The "Köf 6003" diesel loco is another interesting piece of motive power from the Deutsche Reichsbahn's Rügenschen Kleinbahnen. Naturally, it's perfect for switching. For example, it can marshal a passenger train of Rügen passenger cars (35353, 35354). But it's also realistic to use the loco to haul the freight cars of a work train. This beautiful LGB model has a completely furnished cab, which is illuminated to show off the detailed interior. Further equipment includes opening doors and functional lighting. For added pulling power, the model includes a traction tire.
21310 - DB Metropolitan Electric Loco, 101 131-1
The Deutsche Bahn's "101" series locos are among its most modern, and loco number 131 (along with a sister loco) were specially equipped for use on the "Metropolitan," a special train for business travelers on the Hamburg-Cologne line. In a variation from the DB norm, this loco received a special silver paint scheme and logo developed for this service. The combination makes it one of the most elegant of today's locomotives.

21470 - SBB Brünig HG 3/3 Rack Steam Loco, 1068
Between 1910 and 1926, the Swiss Locomotive & Machine Works (SLM) built 17 gear-driven rack steam locomotives for the Brünigbahn.

Together with the matching LGB wagons (31330 and 41330), you can now model a complete SBB narrow-gauge passenger train on your LGB layout.

21590 - DB Wangerooge Diesel Loco, 399 101-5
Cars are barred from the vacation island of Wangerooge on the north German coast, and that has guaranteed the existence of the island's narrow-gauge railroad. The line employs former military field railway "HF 130C" diesel locos, and to keep these aged locomotives in operation, they have been modernized. As part of that upgrade, they received new cabs, giving them a more modern look and giving the crew a more pleasant working environment. These Deutsche Bahn "399" series locos are much loved by the island's visitors, and this LGB model is an authentic replica of Number 399 101-5, including the updated cab.

The smaller hood covers a baggage compartment, reducing the need for a baggage car in the consist. This LGB model recreates 2091.02 in its original green livery and is equipped with twin Bühler motors for outstanding traction power. The impressive digital sound system includes starting, driving and braking sounds. Additional sounds can be triggered by remote control with the LGB Multi-Train System.

Introduced in 1973, this series of locos is still in use today on the Rhätische Bahn, and to make sure these 30-year-old machines can still fulfill their key transportation tasks, they have been extensively upgraded. Outwardly, the most obvious change is the move from round to rectangular headlights, and this LGB model reproduces that change and the authentic current livery of Number 618.

The twin cabs and passageways are detailed and decorated.
