"What if?" is a frequently asked question posed by model builders.
This is not surprising because that's how new creative ideas can flourish and be developed and contribute to innovative games.
So what if the German Deutsche Bundesbahn had already acquired one of the two pre-series 23 locomotives earlier?
The advantages of the locomotive would have been available to the DB as well.
The locomotives would have been perfect to haul express trains, as they were particularly fast when accelerating.
Our model series 23 002 was operating for the German Federal Railways around 1952 and was very much appreciated by the West German locomotive staff.
No wonder that the staff of the locomotive depot didn't miss the chance to mount exquisite boiler bands on the locomotive.
