Diesel locomotive BR 260 233-2, DB, Ep.4, BD Regensburg Bw Weiden, red RAL3004
Translated Description from LENZ:
The Role Models
Due to the need for small shunting locomotives, the DB had the V 60 developed at the beginning of the 1950s; There were pre-series models from Krupp, Krauss-Maffei, Mak and Henschel. The first V 60 were put into service in the mid-1950s and were manufactured by almost all well-known locomotive manufacturers.
Of the almost 950 V 60s built, a good 620 machines with the same friction load were listed in the number range 260 from 1968 onwards. Some machines received a reinforced frame and thus a higher friction weight and were given the number 261. The locomotive has been classified as a small locomotive since 1987 and is therefore assigned to the number range 360 or 361.
In the mid-1980s, Krauss-Maffei converted the 260/261 to radio remote control (first attempts had already been made in 1962), the serial locomotives with remote control were given the designations 364 and 365. The original 12-cylinder Maybach has been replaced since the early 1990s by a Caterpillar Engine. Most locomotives are still in use today. The models V60, BR 260, BR 360 new editions with revised drive
The models impress with their rich equipment and - like all Lenz locomotives - with the detailed depiction that is true to the original. In addition to the standard equipment:
First time in Gauge 0: The driver's position depends on the direction of travel: if you change it, the driver changes his position before starting off in the new direction of travel. Equipment of all Lenz Gauge 0 locomotives and traction vehicles:
- Decoder with USP and energy storage as well as numerous functions and sound already integrated.
All Lenz Gauge 0 locomotives set standards in equipment, functionality and authenticity and have:
- Mixed construction metal/plastic
- high performance motor
- Wheel flange height less than 1.2 mm.
- Length over buffers: 232 mm
- Remote Uncoupling
- Prototype coupler can be retrofitted
- Sprung Buffers
- Metal Wheel Sets
- Current pickup at the wheel bearing
- Constant Lighting
- Directional Lighting
- Interior Lighting
- Switchable Rear Light
