Model: HO gauge DC. Electric locomotive E 52 03 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. Era III version in Bottle Green livery. Finely detailed model with many separately attached plug-in parts.

Prototype: The DRG procured a heavy electric locomotive to transport long passenger trains on the electrified Bavarian main lines. From numerous designs, a decision was made in favor of a 2'BB2' locomotive, which was to have the same engines as the freight locomotive BR E 91, which was also planned. With this new design, the previous design of electric locomotives with a slow-running large engine was abandoned and a decision was made for four smaller electric motors. Each engine group has two engines. A countershaft drives a jackshaft via inclined connecting rods, which is coupled to two driving axles by means of coupling rods. The locomotive, which at 140 t is one of the heaviest electric locomotives ever built in Germany, had an output of 2,200 kW and a top speed of 90 km/h put into operation as type EP 5 with the numbers 21 501-535. In 1927 they were given the designation E 52 01-35. The 29 units that remained with the Bundesbahn after the war were designated as BR 152 from 1968. In February 1973, DB retired road number 152 014, the last representative of this series.
Variations of this product
Founded in 1960 as a manufacturer of plastic products (sand buckets, miniature military vehicles), the company is now one of the world's leading providers of model railways as an innovation leader. The first locomotives were produced in 1976. The models were characterized by precision and authenticity right from the start and established the company's reputation for quality early on. In addition, Roco has always thought further about model railways and stimulated the industry with innovations. Over the decades, the wagons that are not shortened in length, the more prototypical tracks with less high rail profiles or the "snag-free" close couplings should be mentioned. A milestone for the future is the cutting-edge Z21 control system, which for the first time combines the virtual and real game worlds and thus raises the play value of model railways to a completely new level. Company headquarters are in Bergheim/Salzburg. Roco has a global presence and, via Modelleisenbahn München GmbH, is a company of Modelleisenbahn Holding GmbH, which also includes the German quality manufacturer Fleischmann. Roco relies on valuable and manual work. This is the only way to create the detailed, highly reliable and functional miniatures. Comprehensive quality management with internal and external quality assurance measures ensures that Roco locomotive and wagon owners receive the best quality and can enjoy their models for a long time. Here, too, Roco is a pioneer. The Roco factory in Arad was the first factory in the model railway industry to be certified according to ISO 9001 by the German DQS GmbH.
