60 years on tracks!

29.06.2020

60 years old and not a bit tired.


In 2020 ROCO celebrates a milestone birthday and the matching art locomotive should not be missing, either.

60 years of ROCO means six decades of innovation and mechanisation on a small scale, but in proper style.
Gudrun Geiblinger takes up the developments and uses many modern elements for her design, such as a circuit board.

Of course, the trademark par excellence shall not be missing: The well-known ROCO logo in the transformation from past to present.

A model (Ref.: 70485, 70486, 78486) that cannot be missing in any collection and is only released once in this anniversary year.

The big original locomotive operates in cooperation with the ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) and transports passenger trains as well as freight trains, in Austria and in neighbouring countries.




The finishing touch!

In just a few weeks, the models of our "60 years" Taurus will roll onto the H0 tracks. After the roll-out of the original locomotive, the final print designs for the scale model are now being prepared.

The final print designs for the model are currently being prepared. As the adhesive foils used for the large original often differ in nuances from the colors indicated, color samples are used for comparison. Of course, this is done in direct comparison with the large locomotive, only in this way color equality can be ensured later in the small model. Even the creation of all inscriptions is based on model photos. A quite extensive work, which is necessary for a perfect model conversion.


For all those who would like to own our anniversary locomotive in scale model, we suggest to be quick. The model will be produced in a one-time edition, and only in this anniversary year.

60 years photo competition!
