SJ Da N XL L M4

Between 1952 and 1957, the Swedish State Railways SJ procured a total of 93 examples of the Da for use in front of passenger and freight trains. The rod-driven three-coupler with jackshaft is based on the proven D series. After a few years of operation, the spoked wheels were replaced by rubber-sprung models, which significantly improved handling up to higher speeds. In operation, the top speed of the 1840 kW 1'C1' locomotives was limited to 100 km/h. From 1990, the reliable machines began to more…

Schienenstraßenbus BS300 N XL L M4

From 1950 the German Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) started trials with road-rail trucks and omnibuses, including buses from the Northwest German Vehicle Works NWF. In 1953, these attempts resulted in an order for 50 rail-road buses, each with two separate biaxial rail bogies. The latter was made by Waggon- und Maschinenbau Donauwörth WMD. In addition to the brake system with an additional air compressor, the installation of a second reverse gear designed for speeds of up to 40 km/h was a major more…

SNCF BB9200 / BB25100 N XL L M4

In 1957, the BB9200 was the first version of a family of locomotives from the French state railways SNCF, which shared the box body but had different gearboxes and equipment for different power systems. The 92 examples of the BB9200 express train locomotive for the 15kV direct current network are accelerated to a maximum speed of 160 km/h by four CEM 931B GLM electric motors with a combined output of 4100 kW. Since the locomotives were also to be used on ramps, the SNCF ordered 30 units with an more…

ET65 DR / BR465 DB N XL L M4

For suburban traffic in Stuttgart, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG initially purchased 21 units of the ET65 electric multiple unit from 1933. The four-axle vehicles with a top speed of 85 km/h initially drove as firmly coupled to the control car. Due to the increased space requirement, the sets in the middle of the train were supplemented by non-powered double wagons. Another, technically unchanged series of 23 powered rail cars and control cars followed in 1938. In the 1960s, the DB more…

ET85 DR / BR485 DB N XL L M4

Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 32 samples of electric railcar ET 85 in 1927. The four-axle units develop 500 kW and reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h (ET 85 05 and 09 enabled for 100 km/h).


Engineer/driver mode:

F4 / F5 - Pantograph up / down (only available in Engineer/driver mode). Engineer/driver mode switch on with CV170 = 1, Engineer/driver mode switch off with CV170 = 0)
The Engineer/driver mode serves as a prototypical control of the train. The realistic start up process more…

BR 23 N XL L M4

In 1949 the Deutsche Bundesbahn had ordered 105 locos of Class 23 steam locomotives to replace old-fashioned Prussian P8 locos. The 2 cylinder locos developed 1785 HP and reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h. They were used for passenger service, sometimes also for fast trains. Last 23 quitted service in 1975, but eight locos can be found at railroad museums in Germany and the Nederlands.

E32 / BR 132 N XL L M4

In 1924 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG received the first sample of side rod equipped electric loco E32. The 29 locos developed 1170 kW and reached a maximum speed of 75 km/h. In the 1930s eight locos were re-geared for a maximum speed of 90 km/h. In 1971 the last remaining locos quitted service at the DB.

BR65.10 N XL L M4

The new locomotive program of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR after WW II contained a tank locomotive with a drive wheel diameter of 1,600 mm and a top speed of 90 km/h. The 88 1'D2 'tank locomotives designed for commuter train service had an axle load of 18 t. The well-dimensioned boiler and the carefully developed engine provided practical pulling power and good acceleration. Since the DR converted various branch lines to an axle load of 20 t, various 65.10 were equipped with a compressed air bell more…

BR89 /pr.T3 N XL L M4

Under the series designation T3, the Royal Prussian State Railroad KPEV combined a whole series of triple-coupled, slightly different freight locomotives. From 1882 about 1550 copies were made, some of which were also delivered to private railways that were later nationalized. The 290 PS strong and 40 km/h fast two-cylinder wet steam locomotives were popular due to their undemanding nature and managed the entire operation on many branch lines. After the maximum speed was no longer sufficient more…

V162 / BR 217 DB N XL L M4

Even during the series production of the V160, the German Federal Railroad DB was considering heating trains on non-electrified lines electrically instead of with steam, as was previously the case. In order not to have to divert power for the operation of the generator from the main diesel engine MTU MB 16 V 652 TB (1900 HP) taken over from the V160, it was decided to use the 12-cylinder engine MAN/MTU D 3650 HM 3 U with an output of 500 HP as a heating diesel engine, which had proven itself more…
