining on the boiler was the fact that the streamlining was very damaged and was superfluous, because they were no longer run at the high speeds for which these units had been designed. All of the class 01.10 locomotives were now given boiler cladding. Sheet metal cladding was built around the older design boiler and held in place with boiler bands. It was easy to recognize locomotives from the front with the older design boiler without streamlining: On a streamlined locomotive, the entire boiler superstructure was hidden under the streamlined shell. The feedwater heater sitting crosswise above the smoke box was thus recessed deeper in the smoke box and the smoke box door was flattened accordingly at the top.
