LGB 70580 DB Wangerooge diesel - this is the HF 130C diesel, in DB red livery. The loco was supplied by LGB as part of a set, so it is unboxed. It in good condition but has seen some use, not extensively because it doesn't really fit the DR/OBB character of my line. So it is time for it to find a new home. Looking for £200, with either collection from Derbyshire or add £15 for UK postage.

Isn't it digital already? Should just need a sound decoder such as a Massoth S.

As this is the one from the starter set, I don't think so.... the "proper" Wangerooge one in the same livery but with the more accurate cab moulding with the extra windows, which was sold as a stand-alone item, does have a factory decoder - that's most likely the version you're thinking of.

Just Googled meself a query - these are referred to as Kof - but that is a type designation by DB, not anything to do with manufacture.

They are, indeed, Gmeinder diesels, similar to those used at Peenemunde and retrieved post war by the REs and operated at Longmoor Military Railway - the ex-Peneemunde locos being 750mm gauge as opposed to the 1000mm gauge on Wangerooge.

Another little bit of useless information :nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd:

I believe that the KoF designation refers to Kleine (small), Oel (oil fuel, ie: diesel) and the "F" denotes hydraulic transmission (fluid drive?) - in contrast, one designated just Ko is a similar small diesel with a mechanical transmission.
At least, that's how I understand it - someone more fluent in German and in loco designations may be able to confirm/deny/expand on that....?

That makes sense, because the reason that the REs had the Gmeinder diesels at Longmoor was to have experience of diesel hydraulics (as in hydraulic drive) :nod::nod::nod:

Interesting, my version is as the pic above and has an on-board LGB decoder. It all looks factory fitted, unless somebody has retrofitted it and knew what they were doing!
