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…

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…

BR03.10 DB Neubaukessel N XL L M4

In the early days of the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB, the 03.10, which had been freed from the streamlining, were heavily used in express train service, which revealed the boiler's weaknesses. In order to remedy these deficiencies, the DB equipped a total of 25 units with new replacement boilers from 1957, which had proven themselves in the 41 series. With an output of 1870 hp and a top speed of 140 km/h, the locomotives from Hagen mainly pulled express trains. Since the locomotives were very more…

BR03.10 DR Rekolok N XL L M4

In 1959 German DR equipped 16 samples of three-cylinder steam loco 03.10 with new boilers similar to classes 22 and 41. The so-called Reko-03.10 developed 2350 HP and reached a maximum speed of 140 km/h. After receiving oil firing equipment the performance improved again, so the Reko 03.10 stayed in service till 1980. British railfans nick-named museum loco 03 1010 the “roaring monster”.

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.

BR119 DR - 12KVD N XL L M4

The BR 119 (since 1990 BR 219) had been developed by Rumanian manufacturer „Lokomotivfabrik 23. August“ Bukarest as two motor diesel locomotive for the GDR state railway DR . The two traction motors delivered 1350 HP at 1500 rpm each and enabled the loco to reach a maximum speed of 120 km/h. For the use also on branch lines the six axle loco has a load per axle of 16 tons only. As the motors had been unreliable, the DR interchanged them with turbo charged 12 KVD motors of V180/BR 118 in the more…
