Märklin 39053 Streamlined Steam Locomotive

Prototype: German State Railroad (DRG) class 05 streamlined express steam locomotive. Version with powdered coal firing and the engineer’s cab at the front. Wine red basic paint scheme. Road number 05 003. The locomotive looks as it did around 1937.

Model: The locomotive has the new mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. Powdered coal being moved with a compressor (Operating Sounds 1) can be activated by means of the function button. The locomotive has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. Minimum curved for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16″. Cutouts in the side streamlining for smaller track curves can be filled in with add-on fill pieces. The dual headlights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. A third headlight as a headlight for oncoming trains can be controlled separately in digital operation. The engineer’s cab lighting can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. The locomotive and tender have numerous, separately applied grab irons. A 7226 smoke generator and a figure of a locomotive engineer are packed at the factory with the locomotive. There is a permanent close coupling between the locomotive and tender. Length over the buffers 31.0 cm / 12-1/4″.
