    The steam locomotives of class 23 were passenger train locomotives, but also used as light express trains. From 1950 to 1959 the Deutsche Bundesbahn put 105 locomotives of class 23 into operation.

    The Class 23 was newly-designed with a high thermodynamic efficiency. The mechanical design was state of the technology of the 1950th.. Boilers frames and tenders were completely welded and there exists a central lubrication of the least accessible bearings. Also the ergonomics were improved for the operating personnel. For example the floor tile in the driver´s cabin was spring mounted and heatable.

    Locomotive number 23 105 was the last steam engine put into operation by the Deutsche Bundesbahn. Aftermath the more economic diesel and electric locomotives were aquired.

    HMV Lasercut Sets are especially designed for a particular HMV model as an additional but optional detail set. The laser cut parts replace parts of the original kit with more filigree and already cut out versions. Sometimes additional parts are included as well. Building your model with a Lasercut Set is easier and more detailed at the same time. But the Lasercut Set is not necessarily needed to build the model.

    The material we use is high quality and already coloured paper. Thus it is not necessary to paint the laser cut parts. We recommend though to colour white parts before using them, as during the laser process burn marks might occur.
