BR03.10 DRG/DB/DR Einh. Loks N XL L M4

In order to have greater speed reserves when pulling express trains in the 1930s, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG had the 03.10 developed with streamlined cladding. The acoustics of the 03.10 differ significantly from the two-cylinder standard locomotives of the class 03 with their three-cylinder engine. 45 copies of the 140 km/h fast racer survived World War II. Some of the locomotives were given new replacement boilers, the ones that had not been converted were eliminated until 1957.

BR05 001 /BR05 002 /BR05 003 N XL L M4

In 1935 German manufacturer Borsig had delivered 4-6-4 steam locos 05 001 and 002 for Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft DRG for fast passenger service. 05 003 had been delivered in 1937 with cab forward design. After WW II DB rebuilt the locos without streamline body and used them till 1958.

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…

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…

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…

BR38.4 N XL L M4

The bavarian P 3/5 H had been developed 1921 for medium passenger service but also succeeded in fast train service. Maffei built 80 samples for the Gruppenverwaltung Bayern of the DRG. The 4 cyl loco reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h and could be seen also in front of the famous Orient Express on its way through Bavaria. Last samples of this success loco had been scrapped in 1955.

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…

BR 43 steam locomotive of the german reich railways DRG. type 1'E-h2


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…

BR65.10 N XL L M4

The new locomotive program of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR after WW II contained a tank locomotive with a drive wheel diameter of 1,600 mm and a top speed of 90 km/h. The 88 1'D2 'tank locomotives designed for commuter train service had an axle load of 18 t. The well-dimensioned boiler and the carefully developed engine provided practical pulling power and good acceleration. Since the DR converted various branch lines to an axle load of 20 t, various 65.10 were equipped with a compressed air bell more…
