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.
The Prussian State Railway KPEV developed the 2-8-2 tender locos T14 and T14.1 (later BR 93.0-4 and 93.5-12) for regional passenger and freight service. The locos developed 1000 HP and reached a maximum speed of 65 and 70 km/h. The last locos quitted service at the German State Railways DB and DR in the late 1960s.
Prussian T16.1 had been one of the most important steam locomotives for short freight and heavy switching duty. The two cylinder loco delivered 1070 HP and reached a maximum speed of 60 km/h. Some locos received a Riggenbach-brake for the use on very steep grades.
All 45 98.10 locomotives were recovered after 1945 by the Deutsche Bundesbahn, and continued to be used exclusively in their native Bavaria. Though the locomotives were initially indispensable, they were put out to pasture after the advent of the "Roter Brummer" rail bus, especially those used in passenger train service. Many of the locomotives were still used after this time, in freight service especially. DB did not make any more major changes or improvements; in the late more…
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…
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 1956 State Railway of Portugal CP ordered 15 samples of four-axle electric loco Série 2500. The four motors speeded the loco up to 120 km/h.
State Railway of Csechoslowakia CSD ordered 230 samples of dieseleletric T478.1. The CKD prime mover K 6 S310 DR develops 1103 kW at 725 rpm. The four-axle loco reaches a maximum speed of 100 km/h.
F5 enables the heavy load mode: The diesel notch is always one up compared with normal operation. If you want to jump two notches, simply set CV 104 to 170 (instead of 150).
F27 turns on the manual ntoching. Once F28 is on, you can use F28 to notch up and F29 to notch down. F27, F28, and F29 must more…
