V200.0 N XL L M4

In early 1950s young German Federal Railway (DB) introduced four axle two motor dieselhydraulic V200. The loco is powered by two 12 cylinder 1100 HP diesel made by Daimler-Benz, MAN or mostly a MD650 made by Maybach. For use in passenger service all locos received steam heating equipment by Hagenuk. With its maximum speed of 140 km/h the locos were used for multi purpose. After around 30 years DB discharged the locos. 13 locos went to Italian users, seven were sold to swiss SBB for traction of more…

BR 218 BLAU N XL L M4

After stricter exhaust gas values had been in effect since the early 1990s, it was clear that the 218 that were due for reengineering can no longer be equipped with the exhaust-optimized 12-cylinder diesel engine 12 V 956 TB11, as this no longer complied with the limit values. MTU therefore took the previous engine block from the TB11 and changed the electronics. The blue paintwork also makes the new motor look different from its gray predecessor. The soundscape of the two TB11 versions differs more…

RhB ABe 8/12 N XL L M4

In 2010, a new era started with the year´s summer timetable among RhB´s rolling stock: the first 15 copies of the three-part “Allegra” dual-voltage railcars, ordered from Stadler, replaced some of the locomotives which had seen better days.
The powerful and air-conditioned ABe 4/8 3501-3515 can be either used on the main line´s AC system or the DC-powered “Bernina” line.
With further procurements, the operational concept of locomotive-drawn trains has changed with the exception of the Albula more…

RhB Be4/4 511-514 N XL L M4

Starting in 1971, the Rhaetian Railway RhB procured four three-car Be 4/4 electric multiple units, primarily for suburban traffic in Chur. At the time, the four-motor push-pull trans trains were the first traction vehicles in Switzerland to have thyristor control. The 784 kW strong reached a top speed of 90 km/h. In addition to an electro-pneumatic air brake, the three-part vehicles also decelerated with the electric regenerative brake. In 1979, the RhB ordered two more, largely identical more…

T18 DRG Ep. II N XL L M4

The Prussian Railway Administration KPEV had a total of 462 examples of the 1140 hp 2'C2' T18 tank locomotives built between 1912 and 1923. The manufacturer Vulcan delivered twenty machines to Württemberg in 1919. The original task was to transport fast passenger trains on short connections. The two-cylinder locomotives could be used forwards and backwards at 100 km/h and thus did not have to be turned at the end point. In a Prussian way, the locomotives designated as class 78.0-5 from the more…

SNCF 140 C N XL L M4

Between 1913 and 1917 the French state railway company ÉTAT purchased 340 copies of the 1’D 140 C steam locomotive. After the beginning of the First World War, production was outsourced to British manufacturers. A third series of 70 machines was ordered for the transport of French artillery trains and after the War sold in equal parts to the French Eastern Railway EST and the PLM. The locomotives intended for freight train service developed 1210 hp and achieved an impressive 70 km/h for a more…
