All Lenz gauge 0 locomotives set standards in terms of equipment, functionality and authenticity, and have unique options:
- Mixed construction metal / plastic
- High performance motor
- remote controlled, automatic coupling
- Constant light
- Direction-dependent light change
- Spring buffer
- Metal wheel sets
- Flange height less than 1.2 mm
- Automatic detection of Lenz digital (DCC) or conventional DC voltage operation (analog)
BR 38 / P8 - the prototype
The passenger locomotive introduced as the Prussian P8 of the 35.17 class later became the 38.10-40 and is the prototype for the 0 gauge model.
After superheated steam engines had already proven to be easy to maintain and high-performance in the G 8, the P 8 with its economical superheated steam twin engine formed a design milestone in the construction of passenger train locomotives. With a wheelbase (including the 2'2'T 21.5 tender) of less than 16 meters, the P 8 also fit on small turntables. In contrast to its predecessor, the P 6, the P 8 ran 100 km / h forwards and 50 km / h backwards, in the later push-pull train service on the DB with a tub tender and closed driver's cab even 85 km / h backwards.
BR 38 / P8 - the model
This locomotive model also impresses with its extensive equipment and - like all Lenz locomotives - with its detailed representation true to the original. In addition to the standard equipment :
Decoder with USP and energy storage as well as numerous functions and sound already integrated
prototypical locomotive-tender spacing (please read the instructions !)
The locomotive has a minimum radius of 914 mm (Lenz R1)
Noiseless motor control enables smooth, jerk-free running and particularly good slow driving properties
The speed of the motor is determined by a magnetic angle sensor mounted on the motor axis
On both sides of the locomotive there is the automatic Lenz coupler, which can be operated remotely in digital operation, with a close coupling backdrop
The locomotive has constantly bright headlights at the front and rear, the lamps are equipped with maintenance-free LEDs, and the light changes depending on the direction of travel
In digital mode, the front and rear headlights can be switched on and off separately, and the brightness can be set separately from other lights
The cab lighting can be switched separately from the headlights, the brightness can be set separately from other lighting
The shunting process reduces the speed of the locomotive by about half, so shunting movements can be carried out with particular sensitivity; Maneuvering light means that both the front and rear (white) lamps are switched on regardless of the direction of travel
The newly developed locomotive tender coupling
With this coupling mimic , the radius R1 (914 mm) can also be used with a prototypical distance between the locomotive and tender . This video (of the BR 50) shows how the locomotive and tender are connected and disconnected.
With this model you can look forward to many variants: of course there will be the DB version with box tender 2'2T 30 and a DB version with tub tender, but also a DR version with box tender, large smoke deflectors and central locking smoke chamber door. The legendary P 8 in DRG version comes as a special series. All locomotives with the new locomotive tender coupling, fantastic original sound and steam output synchronized with the wheels.
