The model 83019 is a heavy diesel locomotive of class 216 in a blue colour with a grey roof from era V. The model is released as a one-off series in 1993 in the context of the establishment of the European Union in 1993 and is released by the toy chain Idee + Spiel in a limited edition of 4000 pieces. The model is printed with the logos of 13 European railway companies. The model is analogue and is in possession of an electrical relay for switching the direction of travel.

The model is 18.2 cm long and has Relex-couplings (RK).

The first V160 (prototype) was built by the Krupp company and was delivered to the DB in 1960. This had the number V160 001 and had a rounded frontal nose. A few more followed this initial series (From V160 002 to 009) all of which were given the nickname "Lollo", - named after the Italian film star Gina Lollobrigida. The series locomotives were deployed in passenger and freight trains on all non electrified lines of the DB. The first of the Series V160 (V160 010) with different front was delivered in 1963, thus giving the V160 a new look. These locomotives achieved a top speed of 120 kmh. The earlier series of these locomotives were retired from service between 1978 and 1984. The last of the BR 216 locomotives of the DB were retired from service in 2004.
