Variant of the BR 216 of the DB AG in Era V with a typical bib.
In the 1960s and 1970s, the class V 160 or 216 was the express train locomotive on the German Federal Railroad for routes without contact wire.
The redesign of this important vehicle type not only closes a gap in the PIKO range, but will also enrich many model railway layouts from epochs III to V with numerous variants.
The development team has implemented the striking shape of the original in outstanding quality in the model and at the same time achieved ideal driving characteristics. These attributes are underlined by the effective use of perfect engravings and a paint finish that is harmonious down to the smallest detail. Modern LED technology serves as the basis for the light change in red/white as well as the light functions that can be switched by retrofitting a digital decoder.
The PluX22 digital interface according to NEM 658 is state-of-the-art, and a decoder can be easily attached. The buffer beam of the vehicle can be completed prototypically with the accessories that are included.
The model reflects the typical operating condition of a class 216 in Era V, characterized by the oriental red paintwork with a light gray bib. The Era V machine from PIKO appears for the first time without a snow plough. The model has maneuvering handles on the frame for this purpose.
