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 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.

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…
