BR Class 150 N XL L M4

Between 1984 and 1987 British Rail BR of England received 137 samples of diesel hydraulic railcars Class 150. Cummins 6 cylinder Diesel engine (213 kW at 2100 rpm) enalbles the raicars to speed up to 121 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

F2 slows down the locomotive slowly.

F5 enables the heavy load mode: The diesel notch is always one up compared with normal operation. If more…

BR Class 20 N XL L M4

From 1957, the British Rail BR procured a total of 228 units of the diesel-electric Class 20 for light freight train service. The supercharged eight-cylinder EE 8-CSVT engine from English Electric generated the energy for the four DC traction motors. The top speed of 120 km/h, which is still sufficient today, and good reliability are among the reasons why some of the locomotives are still in service today. Since the driver's cab was at one end of the locomotive and visibility was poor ahead of more…

BR Class 40 N XL L M4

Between 1958 and 1962, the British State Railways BR 200 had diesel-electric Class 40s built for heavy-duty express train service. The 16-cylinder diesel engine delivered 2000 HP and generated the energy for the six DC motors, which accelerated the 136-ton locomotive to 140 km/h. The high weight made two running axles necessary, which were combined with three driving axles to form a bogie. With the introduction of the high-speed trains in the late 1970s, the star of the Class 40 sank and so in more…

BR Class 69 N XL L M4

In order to meet the demand for freight locomotives, the British GB Railfreight GBRf had 16 examples of the six-axle freight locomotive class 56 extensively converted with components from class 66 from 2019. The EMD 12-710 twelve-cylinder two-stroke diesel engine has an output of 2390 kW and generates the energy for the six electric motors. At 130 km/h, the Class 69 can travel faster than its technical sisters, the Class 66. The engine driver's workplace has been upgraded with new instruments more…

BR Class 67 N XL L M4

In 1999, the British railway company EWS ordered a total of 30 units of the diesel-electric type JT42HW-HS from the Spanish-American consortium Alstom Meinfesa/EMD, primarily to cover mail trains. The EMD twelve-cylinder two-stroke diesel engine 12N-710G3B-EC develops an output of 2386 kW. The four electric motors accelerate the four-axle vehicle to 177 km/h. After modification, one locomotive was approved for 201 km/h. The locomotives, which are equipped with electric train heating, are used more…

BR Class 37 N XL L M4

With 309 units built, the Class 37, originally built as the English Electric Type 3, was a familiar sight on English main and branch lines from 1967. The power for the six electric traction motors was initially generated by a 1305 kW English Electric twelve-cylinder 12CSVT diesel engine. Originally, most locomotives for heating passenger trains were equipped with a steam boiler; some locomotives that were initially delivered without a boiler for cost reasons were retrofitted with the component more…

BR Class 66 N XL L M4

The Class 66 was created as a further development of the Class 59, of which only 15 were procured. 480 examples of the development originally commissioned by the English, Welsh & Scottish Railway were made for the British market alone. The 2400 kW powerful EMD type 12N-710 twelve-cylinder two-stroke diesel engines generate the energy for the six EMD-D43TRC traction motors. The top speed is 120 km/h. There is no train heating system on board. From 2012, the British railway company GBRf imported more…

BR Class 55 Deltic N XL L M4

Few locomotives have captured the imagination quite like British Rail’s English Electric Type 5/class 55 ‘Deltics’. First introduced in 1961, their twin Napier Deltic engines generated 3,300 horsepower, making them the most powerful single unit diesel locomotives yet produced at that time. Capable of speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, the Deltics were worthy successors to the famous express steam locomotives of Gresley, Peppercorn and Thompson on BR’s East Coast Main Line, working top link more…

BR Class 31 N XL L M4

After twenty pre-series locomotives of the six-axle Class 31 diesel locomotive, British Rail (BR) procured a further 243 units by 1962. The less reliable Mirrless diesel engine was replaced at an early stage by one from English Electric, which resulted in the 31/1 design, which was also equipped with an electropneumatic control system that had already proven its worth in other series. The 1100 kW diesel engine generates the energy for the four electric traction motors. The middle axles of the more…

BR Class 08 N XL L M4

To modernize the shunting service, the British State Railways BR procured 996 units of the Class 08 based on an LMS design from 1952. The three-axle diesel-electric locomotive had an output of 350 hp(261 kW/h, Speed 15 mph) and reached a top speed of 32 km/h. The two DC traction motors transmit their power to the wheel sets via coupling rods. 26 other locomotives received a gear reduction adapted for higher speeds and were listed as Class 09..
