Please note: This is a kit only. It includes the body, bogie sideframes, battery box (Because electric locos don't have diesel fuel tanks ;-)), detail parts (Vacuum hoses, horns), couplers and screws. It does not include a mechanism or pantographs. The modeller will need to source a Roco E10/E40/E41/BR110/BR112/BR140/BR141 locomotive as a donor for the mechanism and pantographs. The older style mechanism is required.

The first 6E1 Series 8 was delivered 1979, and the last was delivered in 1981. They differed from the Series 6-7 locomotives in that a large access doors were fitted on the sides, below the inner window on the roof access ladder side (The window position was also raised) and below the outer window on the other side

The spotting eras as modelled can be loosely defined as Mid and Late.

As delivered (mid), the locomotive pilots (NOT cow-catchers!) had four long vertical slots on each side of the coupler.

The division between mid and late is based on the deletion of the outer vertical slots on the pilots either side of the coupler and the addition of strengthening plates underneath the cab side windows and cab side doors. This occurred in the early 1990s, but has not been applied to all locomotives in the series.

The modification applied where a plate was welded over the slots from the inside of the pilots is not taken into consideration, as this modification seems to have been applied somewhat haphazardly applied over the years.

What our customers say...

First Impressions. The Models themselves .... Just received the pair of 6E Series 8 that I had ordered. The detailed quality of the model is mind blowing!!!!! It is comparable to the products offered by Athearn Genesis or Rocco/Brawa/Pico. While there is no other HO Scale Class 5E/6E available in the market that is in the same league, the level of detail make this a collectors piece. Order without fear. You can't go wrong no matter which version you want to model. I am still waiting for the delivery of the mechanism ( from another vendor) to arrive before I can post further details. Sales and Service. Ordering through PayPal was a breeze. I am also thrilled with the service and follow through that I have received with this order. Frank was very quick to respond on any questions that I had. The models were created and shipped out quickly. I am definitely looking forward to ordering more from SARModel
