Elektrická lokomotiva modelové železnice v měřítku HO pro železniční modeláře ve špičkové kvalitě - ROCO 73267 Österreichische Bundesbahnen #1116 225 HO Heute Für Morgen Für Uns Taurus Electric Locomotive DCC & Sound .

A matching Railjet train can be formed with the items 74084 and 74087.

The model is equipped with a four-pole electric coupling on one side. For push-pull train operation the current draw between the locomotive and the control cab coach of the Roco Railjet can be switched via micro-switches. This is only possible if the locomotive has an electric coupling.

■ With switchable high beam and individually switchable headlights or tail lights. ■ Z21-Drivers cab available. ■ Licensed model of the ÖBB .

The electric class 1116 “Taurus” Railjet locomotive is a very impressive model with an exceptional running performance. The model has extensive detail, comes in a beautiful livery, includes sprung pantographs, is equipped with a 5 pole motor with flywheel and includes white and red LED headlights that coordinate with the direction of travel. This model would make a nice addition to any collection.

The EuroSprinter family of electric locomotives is a modular concept of locomotives for the European market built by Siemens Mobility. The internal Siemens product name is ES 64, with ES for EuroSprinter and the number 64 indicating the 6,400 kW power at rail.

Additional information is given in the name on the usage (U as universal, P as prototype and F as freight) and on the number of electric power systems supported (e. g. 2 as two types, 4 as all four systems commonly used in Europe).

Based on the Eurosprinter concept the ES 64 U was developed as a universal electric locomotive with a top speed of 230 km/h (140 mph). The series ES 64 U is only capable of operating on the 15 kV 16.7 Hz AC supply. It is in service in Austria with ÖBB as Class 1016. Unlike the F series, all U series are equipped with quill drive instead, thus reducing the track forces. The ÖBB assigned the protected name Taurus to Class 1016 (and later to the Classes 1116 and 1216); since then all ES 64 U+ series are widely known as Taurus locos.

The ES 64 U2 can also operate on 25 kV 50 Hz AC. It is operated by ÖBB as Class 1116, by Deutsche Bahn AG as Class 182 and as well as by MÁV as Class 470 and as a hire locomotive from Dispolok. The Hungarian-Austrian company GySEV (Győr-Sopron-Ebenfurth Railway Corp) operates these units as Class 1047.

All four European electric systems can be used by the ES 64 U4. Its electric components are mostly identical to those of ES 64 F4. The four-system series (with the 1500 V capability disabled within the software) are currently used in Austria by ÖBB and the private operator Rail Traction Service as Class 1216, in Slovenia by Slovenske železnice (SŽ) as Class 541 and in Poland by PKP Intercity (PKP IC) as Class EU44 "Husarz". In Italy RFI assigns it the classification E 190. Taurus locomotives have become notable for the musical-sounding notes, said to resemble an alto saxophone, produced when a train is moving off. The sound comes from the traction converters (German: Stromrichter). Driver s desk controls of ES 64 U2 of the ÖBB.

A version of the ES 64 U4 was delivered to the Vogtlandbahn of Germany with the designation Class 183. Although the body is the same as any other ES 64 U4 locomotive, it is dual supply and can only operate on the German 15 kV 16.7 Hz AC and the Czech 25 kV 50 Hz AC systems. Even though these locomotives are only equipped to operate under AC power supplies like the DB Class 182, they received a new class designation because they meet the revised EU Driver Protection Standards which required significant structural changes: these include the entrance doors, from one on each side nearer to the middle of the locomotive to two on each side directly into the locomotive cab.

On 2 September 2006 the locomotive 1216 025-5 (prior to delivery to ÖBB) set a new world record for conventional electric locomotives, when, during the trials near Nürnberg, it reached a top speed of 357 km/h (222 mph). The locomotive was not modified for the record. Since then, this type has become the fastest locomotive in the world.

The “Taurus” family of electric Locomotives is one of the most successfully built locomotives, initially developed by Siemens and Adtrans. Siemen s started developing a new powerful and universal locomotive with the Austrian state railways ÖBB. Designed by Porsche, the Taurus was created with a modular design and a dynamic new look. The Austrian ÖBB railroads ordered the first batch of Siemens Taurus Eurosprinter ES64U2 locomotives exclusively for its national traffic. These locomotives were classified as the first generation, Class1016. The second generation Taurus Class 1116 was soon developed with a running capacity of 25 kV 50Hz. The incredible new modern electric “Taurus” locomotives are currently used in many European countries including Germany, Hungarian, Slovakia and Slovenia. The Electric locomotive class 1216 Taurus World Record Locomotive set a new world record - 357 km/h on September 02, 2006.
