Hooray! LGB is (finally) embracing social media and regularly sharing content on their Facebook page. Their latest post features some nice pictures of the new DB class V 220 diesel locomotive (Art.No. 23945).
After the class V 200 diesel locomotives were removed from express train service at the end of the Sixties, units designated from 1968 on as the class 220 also pulled freight trains. This model reproduces Road Number 220 085-5 in the original Era IV paint and lettering scheme. The locomotive is equipped with 2 powerful motors, a decoder, sound, and two pulsing smoke generators that reproduce typical exhaust of the prototype. Two general-purpose sockets, traction tires, and many other details are included. Length over the buffers 67 cm / 26-3/8″.
The V 220 is now available for € 999,99 (MSRP).
