LGB 22040 Class Ge 4/4 I Electric Locomotive with Digitally Controlled Lights and Sound

This is a model of a Rhaetian Railroad class Ge 4/4 I electric locomotive, road number 605. The green paint scheme and lettering are prototypical for Era IV. Four wheelsets driven by two powerful, ball bearing Bühler motors. The locomotive has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions. It also has double-arm pantographs driven by servomotors that can be controlled digitally. The roof equipment is prototypical.

Length over the buffers 54 cm / 21-1/4".

The first class Ge 4/4 I locomotives were delivered as early as 1947 – they were the first modern RhB electric locomotives with trucks and single-axle drive. Their prototype was the BLS class Ae 4/4, which had been delivered 3 years earlier. These RhB locomotives turned out to be marvelous. A sign of this is the fact that even today – after 74 years – a pair of these 1,600 horsepower and 80 km/h / 50 mph units are still in daily use. At the end of the Eighties, these locomotives were modernized. They were given new cabs and later single-arm pantographs, which along with the red paint scheme greatly changed their appearance. Unfortunately, none of these locomotives has been preserved in their original condition.

If running this locomotive on an analog layout and you need the basic sound functions "turned on", please leave a note on your order and we will do this for you before the order ships.
