DSB MZ II N XL L M4

Between 1967 and 1969 the Danish State Railways DSB purchased 10 units of the diesel-electric series MZ I, and in the following year 16 units of the type MZ II, which differ from the former only in a changed position of the battery box and the air reservoir. Traditional American engine technology works in the locomotive bodies manufactured by Frichs. The diesel engine chosen was the 2426 kW (at 900 rpm) 16-cylinder two-stroke engine 16-645 E3 from EMD, which generates the energy for the six more…

BR218 MTU 4000R 16V N XL L M4

After at least 15 years of hard service, many TB11 12-cylinder 218 series diesel engines were coming to the end of their useful life. From 1996, MTU switched the production of locomotive diesel motors to the Type 4000, which was available with eight, twelve and 16 cylinders and was much more compact than the massive TB10 and TB11. In the 218, the 16-cylinder MTU 16V 4000 R40 and R41 was used for repowering, of which DB AG ordered 80 units. The engines are set for an output of 2682 hp at 1800 more…

BR MPV Windhoff N XL L M4

Based on the CargoSprinter railcar from the 1990s, Windhoff developed a modular platform for self-propelled railway service and rescue vehicles. The vehicles, known as Multi Purpose Vehicles MPV, are powered by two 6-cylinder MTU diesel power packs with a flanged ZF gearbox. The 780 kW four-axle vehicles reach a top speed of 100 km/h. From 1999, the British state infrastructure operator Network Rail procured a total of 18 single and 32 double units for work on the rail network.

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…
