BR38.10-40 / Pr. P8  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

The Prussian P8, built from 1906, was perhaps the best-known German steam locomotive series. Its designer Robert Garbe even wanted to see it used in express train service, but approval for 110 km/h failed due to its rough running at high speeds. The 1,180 hp two-cylinder locomotives reached 100 km/h and were considered undemanding and reliable pulling horses for passenger trains. They also proved their worth in front of light and fast freight trains. Of the 3,444 examples that were built for more…

BR18.4 / BR18.5 Bayr. S3/6  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

In 1908 the locomotive factory J.A. Maffei was commissioned by the Royal Bavarian State Railway to develop a new express locomotive based on the IVf delivered to the Baden State Railway. The series a-c and f-i with 1870 mm high driving wheels were designated as series 18.4 by the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG, as were the series d and e equipped with 2000 mm driving wheels. The four-cylinder compound locomotives produced 1,770 hp and reached 120 km/h with very good driving more…

BR 01  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

The BR 01 had been the first type of the Einheitslok-Progamm of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG). Starting in 1925 the DRG ordered 231 locos. The 2 cylinder 01 reached a maximum speed of 120 (later 130 km/h). Both German Railways DB and DR needed the 01 after 2nd World War so the modernized 50 (DB) and 35 (DR) locos of BR 01 e.g. with new boilers. Nevertheless original 01 stayed in service until the early 1970s.

BR 03 DRG  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

The Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft had the class 03 developed to supplement the heavy express train locomotive 01, which was designed for operation on well-developed main lines. Between 1930 and 1937, 298 examples of the 1980 hp two-cylinder locomotive with a top speed of 130 km/h were built. In front of light and medium-heavy passenger trains, the three-couplers impressed with their good driving characteristics, but in many DB departments in the 1950s the travel times of the express trains more…

BR 23  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

In 1949 the Deutsche Bundesbahn had ordered 105 locos of Class 23 steam locomotives to replace old-fashioned Prussian P8 locos. The 2 cylinder locos developed 1785 HP and reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h. They were used for passenger service, sometimes also for fast trains. Last 23 quitted service in 1975, but eight locos can be found at railroad museums in Germany and the Nederlands.

BR 50  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

In 1939 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG received 1st of more than 3100 samples of 2-10-0 two-cylinder steam loco BR 50. The loco developed 1625 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. With its axle load of just 15,2 tons the locos were used even on branch lines with light weight rails. Locos of DB quitted service in 1977, the DR locos were used for ten more years.

BR 80  LokSound 5 European Sound files N XL L M4

In order to replace uneconomical old worn out locomotives in shunting service, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG also included a shunting locomotive with an axle load of 18 t in the Einheitslok program. From 1928 the DRG put 39 copies of the 575 hp three-coupler into service. After the Second World War, 21 machines remained with the DR and 17 locomotives with the DB. Despite convincing operating characteristics, the DB stopped its 80 until 1965, as the new V60s were available in more…

BR01.10 Kohle  LokSound 5 European Sound files 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…
