Piko 37570 - DR IV BR 118 Diesel Loco

Prototype
The BR 118 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn was the biggest diesel locomotive built in East
Germany and was manufactured at the VEB Lokomotivbau “Karl Marx” in Potsdam-
Babelsberg. The locomotive was developed with a B-B axle arrangement, with the goal
of replacing outdated steam locomotives on the DR. Following testing of several preproduction
locomotives, regular production spanned 1963 to 1965. The locomotives received
two twelve-cylinder diesel engines of 900 HP each. A six-axle version with C-trucks
was also developed, for use on branch lines. This design was delivered with a
pair of engines uprated to 1000 HP. These were later replaced with 1200 HP engines
when the time came for major overhaul.
The BR 118 was used universally and pulled everything from express passenger trains to
heavy freights. The last examples were removed from regular service on the DB AG in
1995. Several private shortline railroads still use the robust locomotives. 


Model
With the G-Scale model of the BR 118, PIKO again fulfi lls a wish of numerous garden
railroaders, as well as those who like attractive and impressive large diesel locomotives.
The PIKO model offers the classic look of the prototype BR 118, for the fi rst time in
G-Scale.  The model combines fi ne detail with sturdy construction for reliable service.
The hard chrome-plated wheels turn in ball-bearings, the headlights change with the
direction of travel, the detailed cab includes interior lighting, and even the engine room
detail is visible.  Numerous separately-applied parts, such as handrails, windshield wipers
and truck details, compliment the fi nely reproduced grilles and fans.
The model is ready for easy installation of a digital decoder, plus a sound unit with
realistic  BR 118 sounds.  Two pulsed smoke generators can also be fi tted, to simulate
the exhaust of the twin diesel engines.  And the engine room is ready for installation of
interior lighting.
