Last year Roco issued a model (product no. 63695) of the 111 027-9 which was painted for the 850th anniversary of Munich. The Roco model is very detailed and serves as a fresh and colorfull attraction on every model railroad. I could not resist of buying the model and here it is. Enjoy it! It will be pushing around with some of my red doppelstock from the Danish manufacturer HobbyTrade.
The prototype was build in 1976 by the company Krauss Maffei, delivered to Deutsche Bundesbahn and put into service on the 22th of April 1976. It has resided in Munich its entire life.
A picture of the prototype can be found here!
Like every other Roco locomotive this is a smooth runner. It is very silent and leaves not much to ask for. The model is equipped with 8-pin digital decoder plug. The light change over with the direction of travel and there are red marker lights as well. Unfortunately, these cannot be seperately turned off.
Several parts needs to be applied seperately.
If you fancy era V and need a interesting locomotive for your commuter trains, you should look this model up.
Happy model railroading!
