The 37050 locomotive was produced in a one-time series only for Insider members in 2004
 
The World Record Steam Locomotive. The DRG covered only a small, exclusive market segment for long distance passenger service with the express passenger service provided by the diesel powered rail car trains. Locomotive-hauled trains continued to form the backbone of passenger service. They offered far more capacity, more room, comfort, and service, for example: dining and sleeping cars. And yet more speed was required for these trains too. The locomotive builders developed suggestions for a steam locomotive that was intended have a speed of 175 km/h or 109 mph. The DRG decided on a three-cylinder locomotive with a 4-6-4 wheel arrangement and with coal firing. Its dimensions were immense: The driving wheels had a diameter of 2.30 meters or 90-9/16 inches, the boiler tubes were 7 meters or 275-9/16 inches long, and the power output reached 2,360 pounds per square inch. Between Hamburg and Berlin the 05 002 surpassed the world speed record for steam locomotives with 200.4 km/h or 125.25 mph in a test run on May 11, 1936, record that still stands today. The fact that t his value was never surpassed proves the limits of this technology. The immense moving masses of cylinders, drive rods and side rods did not permit higher speeds. The fireman was hard pressed to keep the boiler steamed up. The two units built in 1935 have a very futuristic look with their red streamlining. As a status symbol of the DRG, they were used in express passenger service and bore for a while the Olympic rings.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire this unique futuristic looking locomotive. The model is in excellent+ condition, no signs of wear. Tested on tracks, works perfectly. The original package and all printed materials included.

Good luck!
