Fleischmann N 739492 Electric locomotive 1020.027-7 ÖBB era V DCC 2023 New Item
Electric locomotive 1020.027 belonging to the Austrian Federal Railways. ■ In fir green colouring with decorative stripes ■ Digitally switchable light and sound functions After the end of the war, 44 locomotives from the DRG class E 94 were located in Austria. In 1952, the Austrian Federal Railways ordered three more locomotives. The class designation was changed from E 94 to class 1020 in 1954. The class 1020 was used for more than five decades in goods train and ramp service in almost all of Austria. The colours of the 1020 series were altered over time from fir green to blood orange, and finally to traffic red. Not all locomotives were affected by these changes, however. After the last of the three fir green reproduction locomotives ceased to operate in 1985, there were no more green 1020s put into service. It was not until 1990 that the 1020 042 was painted in fir green, and from then on was also available for nostalgic purposes (including as a train locomotive for the Nostalgia Orient Express). About a year later, 1020 047 was also painted fir green. In addition, two green trim lines were applied to the locomotive body and one trim line to each of the front ends. In contrast to the 1020 042, the 1020 027 still featured Austrian Federal Railway logos, which were later removed.
