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). The trains delivered by Bombardier to the ÖBB in 2007 have proven to be worthwhile but many passengers bemoan the loss of the old coaches due to their more comfortable seats and better riding comfort. 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. The front ends of the ICE and Talent are very similar in looks, which is probably no accident, because an appealing appearance is always a good sales argument. 644 series diesel-electric railcars were delivered before the diesel-mecha-nical 643 series “Talents”. 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…

E73 H0 M4

electric locomotive EG1 of the Royal Bavarian Stat Railroad, aka E73

The two Bavarian EG 4 X 1/1 still existed after the First World War and had been taken over by the Deutsche Reichsbahn district management of Bavaria. After 1923 the complex designation was replaced by a simple EG 1 and after 1926 they were then allocated the E 73 series for the DRG. Both locomotives were always based in Freilassing, in addition to their regular route they were also used for shunting purposes in Salzburg. At more…

G 4/5 H0 M4

steam loco G 4/5 H of the Royal Bavarian State Railroad, aka DRG BR 56.8; type 2-8-0, 4 cylinders

It was the largest, most powerful and most modern German locomotive with this wheel arrangement. The last ones were taken our of service in 1947. Now the G 4/5 H is making its comeback as a Brawa H0 gauge model in two versions with fascinating details. High quality: chassis, wheels and rigging in die-cast zinc. Affectionate: details such as a fully functioning drive train, true-to-original back more…

V100 M4

The diesel locomotive V100 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) had been developed in the late 1950s to replace the Prussian steam locos BR 38.10-40, BR 55 and 78. The locos had 12 cylinder four stroke motors with 1100 HP of MAN, Mercedes-Benz or Maybach. A pair of those motors also worked in the famous V200. The DB found out that the motors were not strong enough for some service so the DB ordered a stronger version of the V100.10 (later numbered as BR 211) named V100.20 (later BR 212). The 212 had more…

G 7.1 M4

In 1950, the Deutsche Bundesbahn still had approx. 100 locos of the G71 in their inventory, of which about half were operational. In addition to railway depots (Bw) in the Ruhr area (including Duisburg, Essen, Hamm and Oberhausen), the Bw Minden and Kaiserslautern also had several operational machines in their inventories. They were mostly used for shunting and transfer service. Since there was a sufficient amount of newer and more powerful machines for these services, the final units of the more…
