Steam locomotive BR 50, DB. Analógica. Ref 718203 (Fleischmann N)
Steam locomotive class 50 of the DB (Deutschen Bundesbahn), epoch III.
Special: with cabin tender
In true to the original livery and lettering. In-plane applied windows. Furnished driver's cab. Unobstructed view between boiler and chassis true to the original. Fully moveable Heusinger control. Brake shoes between the wheels. Metal die-cast chassis. Motor with flywheel. Drive on 8 wheels in the tender, four of them have traction tyres. Triple headlights on both ends of the locomotive. Locomotive-tender-close coupling. Automatic couplers on both ends of the locomotive.
The variants of the Class 50 seem to be countless. The variant with four domes, running metal boards and skirt, Witte smoke deflectors and cab tender is particularly interesting. Typical for the epoch III locomotive is the partially aluminum-coloured lettering with DB-emblem.
Until 1962, almost 800 Swiss tenders of the Class 50 (050) were fitted with a driver‘s cab to save cabooses. The cabin was placed in the middle of the tender, so the water box was extended to the rear beyond the buffer beams.
