Created for Freight Service
In their type plan for standardized electric locomotives, the new German Federal Railroad defined a unit for freight service in the class 140. This design corresponded chiefly to the class 110, with a gear reduction adapted to the tasks of a freight locomotive. It was also used to pull passenger trains and was omnipresent thanks to the enormous quantity of 879 units. Delivery began in January of 1957. In August of 1973, the DB was finally able to take delivery of the last 140. Consequently, there were many small design differences. Several locomotives were thus equipped with buffer beams with expendable parts and multiple unit control for double-heading and shuttle train operation. The class 140 locomotives are still in use on privately owned railroads. DB Cargo has not used these units since October of 2016.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 140. Version with buffer beams with expendable parts. Ocean blue / ivory basic paint scheme. Road number 140 800-4. The locomotive looks as it did starting in 1986.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, centrally mounted. All 4 axles powered using cardan shafts. Traction tires. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The headlights at Locomotive End 2 and 1 can be turned off separately in digital operation. The locomotive has a Double A Light function. The cab lighting and engine room lighting can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. The roof equipment is detailed and includes newly designed type DBS 54 pantographs. The pantographs can be raised and lowered digitally. There are many separately applied parts such as grab irons, steps, and UIC sockets. The buffer height conforms to the NEM. There are close couplers with a guide mechanism. There is a figure of a locomotive engineer seated in Cab 1. Brake lines and prototype couplers are included as parts that can be mounted separately on the locomotive. Length over the buffers approximately 19 cm / 7-1/2.
