German Federal Railroad (DB) class 110 with streamlined ends ("Pants Crease" look). B-B wheel arrangement. Built starting in 1963. Use: High quality long distance service.
Model: The locomotive has a digital connector and a motor with a flywheel. 4 axles powered. The locomotive has a close coupler mechanism, and the pantographs work both mechanically and electrically. This is the typical rebuilt Era IV version of the locomotive with no streamlining on the buffer beams, individual side vents, and a different rain gutter. Length over the buffers 103 mm / 4-1/16".
The high quality class E 10.3 locomotives were improved and rebuilt a number of times over the course of their lives which also influenced the external looks of the locomotive considerably. The streamlined buffers were replaced by complete buffer beams and the characteristic bands of vents made way for new, more efficient vents. The original rain gutters were shortened and the grab irons on the ends were improved. The result was a locomotive that differed even at first glance from its original appearance, yet without abandoning its characteristic features. These timeless units are still in service today in commuter service.
