VT 98 of German State Railway DB is a two motor two axle diesel railcar that had been built between 1953 and 1962. Each motor delivers 150 HP. Transmitted by manual 6 speed gearbox the railcars reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h. Some of the railcars are used by railway museums today. epoch selectable via CV48. epoche 3 (CV 48 = 0), Epoche 4 (CV48 = 1).

In 1971 German State Railway DB decided to improve acceleration of its diesel railcar units 601 by replacing diesel prime movers with Avco Lycoming TF 35 gas turbines. The four head end motor cars now deliver 1620 kW each and enable the 11-car train to reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h. You can select between 3 airhorns by setting CV48 to a value of either 0,1 or 2
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.
The two axle diesel railcar VT 2.09 (later 771/772) had been developed by Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) of GDR. The 180 HP diesel motor 6VD 18/15 enabled the railcar to reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h. For transmission the railcar had a 6 speed manual gearing. Last of the cars nicknamed Ferkeltaxi or Blutblase quitted service in 2004. 22 cars had been sold to Rumania and Kuba. epoch selectable via CV48. epoche 3 (CV 48 = 0), Epoche 4 (CV48 = 1).
German State Railway DB AG ordered 192 samples of hydraulic driven diesel rail car 612. The two-car-units are equipped with two Cummins-6-cyl-diesel motors. Each of them develops 560 kW, what enables the rail car to reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The cars are equipped with tilting technology for higher speeds even on some branch lines.
