In 1965 German Deutsche Bundesbahn developed a six axle electric loco for fast passenger service. The unique design made the E03 (later 103) for the most famous German electric loco. All sample of the three designs reached a maximum speed of 200 km/h. Although they were developed only for light trains the 103 succeeded in heavy intercity service for more than 30 years.Engineer/driver mode:

In order to have greater speed reserves when pulling express trains in the 1930s, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG had the 03.10 developed with streamlined cladding. The acoustics of the 03.10 differ significantly from the two-cylinder standard locomotives of the class 03 with their three-cylinder engine. 45 copies of the 140 km/h fast racer survived World War II. Some of the locomotives were given new replacement boilers, the ones that had not been converted were eliminated until 1957.
In 1959 German DR equipped 16 samples of three-cylinder steam loco 03.10 with new boilers similar to classes 22 and 41. The so-called Reko-03.10 developed 2350 HP and reached a maximum speed of 140 km/h. After receiving oil firing equipment the performance improved again, so the Reko 03.10 stayed in service till 1980. British railfans nick-named museum loco 03 1010 the “roaring monster”.
Propeller rail car "Schienenzeppelin"; configurated for OLD VERSION oft he Schienenzeppelin please note: both motors controlled by one decoder (propeller via Aux 1 and 2 !); control of the seperate drive motor could be achieved by an extra LokPilot
Between 1967 and 1974, the French state railway SNCF purchased 92 copies of the six-axle CC 72000 for fast passenger traffic on non-electrified main lines. The 16-cylinder diesel engine AGO V16 ESHR from SACM has an output of 2650 kW at 1350 rpm and generates the energy for the two electric drive motors TAO 656 B1 in the bogies. The maximum speed is 160 km/h.

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…
In 1939 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG received 1st of more than 3100 samples of 2-10-0 two-cylinder steam loco BR 50. The loco developed 1625 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. With its axle load of just 15,2 tons the locos were used even on branch lines with light weight rails. Locos of DB quitted service in 1977, the DR locos were used for ten more years.
In the early 1950s German Deutsche Bundesbahn DB decided to replace worn out boilers of Class 41 steam locomotives with new ones. The 40 locos with coal firing developed 1940 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The 41s werde used for fast freight and heavy passenger service.
In the early 1950s German Deutsche Bundesbahn DB decided to replace worn out boilers of Class 41 steam locomotives with new ones. The 40 locos with oil firing developed 1975 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The 41s werde used for fast freight and heavy passenger service.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 10 samples of four axle steam locomotive for shunting service in 1928. The two cylinder locos BR 81 developed 860 HP and reached a maximum speed of 45 km/h. In 1963 final loco quitted service at DB.
