DR V100 N XL L M4

The dieselhydraulic V100 (1968 BR 110 – 115, ab 1992 BR 201 – 204, 293) had been developed by VEB Lokomotivbau „Karl Marx“ for GDR state railway DR for multi purpose service on main and branch lines. The traction motors delivered 1000 HP at 1500 rpm and enabled the loco to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The turbocharged engine 12 KVD 21 SVW is similar to the motor of V180/V100.

V180 DR / BR118 BR228 DB N XL L M4

To replace medium-duty steam locomotive series in passenger and freight train service, the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR developed the twin-engine V180 series with diesel-hydraulic drive in the late 1950s. The four-axle vehicles, initially equipped with two 900 hp twelve-cylinder Type 12 KVD 21 A diesel engines, reached a top speed of 120 km/h. The locomotives delivered from 1965 received the second expansion stage of the diesel engine. This also applied to the six-axle versions, which were heavier more…

MaK DE1024 N XL L M4

In 1989, MaK (vehicle part) and ABB (electrical part) developed the DE 1024 diesel-electric series with three-phase power transmission for demonstration purposes. The MaK 12M282 diesel engine developed 2650 kW at 1000 rpm and generated the power for the six traction motors. Since the locomotive with its maximum speed of 160 km/h was also to be used in heavy passenger train service, it was fitted with a train heating system. The Deutsche Bundesbahn DB rented the three prototypes on a long-term more…

Vossloh Euro 4000 N XL L M4

For spanish Comsa Rail and various private european railway companies, Alstom (later Vossloh Spain, today Stadler Rail) developed the six-axle EURO4000 main line diesel locomotive in close cooperation with the US manufacturer EMD from 2005 onwards. The 16-cylinder two-stroke diesel engine EMD 16-710 G3C-U2, which supplies the six electric traction motors with energy, has an output of 3178 kW at 950 RPM and, depending on the transmission, enables a top speed of up to 160 km/h. There are more…

KLV53 Rottenkraftwagen N XL L M4

The Deutsche Bundesbahn DB commissioned the rail vehicle manufacturer Schöma with the further development of the Klv 50 and Klv 51 motor vehicles. The core requirement was the creation of an enlarged driver's cab as a lounge for the workers. In addition to Schöma, five other manufacturers took over the series production of a total of 824 units, which started in 1963. The three air-cooled Deutz engines delivered 77 (petrol engine), 116 and 150 hp (both diesel) and accelerated the two-axle more…

BR218 MTU 4000R 16V N XL L M4

After at least 15 years of hard service, many TB11 12-cylinder 218 series diesel engines were coming to the end of their useful life. From 1996, MTU switched the production of locomotive diesel motors to the Type 4000, which was available with eight, twelve and 16 cylinders and was much more compact than the massive TB10 and TB11. In the 218, the 16-cylinder MTU 16V 4000 R40 and R41 was used for repowering, of which DB AG ordered 80 units. The engines are set for an output of 2682 hp at 1800 more…

Köf III N XL L M4

In order to rationalize shunting operations at larger stations, the Zentralamt of German DB developed a two-axle diesel locomotive with hydrodynamic transmission together with the locomotive manufacturer Gmeinder. The first 300 copies still had a power transmission with chains, the others had a cardan shaft drive. The proven 240 hp RHS 518 from MWM was used as the engine for the series locomotives. The pre-series locomotives later classified as class 331 initially had to be content with a more…

Vossloh G1700-2 BB N XL L M4

Starting in 2002, Vossloh developed the four-axle diesel-hydraulic G1700-2 BB for heavy shunting and medium-duty freight train service. The Caterpillar 3512B diesel engine was customized to deliver 1700 kW at 1800 rpm. The transmission came from the more powerful G2000 with only two converters and a mechanical shift stage. With a top speed of 100 km/h, the owners of the four-axle locomotives are also happy to use the locomotives for main line service. Vossloh was able to sell 31 copies in more…

BR 218 MTU-12V-956-TB11 blau N XL L M4

After stricter exhaust gas values had been in effect since the early 1990s, it was clear that the 218 that were due for reengineering can no longer be equipped with the exhaust-optimized 12-cylinder diesel engine 12 V 956 TB11, as this no longer complied with the limit values. MTU therefore took the previous engine block from the TB11 and changed the electronics. The blue paintwork also makes the new motor look different from its gray predecessor. The soundscape of the two TB11 versions differs more…

Schienenstraßenbus BS300 N XL L M4

From 1950 the German Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) started trials with road-rail trucks and omnibuses, including buses from the Northwest German Vehicle Works NWF. In 1953, these attempts resulted in an order for 50 rail-road buses, each with two separate biaxial rail bogies. The latter was made by Waggon- und Maschinenbau Donauwörth WMD. In addition to the brake system with an additional air compressor, the installation of a second reverse gear designed for speeds of up to 40 km/h was a major more…
