The class I M locomotives of the Saxon State Railways were taken over by the German State Railroad (DR) as road numbers 99 161 to 99 163. The sheathing on the locomotives was removed as early as the Twenties for maintenance reasons. Only the sheathing on the trucks was kept. These locomotives were also given the typical black/red paint scheme of the steam locomotives. Road number 99 163 was lost in World War II. The other two were still in use in Reichenbach on the DR until 1962. In the last years of operation, they were equipped with air brakes and a generator for the likewise new electric lighting. Road number 99 161 was scrapped after the end of operations on the roller carrier line, while road number 99 162 was restored to its original condition with sheathing. This locomotive is still present as a museum piece in the Museum Station in Oberheinsdorf – unfortunately not operational. There is also a small exhibition of the roller carrier railroad there and it is put on display for special occasions. This is a model of the German State Railroad (DR) steam locomotive, road number 99 161. It is a finely detailed model featuring heavy metal construction with many separately applied details. Two powerful motors drive the locomotive and all driving wheelsets are driven by side rods. The doors to the cabs, to the walk-around, at the ends of the sheathing, and the smoke box door can be opened. The hatches on the trucks can be opened. The paint scheme and lettering are prototypical for Era III, or as the locomotive looked in the Fifties and Sixties in use on the Reichenbach Roller Carrier Line. The locomotive has an mfx/DCC sound decoder with many light and sound functions such as headlights, cab lighting, running sounds, a whistle and a bell that can be activated by reed switches, as well as much more. The running sounds will also work in analog operation. The locomotive has built-in smoke units with steam exhaust synchronized with the wheels as well as cylinder steam and steam exhaust at the whistle, when the latter is activated. Length over the buffers 47 cm / 18-1/2.
Roller carriers to go with this locomotive are available under item number 48180.
