26817 Class 99.72 Steam Locomotive

Congratulations: 65 years "99 236" Brockenlok

In the Fifties, the German State Railroad purchased a small series of new construction locomotives to supplement the outdated motive power roster chiefly of the Harzquer Railroad – but also of other meter gauge railroads. These units were a further development of road numbers 99 221 to 223 delivered in the Thirties. With an output of 700 horsepower, these 60 metric ton and 12.5 meter / 40 foot 8 inch long locomotives fulfilled the requirements set for them after initial teething problems were corrected. These locomotives are still currently running on the HSB and haul most of the traffic in the Harz Region – road number 99 236 too, which has been in continuous use for 65 years as of 2020.

Highlights:

  • Fall New Item 2020
  • True to the original coloring and lettering of epoch VI
  • Fully equipped driver's cab and opening doors
  • Enclosed lettering sheet with the replicas of the posters on the occasion of the special trips for the 65th birthday of the locomotive

One-time series.

Gauge G (Schmalspur) Era VI Locomotives

Impressions

In the Fifties, the German State Railroad purchased a small series of new construction locomotives to supplement the outdated motive power roster chiefly of the Harzquer Railroad – but also of other meter gauge railroads. These units were a further development of road numbers 99 221 to 223 delivered in the Thirties. With an output of 700 horsepower, these 60 metric ton and 12.5 meter / 40 foot 8 inch long locomotives fulfilled the requirements set for them after initial teething problems were corrected. These locomotives are still currently running on the HSB and haul most of the traffic in the Harz Region – road number 99 236 too, which has been in continuous use for 65 years as of 2020.

We present a model of the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways (HSB) narrow gauge steam locomotive, road number 99 236 as it currently looks in use. The paint and lettering are prototypical for Era VI. Two powerful Bühler motors with ball bearings drive all five of the wheel sets. The locomotive has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions, such as headlights that change over with the direction of travel, cab lighting, or separately controlled running gear lights. The locomotive has a whistle and bell activated by a reed switch. These sounds will also work in analog operation. The locomotive has a built-in smoke generator with steam exhaust synchronized to the wheels as well as cylinder steam. The locomotive has many separately applied details including a completely detailed cab as well as doors that can be opened. A sheet of lettering with reprints of the posters for special runs on the 65th anniversary of the locomotive is included. Length over the buffers 55 cm / 21-5/8".
