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.

F4: coal shoveling or oil bruner (coal shoveling CV166 = 0 / oil bruner CV166 = 1)

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…

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..

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 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 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 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 47 N XL L M4

British Rail BR ordered 512 samples of dieselelectric Class 47. The Sulzer 12LDA28C prime mover 2750 HP and enable the six-axle locos to reach a speed of 153 km/h or 121 km/h depending on gearing.

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.
