P10 KPEV BR39 DB DR N XL L M4

For the heavy express train service in the hill country, the Prussian KPEV had a four-coupled three-cylinder locomotive developed instead of replicating the proven Saxon XX HV with four cylinders. Borsig's design was then implemented, although the required maximum axle load of 17 t was exceeded by almost 2 t, meaning the locomotive could only be used on a few routes. With its output of 1,620 hp, it reached a top speed of 110 km/h. When most of the main routes were upgraded for an axle load of more…

BR18.4 / BR18.5 Bayr. S3/6 N XL L M4

In 1908 the locomotive factory J.A. Maffei was commissioned by the Royal Bavarian State Railway to develop a new express locomotive based on the IVf delivered to the Baden State Railway. The series a-c and f-i with 1870 mm high driving wheels were designated as series 18.4 by the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG, as were the series d and e equipped with 2000 mm driving wheels. The four-cylinder compound locomotives produced 1,770 hp and reached 120 km/h with very good driving more…

BR18.3 Bad. IVh N XL L M4

The Ivh of Badische Staatsbahn, later the 18³ series, was purchased from 1918 as an express steam locomotive primarily for the Rhine Valley Railway Basel - Mannheim. The manufacturer of all 20 machines was the renowned Munich locomotive factory J.A. Maffei. The IVh was designed as a 4-cylinder composite engine. The balanced drive made her a fast cross-country skier and the top speed could be increased from the original 110 km/h to 140 km/h. The use of the 18.3 on the famous Rheingold Express more…

V180 DR / BR118 BR228 DB N XL L M4

To replace medium-duty steam locomotive series in passenger and freight train service, the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR developed the twin-engine V180 series with diesel-hydraulic drive in the late 1950s. The four-axle vehicles, initially equipped with two 900 hp twelve-cylinder Type 12 KVD 21 A diesel engines, reached a top speed of 120 km/h. The locomotives delivered from 1965 received the second expansion stage of the diesel engine. This also applied to the six-axle versions, which were heavier more…

DR V100 N XL L M4

The dieselhydraulic V100 (1968 BR 110 – 115, ab 1992 BR 201 – 204, 293) had been developed by VEB Lokomotivbau „Karl Marx“ for GDR state railway DR for multi purpose service on main and branch lines. The traction motors delivered 1000 HP at 1500 rpm and enabled the loco to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The turbocharged engine 12 KVD 21 SVW is similar to the motor of V180/V100.

BR 95 DRG/DR/DB pr.T20 N XL L M4

For service on steep grades prussian state railway (KPEV) ordered 45 samples of 2-10-2 steam locos T20. Successor DRG re-numbered them for 95.0. The locos delivered 1620 HP and reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h. The powerful locos were used for short line passenger and freight service. After WW II 14 locos were used by DB till 1958. DR rebuilt 24 samples with oil firing equipment and used them till 1981.

KLV53 Rottenkraftwagen N XL L M4

The Deutsche Bundesbahn DB commissioned the rail vehicle manufacturer Schöma with the further development of the Klv 50 and Klv 51 motor vehicles. The core requirement was the creation of an enlarged driver's cab as a lounge for the workers. In addition to Schöma, five other manufacturers took over the series production of a total of 824 units, which started in 1963. The three air-cooled Deutz engines delivered 77 (petrol engine), 116 and 150 hp (both diesel) and accelerated the two-axle more…

SNCB/NMBS HLE 27 N XL L M4

Between 1984 and 1987, the Belgian State Railways SNCB/NMBS purchased 60 samples of the HLE 27 electric multi-purpose locomotive for the 3kV DC net. The four-axle locomotives produce 4380 kW and reach a top speed of 160 km/h and initially hauled almost exclusively inter-city trains. As part of a social project, locomotive 2711 broke the world record for the longest passenger train in the world at the time in 1991 with 70 passenger cars. In 2006, all locomotives were equipped with push-pull more…

ET403 DB N XL L M4

In 1973, the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB received three electric multiple units for inter-city express transport. All 16 axles of the four-part vehicle were powered. As was usual at the time, the trains only had first class places. Due to the small number of units, various assemblies from the already proven ET 420 S-Bahn multiple unit were installed, which enabled a reasonably secure stock of spare parts for wearing parts. The output was 3840 kW, the maximum speed in passenger operation was 200 more…

BR Class 57 (EMD 12 645F3B) N XL L M4

The emergence of the Class 57 went back to the idea of the British freight train service provider Freightliner, founded in the 1990s, who wanted to buy some of the state-owned British Rail Class 47s, which were prone to damage and were inefficient, and wanted to use them again after modernization. As a life-prolonging measure, for example, the 12-cylinder diesel engine 12-645 from EMD, which has been tried and tested ten thousand times over, was installed, which accelerated the six-axle vehicle more…
