Inter-Zone train D 439 Cologne – Hamburg – Lübeck – Rostock BR 132 DR with three express train cars of the DB BDm and Bm era IV.

DC model: Item no: 58114

AC model: Item no: 58214

The separation of Germany into occupation zones and the foundation of the FRG and GDR separated many of the historically grown traffic routes between east and west. The Inter-Zone train can be considered as a symbol for the connection through the Iron Courtain. Often times, the large diesel locomotives of the series 132 were used as traction vehicles for these trains. For this purpose, they were equipped with Siemens I 60 magnets on the bogies. The cars for the trains were provided by both railway companies. Secure yourself this special souvenir!


I hereby register for the “Open House Day” at the PIKO Spielwaren GmbH in Sonneberg.


For guests arriving by train, PIKO offers free bus shuttle service from the Sonneberg train station to the PIKO site and back.
