Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2023: With the completely new construction of the class 185, PIKO is fulfilling the desire of many model railroaders for a contemporary model of this modern locomotive series. The striking proportions of the original were perfectly scaled and transferred to the model. The bogies, which are engraved in great detail, individually attached sandpits, free-standing handles and filigree pantographs are evidence of modern toolmaking and production techniques. With its two finely balanced centrifugal masses, the powerful mid-engine ensures excellent driving characteristics and traction, which is further supported by two diagonally arranged traction tires. From the factory, the model has maintenance-free LED lighting with light changes depending on the direction of travel, as well as a modern Next 18 interface for the easy installation of a digital decoder, which enables even more prototypical operation on the model railway layout.
