News 2021.10 - KSW Vienna

The "first" real KSW!

Just before the end of the war, Vienna received 30 KSW, the so-called Heidelberger. They could not be put into operation until 1945, but initially retained their "protective coating". The current small series now shows one of the first KSW in the typical Viennese red and white color scheme from around 1949.

KSW-WLR-20-M

The models are based on the KSW model from Stängl Modellbahnen, which LH has equipped with new clear and finely printed windows, interior fittings and a number of fine, small details. All cars except 23, 25 and 27 were put into operation in a sandy brown colour. The repainting to red and white took place from 1949 to 1950.

The car with the number 20 was documented at the beginning of its red-and-white career without a number box on the roof. The target shield box was still attached to the right of a ventilation grille above the windshield. The line was indicated on the target sign.
On the front side the car number was written with large golden shadow numbers, on the side the more modern Viennese coat of arms (white cross on a red background) and a small golden shadow number were written on it. The cars were mainly used on lines 52, 58 and 59.

The models of the first KSW represent the continuation of the KSW series. As with the models of the Munich KSW and the now out of print Stuttgart KSW, new, fine accessories and individual decals were designed to carry out a little model maintenance.
Unfortunately not yet ready for series production, but already in preparation, is a lighting kit that can be easily retrofitted, especially for digital drivers. More of this in a few weeks ...
