BR89 /pr.T3 N XL L M4

Under the series designation T3, the Royal Prussian State Railroad KPEV combined a whole series of triple-coupled, slightly different freight locomotives. From 1882 about 1550 copies were made, some of which were also delivered to private railways that were later nationalized. The 290 PS strong and 40 km/h fast two-cylinder wet steam locomotives were popular due to their undemanding nature and managed the entire operation on many branch lines. After the maximum speed was no longer sufficient more…

V162 / BR 217 DB N XL L M4

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…

TMY TAGAB NoHAB N XL L M4

After the Second World War, various European locomotive manufacturers began developing diesel-electric locomotives, which began to displace steam traction in the USA. In Sweden, Nydqvist and Holm AB (NoHAB) acquired the license to manufacture diesel locomotives for the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) in 1949. The Americans owned an export version of the F-series, which had a driver's cab at both ends. For the lighter superstructure in Europe, locos were equipped qith six instead of four axles. more…

PKP SM42 / SP42 N XL L M4

Between 1963 and 1992 Polish manufacturer Fablok built 1822 samples of hood style diesel electric freight loco SM 42. Additional 268 units (SP42) were ordered with steam heating boiler for passenger train service. The eight cylinder prime mover develops 800 HP and enables the loco to reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h.

Different starting processes can be selected with F1: 1x press button = warm start / press button 2x = false start / press button 3x = cold start

F5 enables the heavy load mode: more…

BR 58 / pr. G12 N XL L M4

With the five-way coupled G12, the Prussian KPEV developed the first largely standardized steam locomotive series. The 1540 hp and 65 km/h three-cylinder locomotives were delivered from 1917. Because of its good operating characteristics, the Baden (98 units), Saxon (42) and Württemberg state railways (43) also procured the G12. After the Second World War, the majority of the machines, now designated as BR 58.2-21, remained in what was later to become the GDR. The fact that the locomotives had more…

ELNA N XL L M4

To standardize steam locomotives, the Engere Locomotive Standards Committee (ELNA) was founded in 1917. In addition to the framework conditions for the Einheitslokomotiven of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG, the ELNA also laid down principles for steam locomotives of non-state-owned railways. Three types were developed, of which the 1’C and D versions were by far the most common. Many parts could be exchanged for one another. Since frames, water boxes and driver's cabs were not more…

SBB Re 6/6 / Re620 N XL L M4

Swiss State Railways SBB ordered 89 samples of heavy electric locomotive Re 6/6. Each of the three trucks has two traction motors. The loco delivers 7850 kW and reaches a maximum speed of 140 km/h. Today the dependable locos are use in heavy passenger and freight train service, often on famous Gotthard route.


Engineer/driver mode:


F4 - Pantograph up / down (only available in Engineer/driver mode). Engineer/driver mode switch on with CV170 = 1, Engineer/driver mode switch off with CV170 = more…

RhB Ge 4/4 III N XL L M4

For freight and passenger trains on the Stammnetz Swiss Rhetian Railways (RhB) ordered 12 samples of four axle four motor Ge 4/4 III. The metre gauge locos develop 3100 kW and reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Swiss Biére-Apples-Morges-Bahn (BAM) ordered another two internally and externally nearly identical locos.

ÖBB 2070 N XL L M4

At the beginning of the 2000s, the Austrian Federal Railways ÖBB ordered 90 class 2070 shunting locomotives, nick-named Hector, from German Vossloh. The 12-cylinder diesel engine from Caterpillar develop 738 kW at 2100 rpm. The top speed is 100 km/h. These locomotives, which MaK calls Type G 800 BB, form the basis of the fourth type of the manufacturer. The locomotives are used in heavy shunting operations and pull regional freight trains.

SBB Eb3/5 N XL L M4

Between 1911 and 1916, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) purchased 34 exemplars of the Eb 3/5 tank locomotive for suburban passenger train service. The three-coupler, which is 75 km/h in both directions of travel due to the symmetrical wheel base, developed 730 kW and performed reliably until the official end of steam operation at the SBB in 1965. After the progressive electrification of most of the suburban lines, the locomotives, known as "Habersack" because of the attached tender, were used more…
