The Deutsche Bundesbahn had 124 locomotives of the class E 94 (later class 194) in their vehicle fleet. Like other designs from the past, the E 94 had a characteristic shape with two stems and therefore was soon given the nickname German Crocodile. Technically, the developers and designers relied on an axle-hung drive that was perfect for transporting heavy goods trains for which the crocodiles were precisely built.
The locomotive was approved for 90 km/h, the hourly power output was 3,240 kW and the starting power output 3,900 kW. - With this enormous power, combined with the unsprung axle-hung drive, it is no wonder that the tracks began to vibrate when a class 194 locomotive arrived with a heavy goods train.
Over the coming years, selected models from the former engine shed Freilassing are to be reproduced under the label “Edition Freilassing”. The first locomotives, at the time still running under steam, entered the locomotive shed with its 20 tracks in the year 1905. Around 20 years later, the electric locomotive workshops were constructed, and further buildings followed over the subsequent years. ROCO, too, has close connections with the Bavarian city of Freilassing, as the company’s first sales office was located here. Look forward to the models in this unique edition!
