V162 / BR 217 DB N XL L M4

Even during the series production of the V160, the German Federal Railroad DB was considering heating trains on non-electrified lines electrically instead of with steam, as was previously the case. In order not to have to divert power for the operation of the generator from the main diesel engine MTU MB 16 V 652 TB (1900 HP) taken over from the V160, it was decided to use the 12-cylinder engine MAN/MTU D 3650 HM 3 U with an output of 500 HP as a heating diesel engine, which had proven itself more…

TMY TAGAB NoHAB N XL L M4

After the Second World War, various European locomotive manufacturers began developing diesel-electric locomotives, which began to displace steam traction in the USA. In Sweden, Nydqvist and Holm AB (NoHAB) acquired the license to manufacture diesel locomotives for the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) in 1949. The Americans owned an export version of the F-series, which had a driver's cab at both ends. For the lighter superstructure in Europe, locos were equipped qith six instead of four axles. more…

PKP SM42 / SP42 N XL L M4

Between 1963 and 1992 Polish manufacturer Fablok built 1822 samples of hood style diesel electric freight loco SM 42. Additional 268 units (SP42) were ordered with steam heating boiler for passenger train service. The eight cylinder prime mover develops 800 HP and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h.

Different starting processes can be selected with F1: 1x press button = warm start / press button 2x = false start / press button 3x = cold start

F5 enables the heavy load mode: more…

ÖBB 2070 N XL L M4

At the beginning of the 2000s, the Austrian Federal Railways ÖBB ordered 90 class 2070 shunting locomotives, nick-named Hector, from German Vossloh. The 12-cylinder diesel engine from Caterpillar develop 738 kW at 2100 rpm. The top speed is 100 km/h. These locomotives, which MaK calls Type G 800 BB, form the basis of the fourth type of the manufacturer. The locomotives are used in heavy shunting operations and pull regional freight trains.

Kö I (Deutz A4L514) N XL L M4

The history of the small locomotives in the Kö I family goes back to 1933. To move fewer wagons or to operate smaller works connections, many locomotive factories built two-axle locomotives with diesel engines, mechanical gearboxes and chain drives that were able to travel at a maximum speed of 23 km / h. The Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered machines of the so-called reinforced standard design, some of which were delivered with two or three-cylinder Deutz engines. After the Second more…

The Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered machines of the so-called standard design, most of which were equipped with a 30 or 39 hp Kaelble F125 engine. The locomotives were used more…

RZD/RZhD ChME3 N XL L M4

In 1963 the Soviet State Railroad ordered a six-axle diesel locomotive with a central driver's cab based on American design principles from the CSSR. These had proven themselves in the Alco-RSD1 delivered to the USSR during World War II. The extremely reliable locomotive is one of the most popular diesel locomotives in the world with 8,200 units. The charged six-cylinder diesel engine CKD K 6s 310 DR developed 994 kW at 750 rpm and generated the energy for the six electric drive motors TE 006. more…

CSD T669.0/ ZSR/ZSSK Rh770 N XL L M4

In 1963 the Soviet State Railways ordered a six-axle diesel locomotive with a central driver's cab based on American design principles in the Czech Republic. These had proven themselves in the Alco-RSD1 delivered to the USSR in World War II. The Czech State Railways CKD had the T669.0 derived from the Czech locomotive type supplied to the USSR (referred to as the 770 series from 1988) and purchased 110 units. The charged six-cylinder diesel engine CKD K 6s 310 DR developed 994 kW at 750 rpm and more…
