RhB ABe 4/4 III N XL L M4

Swiss Rhetian Railway (RhB) received six samples of four axle electric railcar ABe 4/4 III. The railcars develop 1016 kW and reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h. For traction of longer trains the Abe 4/4 III can operate with older ABe 4/4 II or dual mode locos Gem 4/4.

BR 83.10 N XL L M4


The new locomotive program of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR after WW II contained a four-coupled tank locomotive with a drive wheel diameter of 1250 mm and a top speed of 60 km/h. The locomotive, which was designed for operation on branch lines, had an axle load of only 15 t. In accordance with their intended use, all locomotives had a bell next to the chimney. The last of the 27 units built from 1955 onwards was retired in 1974.
This project file is created for use in the PIKO H0-Model. For the 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.

ELNA N XL L M4

To standardize steam locomotives, the Engere Locomotive Standards Committee (ELNA) was founded in 1917. In addition to the framework conditions for the Einheitslokomotiven of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG, the ELNA also laid down principles for steam locomotives of non-state-owned railways. Three types were developed, of which the 1’C and D versions were by far the most common. Many parts could be exchanged for one another. Since frames, water boxes and driver's cabs were not more…

ESU BR 215 - 12V N XL L M4

The classes (BR) 215 and 218 diesel locomotives of the Western German Railway (DB) are used in mixed service since 1968.

218 101 to 194, 218 242 to 288 were equipped with a 12 cylinder 4 stroke main Diesel from MAN that was later called MTU 12 V 956 TB10 that generates 2500 HP. The 2800 HP version of this motor is called MTU 12 V 956 TB11.

In the late 1980s the exhaust system of BR 218 with the 12 V motor had been optimized. Since 1995 many of the 218 are equipped with motors called "MTU 12 more…

In 1964 series production of dieselhydraulic main line loco V160 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB started.The four axle loco was driven by a 16 cylinder diesel motor MB 16V 652 TB. The 1900-HP-locos were used in medium passenger and freight duty and reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h.

This sound file is adjusted for use in ESU Engineering Edition BR215, tem numbers 31018, 31019, 31020, 32020, 31021, 32021, 31022, 32022, 31024, 31028, 31029. To replace / upgrade the originally installed more…

G 1000 BB N XL L M4

At the beginning of the 2000s, the Austrian Federal Railways ÖBB ordered 90 class 2070 shunting locomotives from Maschinenbau Kiel MaK with Caterpillar diesel motor. These locomotives, known as MaK G 800 BB at MaK, form the basis of the 4th type program of the manufacturer. As a more powerful version of the G800, the G1000, equipped with an MTU 8V4000 diesel engine, came onto the market on the same chassis. The 1100 kW strong (at 1860 rpm) and 100 km/h fast locomotive can be ordered for axle more…

V60 N XL L M4

Zu Beginn der 1950er-Jahre musste die junge Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) ihre Lokomotivflotte erneuern. Neben Streckenloks kamen auch Rangierloks auf die Reißbretter. Für den leichten Rangierdienst gab es etwa 500 Exemplare der Kleinloks der Typen Kö/Köf. Die modernsten, speziell für den leichten und mittelschweren Verschiebedienst beschafften Einheits-Dampflok-Baureihen BR 80 und 81 waren nur in einer bescheidenen Stückzahl von zusammen 27 Exemplaren vorhanden. Den schweren Rangierdienst more…

BR 216 / V160 N XL L M4

After nine pre-series locomotives of the diesel-hydraulic series V160 with a complex round front (nicknamed Lollo, after the Italian film actress Gina Lollobrigida), in 1963 Henschel produced the last pre-series locomotive with an angular front, similar to that of the six-axle V320. Common to all pre-series locomotives was the 16-cylinder Maybach MD 870 diesel engine (later renamed MTU 16V 538 TB). The locomotives, equipped with steam heating, developed 1,900 hp and reached a top speed of 120 more…
