The PKP ET21 is a name for a Polish electric freight locomotive and was produced between years 1957 to 1971 in Pafawag. It was the first post-war Polish electric locomotive, designed in 1955. Besides being delivered for PKP, ET21 locomotives were delivered to the mining industry, where they are used up to now.
The locomotive is equipped with six LKb-635 (though some sources give LKa-635) engines which are mounted on the bogies with a tram system. A Co'Co' type of the locomotive means it is equipped with two bogies, each of them having three axles with separate propulsion for each wheel set. The body and chassis are completely welded construction with crew compartments on both ends. It contains two machine compartments and one high voltage compartment. Moving between crew cabins is enabled by 570mm wide corridor running along the box wall. The machine compartments are reached through the doors in the back walls of crew compartments.
The model is powered by a five-pole PIKO motor with two flywheels. The retrofitting of a digital decoder or a vehicle sound can be easily accomplished thanks to the PluX22 interface and the appropriate installation space. Also notable is of course the LED technology, which changes with the direction of travel in the colors red and white.
A PIKO SmartDecoder 4.1 with the appropriate vehicle sound and mfx functionality is installed ex works.
