Image description

The image shows a model of locomotive viewed from its frontage, respectively, is illustrated the facade of the motor wagon, responsible for the propulsion with the help of the diesel engine of the other cargo wagons.

The locomotive, viewed from the front, is rendered like a square, full in relief.

The buffer, a piece of the coupling system, located in the lower bar of the facade, with the role of keeping a certain distance between the folded wagons and cushioning the shocks between them while moving, is represented as two small and blank circles, located below, one to the left and another to the right.

Under the two coupling pads is the locomotive pilot or cow plow, a device called by the Americans “cow catcher”, invented by them in order to push the animals, especially cattle, off the track, when they blocked the road.

The pilot is also used to remove any obstacles on the rails that prevent the train from moving on, be it rocks, animals, snow or other objects.

The pilot is like a shield made of two hard metal plates, joined in the center, on a front edge, at the base of the locomotive facade, just above the rails, and is marked by a horizontal rectangle, filled with dotted texture.

The diesel engine is framed by a metal box covered by the car body, is represented by a central square, filled with texture of horizontal and parallel lines, and is located in front of the driver’s cab.

At the top, higher than the front engine box, is the driver’s cab, located further back, which has two windows, on the left and right edge, whose windows are highlighted by a large and blank rectangle.

A man is standing in the right bottom corner, on a concrete platform marked embossed, thus positioned to facilitate the comparison of the dimensions of the locomotive to the height of an adult.
