BR38.10-40 / Pr. P8 N XL L M4

The Prussian P8, built from 1906, was perhaps the best-known German steam locomotive series. Its designer Robert Garbe even wanted to see it used in express train service, but approval for 110 km/h failed due to its rough running at high speeds. The 1,180 hp two-cylinder locomotives reached 100 km/h and were considered undemanding and reliable pulling horses for passenger trains. They also proved their worth in front of light and fast freight trains. Of the 3,444 examples that were built for more…

BR39 DB DR / Pr. P10 KPEV 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…

BR62 DRG, DB, DR N XL L M4

The class 62 express tank locomotive was part of the standard locomotive program of the German Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG). The 1,680 hp two-cylinder locomotive was designed for service on short main routes where the idea was to avoid turning the locomotives in the terminal stations in favor of short turnaround times. The drive wheel diameter of 1750 mm was a good compromise for good acceleration and a top speed of 100 km/h. During the DRG era, the 15 locomotives proved their worth, for more…

BR 98.8 Bayr. GtL 4/4 N XL L M4

From 1911 onwards, Krauss delivered 117 examples of the GtL 4/4 two-cylinder local railway locomotive in several series to the Bavarian State Railways. The Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG received the last 17 in 1927 and grouped them as the 98.8 series. With an output of 450 hp, the four-couplers were the most powerful Bavarian local railway machines. The DRG only considered the top speed of 40 km/h to be in need of improvement and equipped the most recently delivered locomotives with a 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…

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.

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.

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…
