Comments

The green colour is too dark. The lights seem too big. The cab panes protrude too much: we can see the transparent side. The colour is way too dark and not bluish as it should be. The pantos are very beautiful.

Video

Personal 2014 traction record in MU together with the BB 16733: 89 wagons. Video processed with FFmpeg, Virtual Dub and Audacity. This kind of joke is a test of coupling resistance more than of traction force!

Modifications

  • Lokpilot V3.0 21-pin decoder.
    Assignment of function keys changed.
  • Air tanks mounted directly on the drawbars after removal of the fixing lugs. Cabin hands turned upside down.
  • Pantos: extension limitation by polystyrene stop and removal of the fixing screws.
  • Lokpilot V3.0 decoder replaced with a V4.0 to harmonize with the 16677.
