Diesel electric loco DE 1002 of German manufacturer MaK is a reliable design for medium freight service of private owners. The 12-cylinder diesel prime mover develops 1120 or 1320 kW at 1800 rpm and enables the DE 1002 to reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The 24 locos are delivered between 1982 and 1988.
In 1989, MaK (vehicle part) and ABB (electrical part) developed the DE 1024 diesel-electric series with three-phase power transmission for demonstration purposes. The MaK 12M282 diesel engine developed 2650 kW at 1000 rpm and generated the power for the six traction motors. Since the locomotive with its maximum speed of 160 km/h was also to be used in heavy passenger train service, it was fitted with a train heating system. The Deutsche Bundesbahn DB rented the three prototypes on a long-term more…
Manufacturer MaK had introduced its successful four axle freight locomotive in 1997. Till 2012 170 samples of the loco had been produced by MaK and its follower Vossloh. The diesel motor delivers around 1500 kW at 1800 rpm and reaches a maximum speed of 60 -100 km/h depending on gearing.
German MAN developed a 2 axle Diesel railcar in 1955. The car was delivered with one or two MAN diesel engines. Single engine cars and developed 150 to 180 HP, double engine cars developed 300 up to 400 HP. Many customers ordered the railcars with two motors to pull freight cars on branch lines. Maximum speed was between 70 and 90 km/h depending on gearing.
Please note: With CV 168, the motor sequence can be changed from two to one drive motor.
Twin engine: CV 168 = 0 (default)

Between 1956 and 1962 Orenstein & Koppel (O&K) had built 22 two axle locos for switching service in industrial plants. The hydraulic driven locos have a 12 cylinder Diesel motor with 200 HP and reach a maximum speed of 30 km/h. Some locos had been sold to foreign users, bust some are still in service for their owner since more than 50 years.
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…

Zu Beginn der 1950er-Jahre musste die junge Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) ihre Lokomotivflotte erneuern. Neben Streckenloks kamen auch Rangierloks auf die Reißbretter. Für den leichten Rangierdienst gab es etwa 500 Exemplare der Kleinloks der Typen Kö/Köf. Die modernsten, speziell für den leichten und mittelschweren Verschiebedienst beschafften Einheits-Dampflok-Baureihen BR 80 und 81 waren nur in einer bescheidenen Stückzahl von zusammen 27 Exemplaren vorhanden. Den schweren Rangierdienst more…
In 1962 German State Railway DB ordered 380 samples of dieselhydraulic loco V100.20 (later BR 212). The MB 835 Ab diesel develops 1350 HP at 1500 rpm and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. 10 more locos were equiped with additional brake for service on steep grades. Those locos were named V100.23 (later BR 213).
