Model: O gauge DC. Decoder with USP and energy storage as well as numerous functions and sound already integrated, prototypical locomotive-tender spacing, original sound, steam generator. The locomotive has a minimum radius of 914 mm, spring buffers, metal chassis. Noiseless motor control enables smooth, jerk-free running and particularly good slow running characteristics. The speed of the motor is determined by an angle magnetic sensor mounted on the motor axle. On both sides of the locomotive there is an automatic bilge coupling with close coupling baffle, which can be remote controlled in digital mode. Alternatively the original coupling hook can be used. The locomotive has constantly bright headlights at the front and rear, the lamps are equipped with maintenance-free LEDs, the light change is dependent on the direction of travel. In digital mode, the front and rear headlights can be switched on and off separately, the brightness can be adjusted separately from other lights. The driver's cab lighting can be switched on and off separately from the tip light, the brightness can be set separately from other lighting. Shunting reduces the speed of the locomotive by about half, shunting movements can thus be carried out with particular sensitivity; shunting light means that both the front and rear (white) lamps are switched on regardless of the direction of travel.

Prototype: The passenger train locomotive introduced as the Prussian P8 of class 35.17 was later changed to the 38.10-40 and is the prototype for the gauge 0 model. After supercharged steam engines had already proven to be maintenance-friendly and powerful in the G 8, the P 8 with its economical supercharged steam twin engine was a design milestone in the construction of passenger train locomotives. With a wheelbase (including tender 2'2'T 21.5) of less than 16 meters, the P 8 also fitted on small turntables. In contrast to its predecessor, the P 6, the P 8 ran at 100 km/h forward and 50 km/h backwards, and in later reversible train service with DB with tub tender and closed cab, it even ran 85 km/h backwards.
Lenz has been active in the field of model railways for over 30 years. Many of the technologies for model railway control that are taken for granted today are developments from the house of Lenz. The so-called DCC format for the digital control of model railways of all sizes is used worldwide and is thus the most widely used control system of all, declared a standard by the NMRA in 1993.

But even before the development of this digital control system, Lenz had already set milestones for the model railway enthusiast, for example with the "REPA Lok-Aus" and the legendary "Teichmann controller". Lenz is constantly working on making the occupation with model railways more interesting, more varied, but also easier: USP ensures uninterrupted data transmission into the decoder even when power is interrupted from the track, ABC ensures pinpoint stops in front of signals, RailCom delivers information from the locomotive back to the digital system.

Lenz's entry into 0 gauge has not only been well received by "veteran" zero gauge enthusiasts, but has also inspired numerous model railway enthusiasts to enter/with this great gauge. Lenz is continuously expanding its programme here as well, but still attaches great importance to the greatest possible faithfulness to the prototype, exceptional technology and high quality standards.
