Comment: The high-speed traffic with the newly constructed routes rich in tunnels makes a heavy demand on the railroad's safety concepts. The tunnel rescue trains are an essential part of these concepts. These trains are designed to cope with the extraordinary situation of a burning train inside a tunnel. These trains have other tasks in addition to the actual transport of the rescue crews to the accident site and in addition to fighting the fire with the fire extinguishing equipment carried on the rescue train. The presence of smoke and the lack of oxygen in the tunnel mean that the airtight cars in the rescue train must have an independent source of power and air. Locomotive No. 1 is even equipped with a video camera and a thermal image camera. A passenger air lock with protection against smoke enables the evacuation of injured passengers. They are brought into the transport car after they have been attended to medically in the first aid car. If this car is full, the shuttle part of the train, Locomotive 2 and Transport Car 2, uncouple from the rest of the train, the main part of the latter, and proceed to the tunnel portal. The shuttle part then goes back to the main part of the train and couples to it, so that the connections are airtight. Trains of this type are stationed in Kornwestheim, Mannheim, Würzburg, Fulda, Kassel, and Hildesheim to ensure coverage of the newly constructed routes. Each rescue train is ready to go around the clock, as long as passenger trains are underway on the newly constructed routes. All of the equipment on these trains is kept at operating temperature for this purpose; working temperatures are maintained in the Transport and First Aid car, and the fire extinguishing materials are protected against frost.

Brake hoses, prototypical couplers and protective cylinder rod sleeves can be installed on the locomotive. The train includes 2 pairs of "Leig Unit" freight cars. Both cars are permanently coupled together and are connected by a diaphragm. The cars are well detailed and with large lettering for "Stückgut Schnellverkehr / Less-than-Carload-Lot Service". Total length over the buffers 75.0 cm / 29-1/2".

Highlights:
  • Can motor with a bell-shaped armature, in the boiler.
  • Detailed steam locomotive sound.
  • "Leig Unit" pair of cars as new tooling.
Comment: The increase in freight traffic by road caused the German State Railroad Company to accelerate freight service and to make it more attractive. This was achieved by the introduction of "lightweight freight trains" for less-than-carload-lot service. "Leig Units" usually consisted of two 2-axle boxcars that were connected by a diaphragm. The advantage to this was the sorting of freight in route. The German Federal Railroad could not do without these fast freight trains and even purchased new double cars authorized for a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 63 mph. These well known freight trains with their striking lettering "Stückgut-Schnellverkehr" did not disappear until 1978.

Comment: Class 24 - Prairie Pony in Prussia. Between 1926 and 1938, a total of 95 units of the class 24 were purchased for the flat, long branch lines in East and West Prussia. These locomotives were nicknamed the "Prairie Pony" and were designed as a passenger locomotive, but were soon used as a general-purpose locomotive. This 16.96 meter / 55 foot 7-11/16 inch long locomotive reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph. It was a parallel class to the class 64 and gave very good results in the tasks assigned to it. The division of Germany and the areas surrendered to Poland resulted in 38 units finally coming to the German Federal Railroad, where they continued to perform valuable service on branch lines, often with "Donnerbüchsen / Thunder Box" passenger cars. Gradually, they were replaced in many locations by the class VT 95 and VT 98 red rail busses, were retired and scrapped. They last home base was Rheydt; there they left regular service in 1966 on the German Federal Railroad. In Poland the 34 locomotives left there after World War II were indispensable up to 1976. Four Prairie Ponies remain preserved as museum pieces; one of them is from the roster of the Polish State Railroad (PKB).

Comment: The Class 232 - Ludmilla in Germany. In contrast to the West, where electric motive power was favored, the majority of Eastern Europe railroads concentrated on diesel locomotives to replace uneconomical steam operation. A new family of large diesel locomotives from Russia, among them the present day Germany Railroad, Inc.'s class 232, was purchased between 1972 and 1982 in consultation with the RGW in several series for East Germany's German State Railroad. This immense, six-axle, almost 21 meter / 69 foot long diesel electric locomotive with its 6 traction motors had a continuous rating of up to 2,940 kilowatts / 3,943 horsepower and a maximum speed of up to 140 km/h / 88 mph, depending on the series. These locomotives were used in East Germany for both freight trains and express trains as long as the locomotives had train heating. Due to delivery problems from the Soviet builder in Woroschilowgrad, the latter were not installed in all locomotives. Their great weight and axle load of 20 metric tons did not allow them to be used everywhere, and the DR had to use the classes 118 and 119 depending on the reconstruction of a route. The DR crews gave this Russian locomotive the name "Ludmilla", which apparently came from the maintenance facility in Leipzig and which is still popularly used for this family of locomotives. There were 709 units of the class 132, the latter class 232, built. They were taken over by the DB AG - also due to their built-in train heating - and are still used in many areas, while the other series have been retired or sold. Several locomotives were completely overhauled and given new motors. They represent the new classes 233, 234, and 241 and provide service in Germany along with class 232 Russian Ludmilla locomotives.

In Honor of the Old Master - Carl Bellingrodt, born April 7, 1897 in Cologne, was undoubtedly one of the most famous German railroad photographers. He began to photograph various subjects as early as before World War I, but soon specialized in landscapes and above all railroad photography. Although he was a government official and pursued photography as a hobby, he amassed more than 30,000 images over the course of his activity, and many of them rank among the classic masterpieces. In addition to his systematically generated groups of images of entire classes of locomotives, his images of the railroad in a landscape as well as his extremely dense photographs of stations with their typical environment achieved near cult status. In this manner Carl Bellingrodt set the style for many other railroad photographers, many of whom still make the pilgrimage to the beloved "Bellingrodt photography sites" in order to photograph the trains of our time in the classic perspective of the old master. Märklin is issuing a special five-part series of sought after H0 models in memory of this railroad photograph pioneer, who died on September 24, 1971 in Wuppertal and who will certainly live on in the memory of many people for a long time. One locomotive per year will be produced as a limited series in exquisite detailing and with premium technical features. Each of these models will be delivered with a decorated display case with the Bellingrodt photograph of the locomotive in question mounted on the back wall of the case. In front of this in the lower part of the case is a glass display floor on which the model can be attractively presented. This will allow a direct comparison between the Bellingrodt photograph of the prototype locomotive and the exquisite reproduction as a model. The glass front wall offers effective protection against dust.

Comment: In 1882, Henschel delivered the first example of a saturated steam locomotive with 6 driving wheels for branch line service. The T 3 impressed people with its easy maintenance, robustness and versatility. The jury at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 was also convinced. It awarded a prize to this 11 year old design. Even 13 years later locomotive builders were still bold enough to exhibit the T 3. In Milan, Hanomag presented the last locomotive, equipped with a Lentz poppet valve system as an experiment. The exhibition efforts paid off for the companies involved. Locomotives of similar design went to China, France, Greece, and Italy. The German State Railroad designated it the class 89.70. In Germany, in addition to the Prussian State Railways, numerous private railroads purchased the T 3.

Comment: The Kittel - A Durable Steam Powered Rail Car. As early as the end of the 19th century, procurement was begun of a first series of seven steam powered rail cars that were chiefly run on branch lines in the southwest part of Germany. Eugen Kittel, chief mechanical engineer for the Royal Württemberg State Railways (KWStE) designed a more efficient boiler, which led in 1905 to the order for another 10 steam powered rail cars in Württemberg. The first series was rebuilt accordingly. At the time of the German State Railroad, the remaining steam powered rail cars were designated under the road numbers 9 Stuttgart to 14 Stuttgart. Another series of steam powered rail cars under the class 121a was delivered in 1914/15 for the Grand Ducal Baden State Railways, and they were later designated on the DRG under the road numbers CidT 1 to 8. Two steam powered rail cars from this Baden series were acquired by the German Federal Railroad after 1945, and they were painted in the crimson color scheme customary for powered rail cars. In 1951 and 1953, these two steam powered rail cars from the provincial railroad period were retired from service on the German Federal Railroad.

Comment: The "Koploper" In the mid-Seventies, the Dutch State Railways needed new material to modernize its express passenger service. Trains with flexible utilization are required in this densely populated country in order to manage service into the urban areas. From 1977 to 1994, a total of 144 powered rail cars, the "Koploper" family, were placed into service. These powered rail cars could be quickly and easily separated and coupled at stops. It also became important that passengers be able to change from one unit to the other, when the train was in operation. The engineer's cabs were thus quickly raised up one level and these powered rail cars were equipped with crossovers at the ends. This feature gives the "Koplopers" a brawny, unusual look. The "Koplopers" were built by the firm s Talbot, CEM Oerlikon, and Holec, and were designated by the Dutch State Railways as the classes 4000 and 4200, which differed from one another in their motors. A short while ago the "Koplopers" underwent modernization and were equipped with air conditioning and facilities for handicapped people. These powered rail cars can reach 160 km/h / 100 mph and are run in the classic NS paint scheme, but they have also been used as advertising surfaces such as is currently being done for the Olympic Games in 2008 in Beijing. The "Koplopers" are certainly a successful development in rail vehicle technology and with their unusual looks they are clearly leaving their stamp on passenger service in the Netherlands.

Comment: The Three-Phase Pioneer. The class 120 marked the technological breakthrough to three-phase current propulsion systems. This principle carried with it the promise of compact, largely non-wearing motors without commutators, wear rings, brushes, and mechanical contacts. Because a broad range of torque and speed could be mastered with three-phase current technology, the performance specifications for this new development were formulated rather like a long wish list. The class 120 was intended to pull 200 km/h / 125 mph fast InterCity trains and 5,400 metric ton freight trains, and was also to be equipped with push/pull controls and electric regenerative brakes. In 1977, the DB ordered five experimental units that were exhaustively probed on test stands, during test runs, and in operational use. Startup, tractive effort, acceleration, running characteristics, braking performance, power requirements, and stability under a load were part of the program. Comparison tests with other makes of locomotives as well as start-up tests on the Lötschberg and Semmering grades confirmed the performance capabilities of the technology. The speed record was 265 km/h / 166 mph. New developments flowed in during the experimental phases such as microprocessors for faster control and monitoring. Components were improved again and again until all five units were brought to the same technical level in 1982 and were pronounced ready for regular production. During the development phase of several years the procurement policy changed. Instead of all-round locomotives, special locomotives were again preferred on the basis of common development platforms with many parts identical in construction. Only a first production run of 60 units of the class 120 was purchased. The prototypes continue to be used for test purposes, and the regular production locomotives prove themselves in daily operation.

The interior lighting is supplied with power by means of a continuous electrical connection through the entire train. The pantographs are only mechanically functional; they do not pick up power from catenary. The headlights / marker lights together with the interior lighting will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The direction-dependent long-distance headlights change over with the direction of travel, and they along with sound functions for an air horn, station announcements, and a warning tone for the doors being closed can be controlled digitally with the 6021 Control Unit or with Märklin Systems. Train length 142.2 cm / 56".

Highlights:
  • New tooling for the air conditioning equipment in the roof area.
Comment: ICE 3 MF - Au Revoir Frankfurt - Guten Tag Paris. Europe appears to be coming closer together on the transportation technical level as well as the political level. The keen competition from air lines is prompting the DB AG and to attempt to overcome their borders and open the route network in each country to high speed passenger service. After a very long (6 years) and costly authorization phase, everything was finally ready on June 10: The ICE 3 MF ("MF" stands for Multiple System France) is running between Frankfurt/Main and Paris. It runs at a maximum speed of 320 km/h / 200 mph on the new French high speed route LGV Est, and the train arrives in just 4 hours at the Gare de l'Est station in the French capital. Due to the different technical systems used for the the ICE and the TGV respectively, 120,000 kilometers / 75,000 miles of test runs and several conversions on the trains were necessary so that the German trains could run with no problems on the 25 kilovolt routes in France. Most importantly, the train had to be adapted to the French train control system and safety equipment such as fog signals, warning lights, red flags, and flares for stopping trains coming from the other direction are now on board. The train also underwent a change in the control of the eddy current brakes that had already caused problems in the authorization process in Belgium, as well as changes to the doors, and the high tension layout. The trains were improved aerodynamically in the areas of the car diaphragms and trucks in order to prevent damage from flying roadbed ballast. A select locomotive engineer team also had to obtain permission to run the train on the French routes so that the ICE could run between the countries without time-consuming crew changes. The authorization process cost the two state railroads 28 million Euros, which signifies for many business travelers a considerable improvement in the transportation services offered and that brings Europe one more step closer together.

Comment: The French coal beds in Lorraine ensured the supply of energy for Paris for many years and particularly in the immediate postwar period. Very heavy coal trains went daily from the mines to the capital city. A second locomotive crew rode in a crew car specially set up for the purpose so that the relatively long route could be traversed as quickly as possible without long intermediate stops. The crew car for the second crew was a so-called "camping car" and the second crew could spell the first crew during the run. At the end of the Forties, the coal cars consisted of all kinds of different designs of two-axle gondolas.

Comment: T44 - The Power of the North. In the Sixties, the older classes of Swedish diesel locomotives were no longer able to meet the railroad's requirements. The cars had become longer and heavier, thereby increasing the demand for modern diesel switch engine. The Swedish State Railways ordered a switch engine with a B-B wheel arrangement from the firm NOHAB (Trollhättan, Sweden). This four-axle, 76 metric ton heavy locomotive has a length of 15.4 meters / 50 feet 6-5/16 inches, a power output of 1,235 kilowatts / 1,656 horsepower and reaches a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 63 mph. The class T44 has given reliable results since being placed into service in 1968, but it also used for light freight trains out on the line. The range of its tasks is approximately comparable to that of the German Federal Railroad's class 290. The class T44 has had several paint schemes during its service life. Currently, it is run in Sweden in the SJ's attractive blue paint scheme. The really classic scheme is surely the orange/blue version from Era IV.

Comment: Maffei delivered 107 locomotives with four driving wheels and a single-axle pilot truck to the Bavarian State Railways between 1863 and 1871. Technically, the B VI differed only slightly from the predecessor class, the B V. The driving wheel diameter was increased from 1,462 mm / 57-9/16" to 1,616 mm / 63-5/8" and the service weight went up one metric ton to 31 tons. Likes its predecessor, the B VI could be fired with coal as well as with peat. After the installation of replacement boilers, the permissible steam pressure went from 116 to 145 pounds per square inch. The B VI was used primarily to pull passenger trains in regular service. It was soon demoted by faster locomotives to less important service. The B VI began to be pulled from service as early as 1895 and this process went on into the Twenties. Two units active in maintenance train service survived into the temporary numbering system for the German State Railroad as road numbers 34 7461 and 34 7362, and they were soon retired after the new numbering system took effect in 1925. One unit, 34 316, wrote railroad history. This locomotive bore the name "Tristan" and pulled the Royal Court Train for Ludwig II, when his Majesty went on a trip.

Comment: Baden IV h - The Complicated Beauty. In 1915, the Grand Ducal Baden State Railways order 20 locomotives with a 4-6-2 wheel arrangement (Pacific) from Maffei in Munich in order to operate the Rhine Valley line more efficiently. This locomotive type was designated as the IV h and was planned mainly for use between Mannheim and Basle. The design was therefore laid out purely as an express locomotive for flat terrain. The driving wheel diameter of 2,100 mm / 82-11/16" was exceeded only by road no. 18 201 of the German State Railroad Company for a locomotive of its wheel arrangement. The maximum speed was set at 110 km/h / 69 mph however due to the brake technology of the time. Due to the events of World War I, this locomotive was built in 3 series from 1918 to 1920. When the last class IV h locomotives were delivered by the builder in 1920, the Baden State Railways were already incorporated into the German State Railroad, which took all 20 locomotives into its roster as the class 18.3. These units were stationed at the maintenance facility in Offenburg and were the flagship express locomotive on the Rhine Valley line. They could often be seen pulling the German State Railroad's new luxury train, the Rheingold. Maffei designed four-cylinder compound running gear for the IV h, whose inner cylinders were positioned far to the front and gave the locomotive its unmistakable look. Although the boiler for the class IV h was the largest of its time in Germany, its reserves were not all that great, and the water volume was relatively small. The super heater surface was also small in dimension such that the steam could only reach a temperature of 330ø Celsius / 626ø Fahrenheit. These facts made the water and coal consumption rather high and were considerably greater than that of the later German State Railroad Company standard design locomotives. The tender also contributed to the characteristic look of the locomotive. It was unusually short with a truck and with two axles mounted close to one another in the frame of the tender. During its service life, the Baden IV h was not very popular with either the locomotive crews or the railroad's managers because of its complicated technology, and it was replaced relatively quickly by the new standard design 01. It was transferred in groups to North Germany until all 20 locomotives were stationed in Bremen in 1942. They were used primarily in the area of the North German flatlands, an area they were best suited for, and where the new locomotive crews could better get use to the complicated system of compound high and low pressure cylinders. The maximum speed for these locomotives was increased to 140 km/h / 88 mph after the installation of stronger brakes, and the performance of the class 18.3 left many newer express locomotives in the dust. Except for one unit, all of the class 18.3 locomotives survived World War II. The new German Federal Railroad had no use for them and they were retired. With the reconstruction of the infrastructure and the normalization of the rail service, the need for fast experimental locomotives grew, and the German Federal Railroad was forced to overhaul three of the stored class 18.3 locomotives. These locomotives were modified accordingly and gave many years of valuable service for the Locomotive Experimental Bureau in Minden. Road no. 18 316 reached the speed of 162 km/h / 101 mph during a test run in Austria on the line from Kufstein to Wörgl and became the fastest provincial railroad locomotive. The last two locomotives were stored in 1969 and these beautiful units remain preserved as monuments for the provincial railroad era.

Comment: Baden IV h - The Complicated Beauty. In 1915, the Grand Ducal Baden State Railways order 20 locomotives with a 4-6-2 wheel arrangement (Pacific) from Maffei in Munich in order to operate the Rhine Valley line more efficiently. This locomotive type was designated as the IV h and was planned mainly for use between Mannheim and Basle. The design was therefore laid out purely as an express locomotive for flat terrain. The driving wheel diameter of 2,100 mm / 82-11/16" was exceeded only by road no. 18 201 of the German State Railroad Company for a locomotive of its wheel arrangement. The maximum speed was set at 110 km/h / 69 mph however due to the brake technology of the time. Due to the events of World War I, this locomotive was built in 3 series from 1918 to 1920. When the last class IV h locomotives were delivered by the builder in 1920, the Baden State Railways were already incorporated into the German State Railroad, which took all 20 locomotives into its roster as the class 18.3. These units were stationed at the maintenance facility in Offenburg and were the flagship express locomotive on the Rhine Valley line. They could often be seen pulling the German State Railroad's new luxury train, the Rheingold. Maffei designed four-cylinder compound running gear for the IV h, whose inner cylinders were positioned far to the front and gave the locomotive its unmistakable look. Although the boiler for the class IV h was the largest of its time in Germany, its reserves were not all that great, and the water volume was relatively small. The super heater surface was also small in dimension such that the steam could only reach a temperature of 330ø Celsius / 626ø Fahrenheit. These facts made the water and coal consumption rather high and were considerably greater than that of the later German State Railroad Company standard design locomotives. The tender also contributed to the characteristic look of the locomotive. It was unusually short with a truck and with two axles mounted close to one another in the frame of the tender. During its service life, the Baden IV h was not very popular with either the locomotive crews or the railroad's managers because of its complicated technology, and it was replaced relatively quickly by the new standard design 01. It was transferred in groups to North Germany until all 20 locomotives were stationed in Bremen in 1942. They were used primarily in the area of the North German flatlands, an area they were best suited for, and where the new locomotive crews could better get use to the complicated system of compound high and low pressure cylinders. The maximum speed for these locomotives was increased to 140 km/h / 88 mph after the installation of stronger brakes, and the performance of the class 18.3 left many newer express locomotives in the dust. Except for one unit, all of the class 18.3 locomotives survived World War II. The new German Federal Railroad had no use for them and they were retired. With the reconstruction of the infrastructure and the normalization of the rail service, the need for fast experimental locomotives grew, and the German Federal Railroad was forced to overhaul three of the stored class 18.3 locomotives. These locomotives were modified accordingly and gave many years of valuable service for the Locomotive Experimental Bureau in Minden. Road no. 18 316 reached the speed of 162 km/h / 101 mph during a test run in Austria on the line from Kufstein to Wörgl and became the fastest provincial railroad locomotive. The last two locomotives were stored in 1969 and these beautiful units remain preserved as monuments for the provincial railroad era.

Comment: VT 10.5 - "Senator" by Day, "Komet" by Night. At the start of the Fifties, the German Federal Railroad (DB) developed two articulated powered rail car trains for long distance service. Franz Kruckenberg, who had already made a name for himself in the Thirties with fast vehicles, participated in the design. In the development of the two powered rail car trains, he was able to go back to valuable experience that had already been made with the Rail Zeppelin and the SVT 135 155: high speed resulting from largely all-aluminum lightweight construction. These two articulated powered rail car trains were presented for the first time at the German Transportation Exhibition (DVA) in Munich in 1953: The VT 10 501, built by Linke-Hofmann-Busch as a daytime train "Senator" for the DB, and the VT 10 551, built by Wegmann as the overnight train "Komet" for the German Sleeping Car and Dining Car Company (DSG). In addition to their use and paint scheme, these two trains also had design differences. While the cars for the "Senator" were equipped with single-axle running gear, the "Komet" had Jacobs trucks between the cars. The end cars on both trains each had a two-axle power truck. MAN diesel motors with originally a performance of 118 kilowatts / 158 horsepower, later with 154 kilowatts / 206 horsepower, were used in the motor cars. The maximum speed was 120 km/h / 75 mph; a planned increase to 160 km/h / 100 mph was not carried out. The power transmission was done hydraulically by means of a four-speed transmission. The "Senator" offered its passengers 135 seats in 1st class, 24 of them reclining seats. The trains went into regular service with the beginning of the summer schedule in 1954. The daytime train, road no. VT 10 501 as Ft 41/42 "Senator" on the route Frankfurt/Main - Hamburg, the overnight train as Ft 49/50 "Komet" between Hamburg and Basle (starting in the summer of 1955 to Zürich). The running characteristics of the overnight train received a positive evaluation. Those of the daytime train were the opposite according to DB documents: "All things considered, it is apparent that the freight car characteristics cannot be removed from this train." The "Senator" was in use until June of 1956, was rebuilt several times and tested in experimental runs. In 1959, it was taken out of operation and in 1962 was scrapped. All of the cars from the two trains were scrapped except for the intermediate car VT 10 551i from the overnight train that is used by Nürnberg railroad enthusiasts as a home for their club. The experiences with the two Kruckenberg designs fed the development of the subsequent DB VT 11.5 TEE powered rail car train.

Comment: The V 300 - A One-Off with 6 Axles. The firm Krauss-Maffei built three type ML 2200 6-axle locomotives based on the German Federal Railroad's successful V 200 for the Yugoslavian State Railroad. Perhaps in the hope of additional orders, a fourth, identical locomotive with the C-C wheel arrangement was built at Krauss-Maffei's own cost as a demonstrator unit. This locomotive was presented and offered in a striking builder's paint scheme to the German Federal Railroad among others. After several tests, the motor performance for this locomotive was increased and was designated internally at Krauss-Maffei as the type ML 3000 C'C'. It took long negotiations to move the German Federal Railroad to buy this one-off model and put it on its roster as the class V 300 001. It was painted in the elegant crimson / gray color scheme of its two-axle sibling and was used primarily in premium express train service. In 1968, it was given the computer number 230 001-0 and this impressive machine could be seen in its last years in service between Hamburg and Westerland on the Isle of Sylt, where it also pulled the popular auto trains between Niebüll and Westerland. In 1975, road no. 230 001-0 was put in storage, and the German Federal Railroad tried to sell it, unsuccessfully however, to Italy in 1977. In 1978, it came back to Germany and was finally scrapped two years later.

An express train to go with this locomotive can be made up with the cars, item nos. 43919 and 43928.

Comment: Class E 41 - The Firecracker of the German Federal Railroad. In 1950, the German Federal Railroad decided to go ahead with the urgent modernization of its motive power with the purchase of electric locomotives with predominantly standardized components and contracted with all of the important locomotive builders to come up with appropriate suggestions. The goal was a locomotive for freight service in order to relieve the E 94 and a general-purpose locomotive such as was known with the well proven E 44. Another requirement to the builders concerned the engineer's cabs: For the first time the engineer was to do his work seated, which meant an immense improvement for engineers. The result of this request for bids was five experimental locomotives for the class E 10.0. However, exhaustive tests soon revealed that two prototypes would not be suitable for the expected tasks. Officials at the German Federal Railroad therefore decided to have Siemens/Krauss Maffei develop an express locomotive and a freight locomotive, the classes E10 and E 40, AEG/Krupp to develop a heavy freight locomotive, the class E 50, and BBC/Henschel to develop a commuter locomotive, the class E 41. A total of 451 class E 41 locomotives were purchased between 1956 and 1971. For several decades they left their stamp on more than just the commuter service from the Bavarian Alps to the German coast. This successful design can be considered as a general-purpose locomotive, since it was used as motive power for practically every kind of train service during its long service life. It did not last long in the rigorous S-Bahn service, because it did not have electric brakes required for it. Its traditional task remained commuter service, in particular in push/pull operation with "Silberlinge / Silver Coins" commuter cars. Due to the required low axle load distributed over 2 two-axle trucks, the E 41 could be used with no problem on electrified branch lines. The 4 traction motors on the locomotive represented a further development of the ET 30, and the Siemens-Schuckert Plant / SSW was responsible for the drive gear. They equipped the E 41 like the other standard design locomotives with a rubber ring drive gear system. The oil-cooled transformer was equipped with a relay layout on the low voltage side, which was the source of a characteristic noise on the class E 41. This locomotive soon picked up its nicknames "Champagne Cork" or "Firecracker" on the German Federal Railroad. More than a few railroad passengers, upon hearing this sound, thought the locomotive was damaged and were more or less irritated about it. The maximum speed for this 15.62 meter / 51 foot 3 inch long locomotive was 120 km/h / 75 mph. When the German Federal Railroad raised the maximum speed for express trains at the end off the Fifties to 140 km/h / 88 mph, E 41 locomotives coming after that were only painted in green, since the elegant blue was reserved only for fast locomotives in long distance service. During its entire service life, the class E 41, from 1968 on the "141", had double-arm pantographs. Otherwise, it changed externally as the result of rebuilding and ran in Germany from the Alps to the North with three or five lights at each end, with or without rain gutters, with rounded or square cooling vents and in the color schemes that changed over time. The train safety systems were also adapted along the way and the "firecracker" was considered a proven, reliable design right up to the end of its service. At the start of the Nineties, the class 141 was being increasingly replaced by the class 143, and its roster decreased more due to the switch to powered rail cars for commuter service. The official farewell to the class 141 took place in February of 2006 in Braunschweig, but the last operating district for several locomotives was Frankfurt/Main, where they did not leave active service on the German Railroad, Inc. until the end of 2006. Several of these popular locomotives have remained preserved and you can still hear the "Firecracker" of the German Federal Railroad at least on museum runs.

Officials at the German Federal Railroad therefore decided to have Siemens/Krauss Maffei develop an express locomotive and a freight locomotive, the classes E10 and E 40, AEG/Krupp to develop a heavy freight locomotive, the class E 50, and BBC/Henschel to develop a commuter locomotive, the class E 41. A total of 451 class E 41 locomotives were purchased between 1956 and 1971. For several decades they left their stamp on more than just the commuter service from the Bavarian Alps to the German coast. This successful design can be considered as a general-purpose locomotive, since it was used as motive power for practically every kind of train service during its long service life. It did not last long in the rigorous S-Bahn service, because it did not have electric brakes required for it. Its traditional task remained commuter service, in particular in push/pull operation with "Silberlinge / Silver Coins" commuter cars. Due to the required low axle load distributed over 2 two-axle trucks, the E 41 could be used with no problem on electrified branch lines. The 4 traction motors on the locomotive represented a further development of the ET 30, and the Siemens-Schuckert Plant / SSW was responsible for the drive gear. They equipped the E 41 like the other standard design locomotives with a rubber ring drive gear system. The oil-cooled transformer was equipped with a relay layout on the low voltage side, which was the source of a characteristic noise on the class E 41. This locomotive soon picked up its nicknames "Champagne Cork" or "Firecracker" on the German Federal Railroad. More than a few railroad passengers, upon hearing this sound, thought the locomotive was damaged and were more or less irritated about it. The maximum speed for this 15.62 meter / 51 foot 3 inch long locomotive was 120 km/h / 75 mph. When the German Federal Railroad raised the maximum speed for express trains at the end off the Fifties to 140 km/h / 88 mph, E 41 locomotives coming after that were only painted in green, since the elegant blue was reserved only for fast locomotives in long distance service. During its entire service life, the class E 41, from 1968 on the "141", had double-arm pantographs. Otherwise, it changed externally as the result of rebuilding and ran in Germany from the Alps to the North with three or five lights at each end, with or without rain gutters, with rounded or square cooling vents and in the color schemes that changed over time. The train safety systems were also adapted along the way and the "firecracker" was considered a proven, reliable design right up to the end of its service. At the start of the Nineties, the class 141 was being increasingly replaced by the class 143, and its roster decreased more due to the switch to powered rail cars for commuter service. The official farewell to the class 141 took place in February of 2006 in Braunschweig, but the last operating district for several locomotives was Frankfurt/Main, where they did not leave active service on the German Railroad, Inc. until the end of 2006. Several of these popular locomotives have remained preserved and you can still hear the "Firecracker" of the German Federal Railroad at least on museum runs.

Comment: The Class 64 - The "Bubikopf" as a Jack-of-all-Trades (almost). Between 1928 and 1940, many famous locomotive builders in Germany participated in creating the class 64. As part of the standard design program for the German State Railroad Company, the class 64 was also closely related to other locomotive classes, in particular the class 24, which supplied the boiler and the frame for the driving wheels. A total of 520 units were built of this 12.4 meter / 40 foot 8-3/16 inch long standard design passenger tank locomotive with a 2-6-2T wheel arrangement. Due to its lower axle load and maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph, it could be used on almost all routes, and its successful design allowed a broad range of applications. Its home base was passenger train service, but lightweight fast passenger trains and many a freight train were also among its tasks, which it mastered with bravura. World War II and the division of Germany left behind deep traces in the case of the class 64. The German Federal Railroad acquired 278 locomotives; 115 went to the German State Railroad of East Germany and one locomotive remained in Austria. Like many other classes, the class 64 also acquired a nickname. A modern lady's hairstyle of the time (bobbed hair) was the inspiration for this sturdy, compact locomotive. To what extent this was flattering to the world of women or to the profession of hairstylists is debatable, but to the German Federal Railroad the class 64 was a reliable partner for crews and passengers right up to its retirement in 1974. The museum locomotives that have been preserved enjoy endless popularity.

Comment: The Class 1216 - Third Generation Alpine Bull. In the wake of the new political order in Europe, the transportation routes once again are going straight through the Alpine republic of Austria into the center of the continent. The Austrian Federal Railways could not and have not wanted to miss this connection and have prescribed themselves and their motive power roster a radical rejuvenating cure. In addition to a new design for the infrastructure, at present one of the largest and architecturally most spectacular train stations in Europe is being built, the locomotives and rolling stock have either been upgraded or newly purchased. The best known and most beautiful new development in terms of its shape is the "Taurus" locomotive family built by Siemens, the classes 1016, 1116, and 1216. The rollout of the 3rd generation of the class 1216 Alpine Bull took place on March 31, 2005 at the Siemens plant in Munich. A total of 50 locomotives were ordered by the ™BB and are to be used mainly in cross-border passenger and freight service. This four-system, three-phase current, general-purpose locomotive was derived largely from the Siemens ES 64 U4, designated on the German Railroad, Inc. as the class 189. Externally, the Taurus family genes are very much handed down. In terms of design, there have been several changes however such as four doors, a fairing for the costly roof equipment, LED lighting, and the upper front light now placed under the windshield. This four-motor locomotive is something over 19 meters / 62 feet 4-1/6 inches long, reaches a maximum speed of 230 km/h / 144 mph and has an axle load of 21.8 metric tons. Even before its time as the ™BB bull, road no. 1216 050 broke the world record for conventional locomotives set by the SNCF's road no. BB 9004 in 1955 at 331 km/h / 207 mph. This was done on September 2, 2006 on the Nrnberg-Ingolstadt new construction route between Kinding and Allersberg. Road no. 1216 050 ran, without extensive preparation to the track, catenary, or the locomotive, at a speed of 344 km/h / 215 mph and even reached 357 km/h / 223 mph during a second test run. At the end of 2007 it was transferred like the other 49 class 1216 locomotives to the ™BB and it will serve primarily in runs from Austria to Slovenia and Italy. The 1216 will come to Germany and Hungary as part of the new ™BB product "Railjet" and will link Vienna with Munich and Budapest on a regular schedule. The fast, powerful bulls of the 3rd generation cut a good figure in the immense, futuristic halls of the new Vienna Main Station and out on the line.
