Electric locomotive class E 44 of the German Federal Railway.
AC model with integrated load-controlled digital decoder.
From the electric locomotive series E 44 almost 200 locomotives were put into service in the period between 1932 to 1954. The power output of the 4-axled bogie locomotives was around 2200 kW and the maximum speed was 90 km / h. The locomotive hauled passenger trains as well as goods trains and therefore quickly earned the nickname girlFriday Mädchen für alles. The axle-hung drive was already revolutionary at that time, from which the locomotive families such as the E 10, E 40 and the E 50 later also benefited.
