Wiking (#059003) 1/87 (HO) Scale
DB - Mercedes-Benz L 3500 Culemeyer Wagon-Carrying Road Train
A team can hardly look more contemporary. Thanks to the new heavy-duty platform , the Langhauber from Mercedes-Benz demonstrates its 1:87 scale traction. WIKING freshened up the typical team, which found favor with model railroaders early on, with the L 3500 tractor. It's hard to believe that the attached road scooters have been rolling into the WIKING range since the 1950s. Road scooters were used for rail-road traffic, in which the Deutsche Bundesbahn transported wagons complete with cargo to those customers who did not have a train track at the company's location. In the 1970s, this combined transport solution found less and less demand, so that the road scooters largely disappeared from service.
