The "Schorsch" - a unique one-off of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR).
The steam locomotive 18 314 of the German State Railroad (DR) of the GDR, later called “Schorsch”, has an unusual, even extraordinary life story. Once in service in 1919 as the Baden “noble racer” of the “IV h” series, DRG took it over as 18 314. After the end of the Second World War, the locomotive was exchanged for an S 3/6 in the Soviet zone, where the later VES-M Halle urgently needed a fast four-cylinder compound steam locomotive for test drives. In order to be even faster, it was given a Reko boiler, partial cladding, a new driver's cab and tender and a green paint job in 1960. The icing on the cake was the conversion to main oil firing in 1967. At the end of 1971 it was shut down and sold to the FRG in 1984. Since 1986, on permanent loan from the HEF, it has been one of the highlights in the Auto and Technology Museum in Sinsheim.
Prototype: Express train steam locomotive 02 0314-1 with main oil firing and oil tender for the German State Railroad of the GDR (DR / GDR). Conversion version as a test locomotive of the VES-M Halle (Saale). Version with Reko boiler and partial cladding, based on the steam locomotive 18 314 (former Badische IVh). With Witte smoke deflectors and one-sided Indusi. The car looks as it did around 1970/71.
Completely new development.
Particularly filigree metal construction.
A multitude of separately applied details.
With smoke insert and speed-dependent, dynamic smoke output as standard.
Driver's cab lighting and landing gear lighting can be controlled digitally.
Digital decoder with extensive operating and sound functions.
Model: The locomotive has a digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. Locomotive and tender largely made of metal. Standard built-in smoke insert, with speed-dependent, dynamic smoke output. The triple headlights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. In addition, two red lamps at the front of the locomotive can be controlled digitally. Cab lighting and landing gear lighting can be controlled separately in digital operation. Lighting with maintenance-free warm white and red light-emitting diodes (LED). Close coupling with kinematics between the locomotive and tender. Kinematics-guided close coupling with NEM shaft on the tender. Minimum radius of 360 mm that can be driven on. For large radii or showcases, a panel without a wheel cutout is included below the driver's cab for replacement. Piston rod protection tubes and brake hoses are also included.
Length over the buffers 27.2 cm.
This model can be found in an AC version in the Märklin H0 assortment under item number 39027.
