BR245 / Traxx DE ME N XL L M4

BR 245 is the brand new diesel electric multi-motor loco of German State Railway DB. Based on the electric locos BR 145-185 new 245 shares around 75 % of the parts with them. The four Caterpillar CAT C18 diesel motors develop 563 kW each. The loco is able to reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h. Only sometimes the traction motors need the energy of all of the four motors, so the electronic system decides by itself to start or to switch off motors during operation.

BR54.8 H0 N XL L M4

In the 54.8-11 class, several operable units survived the Second World War, and they continued to see use after the war because of the extreme shortage of locomotives. This included all the 54.8 units that had been converted to superheated steam, even though this was one of the most economical DR classes. The 54.8 units that counted as Polish property were not affected by this order. They remained in DB operation until 1951, and were only decommissioned when it became clear that the political more…

BR74-T11 H0 N XL L M4

Although numerous T 11 remained after 1945 in the western occupation zones and were still in operational service, the stock was quickly decimated. Almost all existing locomotives were decommissioned by 1950. The large stock of traction vehicles which were added from Eastern and Central Germany at the end of the war made it possible. One of the three engines still in the rolling stock in 1951 was 74 313, which did service at the Hildesheim depot of the Hanover division.

Deutsche Bundesbahn

All 45 98.10 locomotives were recovered after 1945 by the Deutsche Bundesbahn, and continued to be used exclusively in their native Bavaria.

Many of the locomotives were still used after this time, in freight service especially. DB did not make any more major changes or improvements; in the late more…

In the late 1960s the railway of the German Democratic Republic (DR) ordered successors for their V200 class. The new class should have an electric heating to pull also passenger trains. The first two series (class 130 and 131) did not have a heating equipment yet. In 1973 the first of 709 samples of the electric heater equipped 132 class had been delivered to the DR. The externally quite similar 130/131/132 had a diesel electric drive and a 3000 HP 16 cylinder 4 stroke prime mover 16 Tsch more…
