Class 77 M4

Mit der im Jahr 2001 festgelegten Liberalisierung des internationalen Eisenbahngüterverkehrs benötigten die neu gegründeten Eisenbahnverkehrsunternehmen (EVU) Triebfahrzeuge, um die den staatlichen Bahnen abgerungenen Verkehre zu bewältigen. Die Beschaffung technisch hochentwickelter Neufahrzeuge kam aus Kostengründen oftmals nicht in Frage. Eine preisgünstige Lösung bot die amerikanische Electro-Motive Division (EMD) mit der bereits in Großbritannien erprobten Class 66 an. Die als JT 42 CWR more…

ÖBB Talent H0 M4

Electric Railcar ÖBB Talent BR 4024

The 140 km/h fast electric motor coaches of the Talent series also run in the suburban traffic of the greater Linz region (Austria).

In the meantime, ÖBB have responded to some points of criticism. For example, the noise of heating and air-conditioning systems more…

Talent 644 H0 M4

The various railcars Talent are often called the “regional ICE” because of the way they look.

They are designed for municipal railway services around Cologne and have 1,000 kW engine power (compared with the 643’s 570 kW). In more…
