BR 218 N XL L M4

The classes (BR) 215 and 218 diesel locomotives of the Western German Railway (DB) are used in mixed service since 1968.

218 101 to 194, 218 242 to 288 were equipped with a 12 cylinder 4 stroke main Diesel from MAN that was later called MTU 12 V 956 TB10 that generates 2500 HP. The 2800 HP version of this motor is called MTU 12 V 956 TB11.

In the late 1980s the exhaust system of BR 218 with the 12 V motor had been optimized. Since 1995 many of the 218 are equipped with motors called "MTU 12 more…

BR 218 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…

BR 218 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…

BR 614 N XL L M4

In 1971 German Federal Railway DB ordered 42 sampels of triple dieselhydraulic railcar VT 614. A MAN diesel motor D 3650 HM 12 U in both of the cab cars developed 331 kW at 2150 rpm. The railcars reached a maximum speed of 140 km/h and were sold or scrapped until 2010.

BR 66 (DB) N XL L M4

The BR 66 had been a completely new design of Deutsche Bundesbahn in 1955. The two cylinder loco developed 1170 HP and reached a maximum speed of 100 km/h. It showed an excellent acceleration and tractive power but as DB switched motive power to diesel and electrics only two samples are built.

BR 75.1-3 / Badische VI b N XL L M4

German Badische Staatsbahn ordered 173 samples of 2-6-2 tank engine IV b for steep grades of Black Forrest lines. The two cylinder locos developed 540 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h.

BR 78 N XL L M4

In 1912 Prussian State Railway ordered the first of 462 samples of the 4-6-4 saddle tank loco T18. The two-cylinder loco developed 1140 HP and reached a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The locos were used for passenger trains on main and branch lines and stayed in service until 1974.

BR 83.10 N XL L M4


The new locomotive program of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DR after WW II contained a four-coupled tank locomotive with a drive wheel diameter of 1250 mm and a top speed of 60 km/h. The locomotive, which was designed for operation on branch lines, had an axle load of only 15 t. In accordance with their intended use, all locomotives had a bell next to the chimney. The last of the 27 units built from 1955 onwards was retired in 1974.
