Here's a review of my models of the SNCF BB 26000 from Piko!
Piko had its origins as a state-owned enterprise of the communist government in the old East Germany back in 1949! Of course, those days are long gone, and I'm glad to say Piko quality is really outstanding!
BB 26000 - commonly known in France as the "Sybic". That fancy sounding name is really just a shortened version of one of this locomotives key features "Synchronous Bicurrent".
broken nose' cousins, it has a definite edge to it and now looks almost classic against more modern Traxx and Taurus electrics.
