The DB Class 82 was a goods train tank locomotive with the Deutsche Bundesbahn in Germany, that was built in the period after the Second World War and was intended for shunting and normal rail services. The engines were predominantly employed in the marshalling yards at Bremen and Hamm as well as on the harbour lines of Emden and Hamburg. The 82s could also be seen on normal railway duties on the steep inclines of the Westerwald and in the Black Forest on the Murg Valley Railway.
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.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 520 samples of steam locomotive BR 64 for light passenger duty in 1928. The successful two cylinder locos developed 950 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The locos were use on main and secondary lines and stayed in service until 1975.
BR 85 had been develop for trains on steep grades by the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) in 1932. Ten units of the 3 cylinder 2-10-2 had been built. They developed 1500 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. In 1961 last sample of 85 quitted service at Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB).
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.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 28 samples of steam locomotive BR 45 for heavy and fast freight duty. The 3-cylinder locos developed 2800 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. After WW II seven locos were given to testing department BZA of Deutsche Bundesbahn to simulate heavy trains during approval runs of new locomotives.
In the early days of the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB, the 03.10, which had been freed from the streamlining, were heavily used in express train service, which revealed the boiler's weaknesses. In order to remedy these deficiencies, the DB equipped a total of 25 units with new replacement boilers from 1957, which had proven themselves in the 41 series. With an output of 1870 hp and a top speed of 140 km/h, the locomotives from Hagen mainly pulled express trains. Since the locomotives were very more…
Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 32 samples of electric railcar ET 85 in 1927. The four-axle units develop 500 kW and reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h (ET 85 05 and 09 enabled for 100 km/h).
F4 / F5 - Pantograph up / down (only available in Engineer/driver mode). Engineer/driver mode switch on with CV170 = 1, Engineer/driver mode switch off with CV170 = 0)
The Engineer/driver mode serves as a prototypical control of the train. The realistic start up process more…
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…
The new locomotive program of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR after WW II contained a tank locomotive with a drive wheel diameter of 1,600 mm and a top speed of 90 km/h. The 88 1'D2 'tank locomotives designed for commuter train service had an axle load of 18 t. The well-dimensioned boiler and the carefully developed engine provided practical pulling power and good acceleration. Since the DR converted various branch lines to an axle load of 20 t, various 65.10 were equipped with a compressed air bell more…
