• Long front hood and gear block made of die cast metal, therefore more dead weight and high tractive power

• Finely detailed model with many plug-in parts and freestanding handrails
• Unobstructed view through the authentic driver's cab

In July 1977, the Moyse factory delivered the first shunting locomotive Y 8001 (in France named "Locotracteur") which was designed for shunting operations at stations, marshalling yards, construction sites and repair workshops of the SNCF. Since they were stronger and longer than their predecessors, the Y 8000 locomotives were also able to replace locomotives which hauled light freight trains.

The model can only be operated to a limited extent with analogue driving devices.
