The BR 45 was the strongest German steam locomotive. It was developed by Hentschel in 1936 and 1937. Two machines were built at first. An additional 26 followed in 1940. In 1968, the BR 45 was taken out of scheduled service. Today, one machine is located in the Traffic Museum in Nürnberg.
We built our model in DRG version with Wagner smoke deflectors and in DB version with Witte smoke deflectors.
A model of this series was the 1,000th locomotive made by Bockholt.
