Filigree made, very detailed and fully functional pantograph. Very convincing and relief engraving of brake equipment, sandboxes, small parts and parts of the crew.

According to the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRG) classification, the E 69 series consisted of five, largely analogous electric locomotives, which became part of the DRG after the nationalization on August 1, 1938 of a suburban railway, formerly owned by the joint-stock company Lokalbahn Aktien-Gesellschaft (LAG), München,
All five locomotives were purchased by the LAG and used on the Ammergaubahn route (Ammergaubahn) from Murnau to Oberammergau . This line was first electrified in 1904 with a single-phase 5.5 kV alternating current with a frequency of 16 Hz. It was later transferred to 5 kV 16 2/3 Hz due to the simpler conversion from the public 50 Hz network. As part of the LAG, all five electric locomotives, in addition to the series number, also had their names, which in 1938, already in the structure of Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRG), were banned. In 1954/55 Deutsche Bundesbahn / DB / was already re-equipped and adapted to the traction current system with a voltage of 15 kV 16 2/3 Hz. In 1968, the E 69 series was changed to E169.
