In the early 1930s the German Waggonfabrik Wismar developed a small two motor railcar. Each of the two motors develop 50 HP at the cars with 4000 mm wheelbase and 90 HP at the longer ones with 6000 mm wheelbase. The railcars reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h.
For shunting service Swiss State Railway SBB ordered 14 samples of two motor diesel electric loco Bm 6/6. The locos develop 956 kW and reached a maximum speed of 75 km/h.
For replacement of old fashioned steam shunters Swiss State Railway SBB ordered 46 samples of diesel electric four axled Bm 4/4. The 12 cylinder diesel develops 620 kW and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) received 64 samples of 2-axle diesel railcar VT 135 061-064, 067-076 and 083-132. After WW II DB renumbered them for VT 70.9, DR for BR 186. The 6 cylinder diesel prime mover enabled the railcar to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h.
For shunting service British Rail (BR) received 996 samples of diesel electric Class 08. The six cylinder diesel motor developed 350 hp at 900 rpm and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 32 km/h.
