What do you need to conquer steep grades and sharp curves on your railway? For narrow gauge railways in the eastern German region of Saxonia, the answer was the articulated Meyer locomotive. The Königlich Sächsische Staats-Eisenbahn (Royal Saxonian State Railway) began using the four-cylinder, compound locos in 1892, and in total, nearly 100 were purchased for rail lines in Saxonia. Today most of the rail lines there have been abandoned, but a few of these technical wonders have been preserved.This LGB model is a replica of the wonderfully restored No. 132 "Traditions-Lok." Like the real loco, the model offers you tremendous pulling power with two Bühler motors, one in each drivetrain. The Prototype The Royal Saxonian State Railways built an extensive narrow gauge network to reach the mountainous industrial regions of this eastern German state. After unsuccessful trials with articulated Fairlie locomotives and complex geared Klose engines, a total of 96 Meyer locomotives were built from 1892 until the 1920s, making the IV K the largest class of this rare locomotive type in the world. Both drivetrains are articulated, the exhaust steam of the rear, high pressure cylinders powers the front, low pressure cylinders. The locos were a great success, so much that they outlasted newer locomotives designed as their successors. After the Royal Saxonian State Railway was incorporated into the Deutsche Reichsbahn, some of these versatile engines were transferred to other East German narrow gauge lines, for example on the island of Rügen. In the 1950s, 22 of these locomotives were “rebuilt” and received new welded boilers, new frames and new cylinders. In effect, they were entirely new locomotives, based on the original design! Today, a number of these fascinating locos continue to operate on museum railways, among them the restored “Traditions-Lok” No. 132 in its original livery. The Model This detailed replica features: - weather-resistant construction - opening cab doors - four-way power control switch - two protected gearboxes with seven-pole Bühler motors - eight powered wheels - one traction tire - twelve power pickups - voltage stabilization circuit - smoke generator - automatic directional lanterns - one multi-purpose socket - length: 475 mm (18.7 in) - weight: 3600 g (7.9 lb)
