Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2023: Form variant of the BR 103 as a short version of the DB AG in Era V. Even more than 50 years after their appearance, the legendary cult locomotives of the BR 103 are among the visual highlights on German railway lines thanks to their timeless appearance and attract a lot of attention. The model impresses equally with a heavy die-cast metal frame with a finely detailed housing, the finest paintwork and printing and filigree metal pantographs. The five-pole, ball-bearing motor with two flywheels ensures excellent driving characteristics. The LED light changes from white to red depending on the direction of travel and, like the interior lighting in the driver's cab, can be controlled digitally with the factory-integrated PluX22 decoder. The model also has a speaker with the largest possible membrane area for optimal sound experiences. Brake hoses for retrofitting are included.
