Description
A Gauge 1 scale electric locomotive model painted in beige and red. The model is a Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) 03 Class Electric Locomotive. The 03s (four in total) were prototypes built in the mid 1960s, the design later became known as the E103 Class. Built by numerous manufacturers such as AEG, Brown Boveri & Cie, Henschel, Krauss-Maffei, Krupp and Siemens AG, the 103s became widely used by DB on the InterCity Network due to their high speed capability. Phasing out began in the 1990s but a small number of 103s are still used by DB. The model is housed in a cardboard box along with an MDF board for display.

History and use
The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.

The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
