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.
In 1965 the polish Pafawag built English Electric design Class 83 in license as classified by the Polish State Railway (PKP) as EU07. Between 1965 and 1994 total 489 samples devided into two externally slightly different series left the factory. The four motor four axle locos (traction motor type EE541) deliver 2080 kW and reach a maximum speed of 125 km/h (with different gearing 140 km/h). Some locos are still in use at PKP.
Swiss Rhetian Railway (RhB) received six samples of four axle electric railcar ABe 4/4 III. The railcars develop 1016 kW and reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h. For traction of longer trains the Abe 4/4 III can operate with older ABe 4/4 II or dual mode locos Gem 4/4.
Between 1963 and 1992 Polish manufacturer Fablok built 1822 samples of hood style diesel electric freight loco SM 42. Additional 268 units (SP42) were ordered with steam heating boiler for passenger train service. The eight cylinder prime mover develops 800 HP and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h.
In 1962 Swiss Rhetian Railway ordered two diesel electric shunting locomotives Tm 2/2 at Raco/SLM. In 1990 the locos received new Cummins 4BT 3.9 84 HP prime movers and RhB re-numbered them 19 and 20.
For traction of trains for construction areas Swiss Rhetian Railway (RhB) ordered two diesel electric Gmf 4/4 242 and 243 at German manufacturer Kaelble-Gmeinder. The four axle locos are driven by a Caterpillar 12 cylinder prime mover 3412 DI-TA and reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h.
Since nearly 50 years Swiss narrow gauged Rhaetian Railway (RhB) uses their four axle electric railcars ABe 4/4 II. Four traction motors deliver 940 HP and enables the railcars to reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h. Four of the nine cars are still in use, two of them can be seen daily with nearly any kind of train.
For contemporary commuter and branch line passenger service DB ordered 30 samples of diesel mechanic rail cars Alstom-LHB Lint 27 in 1999. The tognum six cylinder engine delivers 428 HP and reaches a maximum speed of 120 km/h.
