A model of a bulldozer and a load insert are included as freight. The total length of the trains depending on the mix of cars in each, example: 60 cm / 23-5/8" + 53 cm / 20-7/8".

Contents: 12 no. 24230 curved track, 7 no. 24188 straight track, 4 no. 24172 straight track, and 1 no. 24088 feeder track. Plug-in transformer and digital controller included.

Highlights:
Complete basic set with 2 freight trains, a large C Track oval, and digital control.

The computer designation 081 had been planned for the class 81 tank locomotives in the numbering scheme after 1968. The end of steam operation was already foreseeable at this time. In the Eighties, the DB used several industrial diesel locomotives as part of a test program for purchasing new motive power. These locomotives were given the class designation 258. Changes in the freight service market led to regular production of these locomotives, but chiefly for privately owned railroads.

This set can be expanded with the C Track extension sets and with the entire C Track program.

Widely Known Small Locomotive - One of the most popular German steam locomotives is without a doubt the different versions of the Prussian class T3. Henschel delivered the first unit of an 0-6-0T wet steam locomotive for branch line service to the Prussian State Railways (KPEV). The T 3 impressed people with its maintenance-friendly qualities, sturdiness, and multifaceted uses. For these reasons the KPEV purchased the immense number of 1,345 units from 1881 to 1910, which resulted in a broad distribution of these lovely tank locomotives to cover all of the railroad’s needs for this type of motive power. During the provincial railroad period the T3 locomotives were often used for branch line service. Later they were mainly concentrated in switching and transfer work due to the constantly increasing train loads. After the merger of the provincial railroads the T 3 tank locomotives were taken over by the German State Railroad (DRG) and run as the class 89.3. Even the two state railroads in the former divided Germany still had large numbers of these unpretentious, durable units on their motive power rosters. In addition, various units went to industrial and privately owned railroads.

The 37141 branch line locomotive is one of the typical motive power units for the Langenschwalbach commuter cars in the 43048 and 43049 sets.

Comfort on Sharp Curves - In 1889, a rail line was built to the elegant spa of Langenschwalbach, now known as Bad Schwalbach. The line ran to Wiesbaden and had grades of about 3.3% as well as curves with a minimum radius of 200 meters / 656 feet 2 inches. The Prussian State Railroad had a new type of passenger car built especially for the many curves on this right-of-way. Although commuter cars at that time almost always had two or three rigid axles, the Langenschwalbach cars were equipped with 2-axle trucks. This design became known as the Langenschwalbach car, and it proved so effective that it was built for almost 35 years from 1892 on with no changes.

The World Record Steam Locomotive ... The DRG covered only a small, exclusive market segment for long distance passenger service with the express passenger service provided by the diesel powered rail car trains. Locomotive-hauled trains continued to form the backbone of the passenger service. They offered far more capacity, more room, comfort, and service, for example: dining and sleeping cars. And yet more speed was required for these trains too. The locomotive builders developed suggestions for a steam locomotive that was planned for a speed of 175 km/h or 109 mph. The DRG decided on a coal-fired three-cylinder locomotive with a 4-6-4 wheel arrangement. Its dimensions were immense: The driving wheels had a diameter of 2.30 meters or 90-9/16 inches, the boiler tubes were 7 meters or 275-9/16 inches long, and the power output reached 2,360 pounds per square inch. Road number 05 002 surpassed the world speed record for steam locomotives between Hamburg and Berlin with a speed of 200.4 km/h or 125.25 mph in a test run on May 11, 1936, a record that still stands today. The fact that this value was never surpassed proves the limits of this technology. The immense moving masses of cylinders, drive rods and side rods did not permit higher speeds. The fireman was hard pressed to keep the boiler steamed up. The two units built in 1935 have a very futuristic look with their red streamlining. As a status symbol of the DRG, they were used in express passenger service and bore the Olympic rings for a while.

The 87105 set has the right Era II express train passenger cars for this locomotive.
