Model Information: Model introduced in 2009.
  • 5-pole Motor, w. flywheel,
  • Rapido coupler pocket NEM 355,
  • All 4 axles powered,
  • White headlight (x3).

DCC Information: The model came in either DC (analog) variant or factory-equipped with a DCC decoder (no sound).
There is no decoder socket, so installing a decoder in a DC version is possible but requires a wired decoder and modifications of the PCB (printed circuit board). We call it friendly as it does not require modification of others parts of the model.
See on for decoder installation (in German).

Prototype History:
The DR V60 is a 650 hp (478 kW) 4-axle Diesel-Hydraulic shunting locomotive built for the Deutschen Reichsbahn (former Eastern Germany state railway company) between 1959 and 1982 by Lokomotivbau Karl Marx (LKM) Babelsberg and Lokomotivbau Elektrotechnische Werke (LEW) Hans Beimler Hennigsdorf. A total of 2256 V60 locomotives were built, out of which 188 by LKM Babelsberg until 1964 and the rest by LEW Hennigsdorf until 1982.
In 1970, the series was classified as Baureihe BR 106 and then BR 105 when all the numbers for BR 106 were exhausted.
After reunification of Germany, the BR 105 were re-classified as BR 345, and BR 106 as BR 346.
In the 1990's some V60 were re-motorized and were re-classified BR 344.

The DR V60 must not be confused with its namesake DB V60 (later BR 360) built approximately at the same period by the Deutschen Bundesbahn (Western Germany).

Road Name History:
The Bern-Lotschberg-Simplon railway (BLS), known between 1997 and 2006 as the BLS Lotschbergbahn, was a Swiss railway company. In 2006 the company merged with Regionalverkehr Mittelland AG to form a new company called BLS AG..

The Bern-Lotschberg-Simplon railway was the largest standard gauge network on the Swiss Railway system apart from the Swiss Federal Railways. The railway had not been built at the time that the Federal government took control of the five big Swiss standard gauge railway companies in 1902 and so it led a separate existence, being considered the largest of the Swiss "private" railways, although the majority of its capital was owned by the cantonal government of Bern, with the Confederation holding about one fifth.
