 About the Model:

 Even after 50 years - thanks to their timeless appearance - the legendary cult locomotives of the BR 103 series are among the visual highlights on German railway lines and attract a lot of attention. This is a newly-tooled model of this iconic engine for the TEE and IC service of the DB. In showing the original prototypical skirts, scissor pantographs, and red/beige paint in the short version, PIKO is fulfilling the heart’s desire of many G-scale operators and lovers of attractive locomotives. As the first model of this class in G-Scale, the PIKO BR 103 distinguishes itself by replicating all the external appearance characteristics of its prototype. The finely painted and printed model impresses with maximum reliability, robustness, ball-bearing axles, chrome-plated wheels and directional lighting. The cab includes an engineer figure and control stand.

To emphasize further, there are many individually applied details such as hand grabs and windshield wipers. In addition the BR 103 from PIKO also has high pulling power and excellent driving characteristics. The model is prepared for easy installation of a digital decoder and sound system, as well as engine compartment lighting.
