as it did around 1937.
The locomotive has the new mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound
functions. Different sounds of powdered coal being moved with a compressor

buttons. The locomotive has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with
a flywheel, in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive
and tender are constructed mostly of metal. Minimum curved for operation
is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Cutouts in the side streamlining for smaller
track curves can be filled in with add-on fill pieces. The dual headlights
change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional
operation, and can be controlled digitally. A third headlight as a headlight
for oncoming trains can be controlled separately in digital operation.

a one-time series only for Insider members.
05 003 Steam Locomotive with a Cab on the Front In 1933 the German
State Railroad Company (DRG) contracted with the firm Borsig to design
and build two three-cylinder streamlined steam locomotives as the class
05 to reach speeds as high as 175 km/h / 109 mph and beyond for the
first time. As early as the presentation of the designs, there were
doubts whether the locomotive crews would be able to monitor the track
and the signals sufficiently at 175 km/h / 109 mph. The decision makers
therefore requested development of a third locomotive with the same
performance but with the cab at the front of the locomotive as with
electric locomotives. In 1934, the DRG thereby ordered a third high
speed locomotive from Borsig as road number 05 003 with a cab located
at the front. Since the locomotive engineer and fireman were not to
be separated, the Borsig designers came up with a 4-6-4 plan in which
the outer firebox was located in the rear relative to the main direction
of operation, while the tender was coupled behind the smoke box. However,
this design permitted only oil firing or powdered coal firing. Since
oil firing was not considered give the raw material situation at that
time, the decision was made to equip the locomotive for powdered hard
coal firing. In the fall of 1937, the first test runs took place on
the route Berlin ? Hamburg. At this time, powdered hard coal was not
yet available. The decision was therefore made to run with powdered
lignite. As expected there were no problems in terms of combustion,
however the maximum speed reached was 156 km/h / 97 mph. Subsequent
attempts with powdered hard coal did not achieve considerably better
results. World War II prevented fundamental modifications and the locomotive
was therefore stored for a long time. When the shortage of locomotive
increased sharply in the summer of 1944, road number 05 003 was remembered
and by February 14, 1945 it was converted at Hennigsdorf to a normal
version for lump coal firing. On February 15, 1945, it was assigned
to the Hamburg-Altona district where it was used for various purposes
and then it remained in storage until May of 1947. Subsequently it was
transferred to the Hamm District at the request of the British Occupation
Authorities and after an overhaul was used in scheduled express train
service between Hamm and Cologne until it was placed in storage again
in October of 1947 due to damages. At the start of 1950 road number
05 003 as well as road numbers 05 001 and 002 were overhauled again
at the firm Krauss-Maffei in Munich. After that, it along with its siblings
went to the Hamm District and were now used fully in railroad operations.
These locomotives were given a three-day service plan and from 1951
on, they had their longest run between Hamburg and Cologne at 478 km
/ 299 miles. From 1953 on, they even ran for a short time between Hamburg
and Frankfurt (Main) a full 703 km / 439 miles. At this time, these
units gave their best performance. Road number 05 003 reached a proud
22,345 km / 13,966 miles in August of 1954. In the summer of 1955, these
units shined in "F-Zug" express service with the trains F
1/2 ?Hanseat?, F 13/14 ?Dompfeil?, and F 16 ?Sachsenross?. However,
they were not to have a long life, because as a minor class they were
on the cut list. Road number was stored in operating condition on September
9, 1957, was ordered into retirement on June 16, 1958, and was scrapped
in 1960. In its relatively short working life it achieved a remarkable
798,328 km / 498,955 miles.
