The BR232 is part of the DR 130 family of locomotives. They were produced in the Soviet Union in Luhansk, Ukraine from the 1970s onwards, and were imported into the GDR. After the reunification of Germany the Deutsche Bahn (DBAG) inherited them and continue to make use of them mainly as heavy freight locomotives. The development of the DBAG Class 232 (DR Class 132) was spurred by Voroshilovgrad Locomotive Works' new capability to provide locomotives with electric heating. The DBAG Class 232 are still in service after German reunification and have taken over many freight services throughout Germany.
The PIKO models of the 132 series of the DR and 232 comes with finely detailed paintwork and printing, free-standing handlebars, a die-cast zinc frame, and a powerful five-pole motor, which, in combination with two balanced flywheels, guarantees balanced running behaviour.
The lighting is by LEDs. The cab lighting and the tail light can be switched digitally with a PluX22 decoder. The model has two traction tires, which sit diagonally on the inner axles of the two bogies, and electrical power is drawn from all wheels.
