The design of the front end of the BR 103 was optimized aerodynamically. Due to this fact there was restricted space in the driver's cab which caused the locomotive staff to complain about the design. Therefore, the space of the drivers cabs with the company number 103 216-8 was enlarged and the newly gained space was used among other things for more comfortable seats.
This model is not a toy. Not suitable for children under 14 years!
