Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2022: Variant of the BR 216 of the DB in beige-blue paint. In the 1960s and 1970s, the class V 160 and 216 were the express train locomotive for routes without a contact wire on the German Federal Railroad. The model of this important vehicle type not only closes a gap in PIKO's N range, but will also enrich many model railroad layouts from Epochs III to V with numerous variants. The development team has implemented the distinctive 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 and white. The Next18 digital interface is state-of-the-art and a decoder can easily be attached.
