Sound electric locomotive / diesel locomotive "dual mode" BR 248 MKB VI, including PIKO sound decoder

New for 2024: The large side surfaces with the distinctive fans and the roof with a current collector characterize the appearance of the modern Vectron Dual Mode. Great importance was also placed on details in the design and tool making: extremely three-dimensional engravings on the ventilation grilles and bogies with an excellent visual depth effect underline this. Technically, the model continues the proven line of PIKO designs. A powerful mid-engine is used as the drive, two flywheels ensure excellent running characteristics and diagonally arranged traction tires enable the transport of long trains. In digital operation, the driver's cab and driver's desk lighting can be switched digitally. For this purpose, the model has a PSD XP sound decoder from the factory, which in combination with the large loudspeaker also ensures special sound experiences on the model railway layout.

Charlie's Tip:

The locos were delivered in the first quarter of 2021 for use on MKB’s existing freight services as well as to haul new traffic.
‘The freedom to operate on non-electrified tracks offers cost advantages and makes Vectron Dual Mode ideal for MKB’, said Managing Director Johannes Marg.
‘The performance and efficiency of this locomotive perfectly matches our strategic orientation in freight transport.’
Mindener Kreisbahnen traces its history to 1898. It is 100% owned by the Minden-Lübbecke district authority, and has a 40 route-km network around Minden with 29 private sidings taking it to 50·7 track-km. Its freight traffic in 2018 totalled 614 200 tonnes and 94·5 million tonne-km. The company also owns local bus operator MKB-MühlenkreisBus.
