FLEISCHMANN 739490 – Electric locomotive class 1020, ÖBB

Electric locomotive class 1020 of the Austrian Federal Railways.

■ Digitally switchable light and sound functions
■ Model in traffic red livery with computer number

Forty-four of the DRG class E 94 built from 1940 on remained in Austria after the Second World War and received the new designation 1020.01–44 in 1954. In the same year, the locomotive factory in Floridsdorf delivered three more machines using existing parts.

From 1967 on, except for the youngest three, all locomotives underwent an extensive overhaul and received a new look. They then differed significantly from the German sister machines without losing their unique character.

The robust 118.5 t weighty and 90 km/h fast locomotives were initially used to haul all types of trains. However, after a while, they mostly operated on steep inclines as pull or helper engines.
