German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 10 samples of four axle steam locomotive for shunting service in 1928. The two cylinder locos BR 81 developed 860 HP and reached a maximum speed of 45 km/h. In 1963 final loco quitted service at DB.
The DB Class 82 was a goods train tank locomotive with the Deutsche Bundesbahn in Germany, that was built in the period after the Second World War and was intended for shunting and normal rail services. The engines were predominantly employed in the marshalling yards at Bremen and Hamm as well as on the harbour lines of Emden and Hamburg. The 82s could also be seen on normal railway duties on the steep inclines of the Westerwald and in the Black Forest on the Murg Valley Railway.
BR 85 had been develop for trains on steep grades by the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) in 1932. Ten units of the 3 cylinder 2-10-2 had been built. They developed 1500 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. In 1961 last sample of 85 quitted service at Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB).
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.==> (oil burner instead coal shoveling sound selectable via CV48 = value 1) <==
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..

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…
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…
