The six samples of 2-4-2 locos of BR 71 were ordered by Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG in 1934 to replace railcars in light passenger service. The locos developed 570 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. DB scrapped its remaining units in 1956.
For tourist travel the DRG ordered in 1935 two electric four axle railcars numbered elT 1998 (later numbered ET 91 01) and elT 1999. Most of its electrical equipment the railcars shared with older ET 25. After a change of gearing the railcars reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h (before 120 km/h). One of the two cars survived Second World War and had come to DB. Till the 1990s DB used the railcar (491 001) for tourist travels. After a crash in 1995 DB did not repair the car but gave it to a more…
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) received 64 samples of 2-axle diesel railcar VT 135 061-064, 067-076 and 083-132. After WW II DB renumbered them for VT 70.9, DR for BR 186. The 6 cylinder diesel prime mover enabled the railcar to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h.
For shunting service British Rail (BR) received 996 samples of diesel electric Class 08. The six cylinder diesel motor developed 350 hp at 900 rpm and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 32 km/h.
In 1990 four axle shunting locomotive HLD 77 debuted at Belgian State Railway SNCB. The loco bases on G1205 class of German MaK. The Belgian prime mover diesel motor 6DZC-1000-144A develops 1150 kW and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. SNCB uses the locos for heavy yard service and for traction of freight trains.
In 1976 German Duesseldorfer Waggonfabrik AG (Duewag) presented the six axle electric street railcar M6/N6. The two motor car has been designed also to operate in subway like tunnels. The M6 delivers 300 kW and reaches a maximum speed of 70 km/h.
Between 1965 and 1974 Belgian State Railway SNCB ordered 95 samples of tree axle side rod switchers Reeks 73. The ABC six cylinder traction motors T695 SA deliver 550 kW and enable the loco to reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h.
In 1926 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) received nine diesel mechanic rail cars for passenger service. The side rod equipped railcars developed 175 HP and reached a maximum speed of 65 km/h. please note: another 5 airhorns are selectable via CV48)
For traction of heavy train at Gotthard mountain Swiss State Railways SBB received three samples of 2-8-4-4-8-2 electric locos Ae 8/14 between 1931 an 1939. The giants developed around 11.100 HP and reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h.
In Czechoslovakia two different tensions (3 kV and 25 kV) were used by State Railway ČSD. For easier handling of passenger trains between Praha and Bratislava ČSD ordered 20 samples of 160 km/h electrics ES 499.0. 18 locos, renumbered for ŽSR/ZSSK class 350, are still in service in Slovakia.
