Overview
The first time I met the V160 familie was the daily freight train that came through franeker (see Freighttrains in Franeker). Later on I saw the 218's in Arnhem where the trains from Amsterdam to Köln would change traction. The first model I bought was the Roco 215 (catno. 4155B) around 1984. Over time the collection grew. nohabs

Description: This particular model is special. The shell is from the first series (Roco 4155A), which didn't have flush windows etc. The other parts are from a later release (Roco 43417) which had a broken body shell. I moved the flush windows etc to the 'old' shell.
