Electric locomotive 194 178
The need for heavy freight locomotives prompted the DB to build a total of 43 locomotives from the E 94 series in the years 1954 to 1956. This also included the E 94 178, which was listed as 194 178 after the DB series scheme was changed in 1968. During the main inspection on January 8, 1976, the locomotive was painted in the colors ocean blue and ivory, which were valid on the DB from 1974. However, the distribution of the colors with a bright contrasting area on the front was not convincing due to the susceptibility to protection in this area. As the only locomotive in its series with this livery, it was also nicknamed the "Blue Mauritius".
PIKO has transferred this special locomotive to a scale of 1:87, taking into account all the special features of the prototype. The three-wire AC version has an mfx-capable digital decoder ex works and is prepared for sound retrofitting.
