O Scale Steam Locomotives

Steam locomotive BR 01, Ep.4, Witte smoke deflectors, 3rd headlight

Translated Description from LENZ:

BR 01 - the role model

The DB locomotive for heavy express train service. The 01 was the first series standard steam locomotive with the wheel arrangement 2C1 (Pacific locomotives). The 01 were built from 1925 to 1938. In the early 1950s, the Wagner smoke deflectors were replaced with the Witte type. Between 1957 and 1961 some locomotives received new boilers.

BR 01 - the model

This locomotive model also impresses with its rich equipment and - like all Lenz locomotives - with the detailed depiction that is true to the original. Equipment of the BR 01 in addition to the standard equipment:

  • Decoder with USP and energy storage as well as numerous functions and sound already integrated
  • prototypical locomotive-tender distance.
  • Silent motor control enables smooth, jerk-free running and particularly good slow-moving characteristics
  • The speed of the motor is determined by an angle magnetic sensor mounted on the motor axis
  • The lamps are equipped with maintenance-free LEDs
  • In digital operation, the front and rear headlights can be switched on and off separately, and the brightness can be set separately from other lights
  • The driver’s cab lighting can be switched separately from the headlight, the brightness can be set separately from other lighting
  • The shunting gear reduces the speed of the locomotive by about half, so shunting movements can be carried out particularly sensitively; Maneuvering light means that both the front and rear (white) lights are on regardless of the direction of travel
The Lenz Locomotive Tender Coupling

With this coupling mimic, the radius R1 (914 mm) can also be used with a prototypical distance between the locomotive and the tender. This video (using the BR 50 as an example) shows how the locomotive and tender are connected and disconnected.

Equipment of all Lenz Gauge 0 locomotives and traction vehicles:

All Lenz Gauge 0 locomotives set standards in equipment, functionality and authenticity and have:

  • Mixed construction metal/plastic
