The fifth Borsig Edition is devoted to a special unit: The DRG entered a new path with the 05 003 streamlined express steam locomotive designed for 175 km/h / 109 mph. A cab mounted on the front of the locomotive was designed to give the locomotive crews a better view of the line and the signals at 175 km/h / 109 mph. Since the boiler was now reversed, only firing with powdered hard coal could be used due to the fuel availability. Road number 05 003 was delivered in 1937. The subsequent test runs initially did not give good results and World War II prevented fundamental modifications. The locomotive remained in storage for a long time and it was rebuilt into a normal version in 1944/45. The question remains, what would have road number 05 003 been like with oil firing?

Prototype: German State Railroad (DRB) class 05 streamlined express steam locomotive. Version with powdered coal firing and the engineer's cab at the front. Deep black basic paint scheme with a white decorative stripe. Road number 05 003. Locomotive 14.555 in the delivery book for the Borsig Locomotive Works, Hennigsdorf, Germany. 

Model: The locomotive has the new mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. Powdered coal being moved with a compressor (Operating Sounds 1) can be activated by means of the function button. The locomotive has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. Minimum radius 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. The engineer's cab lighting can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. The locomotive and tender have numerous, separately applied grab irons. A 7226 smoke generator can be installed on the locomotive. There is a permanent close coupling between the locomotive and tender.

Length over the buffers 31.0 cm / 12-1/4".

A suitable collector's case made of wood and glass is included, and there is a relief of the characteristic Borsig gate of the Borsig Locomotive Works on the back wall of the case. An engraved metal plate including the factory number is mounted on the base of the display case. A high quality excerpt from the delivery book is included.
