Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2021: The class V 160 and 216 were the Bundesbahn's express train locomotives for routes without a contact wire in the 1960s and 1970s. The redesign of this important vehicle type not only closes a gap in the Piko range, but will also enrich many model railroad layouts from Epochs III to V with numerous variants. The development team implemented the striking shape of the prototype in outstanding quality in the model and at the same time achieved ideal driving characteristics. These attributes are underlined by the effective use of perfect engravings and a coating that is consistent down to the smallest detail. Modern LED technology serves as the basis for the light change in red / white The digital interface Next18 according to NEM 662 is state-of-the-art. The vehicle's buffer beam can be completed prototypically with the enclosed accessories.
