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. After debut of successor Standard Class 7 Merchant Navy class had been re-designed with a more conventional look. In 1967, quite in fall of her career 35003 „Royal Mail“ had reached a maximum speed of 150,88 mph.

NS 6400 H0

Class 6400 of Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) had been delivered by German Maschinenbau Kiel (MaK) from 1988 till 1994. The 120 locos develop 1180 kW at 1800 rpm and reach a maximum speed of 120 km/h. From 2007 till 2011 the four axle locos had been also used for cross border service to Germany.

SNCF 141TA H0

Between 1911 and 1923 French Railway Company Prais-Orleans PO received 190 samples of two cylinder tank engine 141 TA. The locos reached a maximum speed of 70 km/h and had been used in commuter service around Paris as well as on branch lines in Massif Central area. In 1970 the last 141 TA had been withdrawn.

BB 63000 / SZ643 H0

The French four axle locos BB 63000 were built for heavy switching and medium freight service in 1953 till 1964. The diesel electric locos had a Sulzer diesel motor that developed 552 kW at 950 rpm. The 250 locos reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. BB 63000 coupled to a steam heating car were used sometimes in regional passenger service on branch lines. (sound can also be used for the slovenian AZ 643).

Dampfturbine H0

For increase of traction power and to gain coal efficiency few locomotive manufacturers had developed steam turbine locomotives in the 1920s till 1940s. In 1926 German Lokomotivfabrik J.A. Maffei for example built the 4-6-2 steamturbine locomotive T18 002 with Ljungstoem drive train. The loco delivered 2000 HP and reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h. Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG used the loco for fast passenger trains till it had been damaged during WW II. Even the most successful steam more…

BR71 H0

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.
