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…

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.

BR01.10 Kohle N XL L M4

In 1939, Schwartzkopff delivered the model locomotive and the 55 series locomotives for the heavy express train service. The German Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft canceled the further orders because of the start of the war. The 2,120 hp three-cylinder locomotives all had streamlined cladding, which was partially dismantled during the course of the Second World War to simplify maintenance and due to lack of necessity. All 55 locomotives survived the war, but massive damage to the boilers soon became more…

BR01.10 Oel N XL L M4

In 1939, Schwartzkopff delivered the pre-series sample and the 55 series locomotives for the heavy express train service. The German Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft canceled the further orders because of the start of the war. All 55 three-cylinder locomotives survived the war, but massive damage to the boilers soon became apparent, which is why the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB fitted the locomotives with new boilers from 1953 onwards. Despite the BR V200 diesel locomotives having been working in the same more…

BR 65 DB N XL L M4

The BR 65 had been a completely new design of DB in 1951. The two cylinder loco had a maximum speed of 85 km/h and showed an excellent acceleration and tractive power. The BR 65 had been used for passenger trains in rolling country.

BR 03 Reko DR N XL L M4

Due to the lack of heavy express train steam locomotives of the 01 series, the 03, which was less suitable for these services, had to step in in the 1950s and 1960s. Since the locomotives were still quite new in the 1950s and in good general condition, the DR decided not to reconstruct them. However, after the very new boilers of the 22 decommissioned (reconstructed BR 39, ex. pr. P10) were available from 1969, 52 old building 03s were equipped with these Reko boilers. At this point, the DR's more…

BR 80 N XL L M4

In order to replace uneconomical old worn out locomotives in shunting service, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG also included a shunting locomotive with an axle load of 18 t in the Einheitslok program. From 1928 the DRG put 39 copies of the 575 hp three-coupler into service. After the Second World War, 21 machines remained with the DR and 17 locomotives with the DB. Despite convincing operating characteristics, the DB stopped its 80 until 1965, as the new V60s were available in more…

BR 52 Kondenstender DRB N XL L M4

From 1942 the class 52 was derived from the light but powerful class 50 goods train tender locomotive developed from 1937 and mass-produced from 1939. Despite numerous simplifications, the war locomotive with 1640 hp had the same performance as the 50 and also reached 80 km/h when driving forwards. Initially, smoke deflectors were also dispensed with, but after a short time smaller Witte plates were retrofitted compared to the 50. So that the locomotives could withstand the winter in the more…
