BR 44 had been the most successful steam loco for heavy freight trains at the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG). Between 1926 an end of WWII 1989 units of the 3 cylindred 2-10 had been built. They developed 1919 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. In the 1950s Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) and Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) rebuilt 36 (DB) and 95 (DR) with oil firing equipment.
BR 151 For around 40 years the Class BR 151 represented the most important type for traction of fast and heavy freight trains for the State Railway of Federal Republic of Germany (DB). At the time of origin in the early 1970s the six axle loco were faster then any more more…
Electric loco 111 of Deutsche Bundesbahn DB was purchased for fast passenger service on main lines. The four traction motors develop 3620 kW and enable the loco to reach 160 km/h. For consist use with heavy Intercity trains some locos received new pantographs. Some years ago all of the locos were given to DB Regio for push-pull operation.

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)
Single engine: more…

The Swiss electric locos Ce 6/8 III and Be 6/8 III are probably the most famous electric locos in the world. The first of the 33 locos (nick name “crocodile”) were delivered in 1919. Those locos delivered 1647 kW and reached a maximum speed of 65 km/h. The strong four –motor- units were used in heavy freight and passenger service. In the 1940s SBB modernized 13 locos (re-numbered to Be 6/8 II) with new motors to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h. In 1977 last Be 6/8 quitted service.
