BR210 H0

In 1970 the German DB built eight four axle diesel locomotives class 210 for heavy passenger service. The locos base on famous dieselhydraulic V160 series and reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The 210 had a MTU MA 12 V 956 TB 10 traction diesel motor and a separately shifted Avco Lycoming licensed gas turbine T 53-L 13. After two heavy defectives DB decided in 1978 to dismount the gas turbines. Till 2006 the locos were used as standard 218 and with the numbers 218 901-908.

BR 219 / V169 H0

In 1965 German DB ordered the first diesel hydraulic locomotive with additional gas turbine power. The V169 001 delivered 3200 HP and reached a maximum speed of 130 km/h. The gas turbine worked automatically when the engineer activated the booster notch while the diesel motor works in (highest) notch 15. In 1974 after around 9 years in heavy passenger service the now called 219 001 had a defective gas turbine so DB dismounted this booster and used the loco for 3 additional years.

VT 36.5 H0

The former Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) ordered 50 hydraulic foru axle diesel railcars numbered as VT 137 241-270 and VT 137 442-461. The MAN diesel motors delivered 360 HP at 870 rpm and reached a maximum speed of 100 km/h. After WWII 16 railcars went to DB, seven were owned by DR.

Standart Class7 Britannia H0

Debuting in 1951 the BR Standard Class 7 had been one of the most famous classes of British steam locomotives. The two cylinder locos reached a maximum speed of 144 km/h and were used till 1966. 70000 “Britannia” and 70013 “Oliver Cromwell” are preserved and power fan trip trains.

SR West Country Class (Un-R) H0

Oliver Bulleid designed SR West Country Class with an air-smoothed body that gives the 110 samples a distinctive look. The members of West Country class ran smoothly even at high speed but they consumed too much fuel. So BR decided to re-design many of the locos with a more conventional look even in the early 1960s. Many of the non-rebuilts survived in service until 1967.

BR119 DR - 12KVD H0

The BR 119 (since 1990 BR 219) had been developed by Rumanian manufacturer „Lokomotivfabrik 23. August“ Bukarest as two motor diesel locomotive for the GDR state railway DR . The two traction motors delivered 1350 HP at 1500 rpm each and enabled the loco to reach a maximum speed of 120 km/h. For the use also on branch lines the six axle loco has a load per axle of 16 tons only. As the motors had been unreliable, the DR interchanged them with turbo charged 12 KVD motors of V180/BR 118 in the more…

SR Merchant Navy Class H0

Oliver Bulleid designed SR Merchant Navy Class with an air-smoothed body that gives the 30 samples a distinctive look.
