Comment: If you go down the Danube, you'll discover a Greek marble temple about ten kilometers / 6 miles beyond. Leo von Klenze was inspired by the Parthenon in Athens when he was given the contract to build a hall of fame. This building was given the name "Walhalla" from the home of the German gods. King Ludwig was able to proclaim on October 18, 18742 twenty-six years after the start of the work: "May Walhalla be conducive to strengthening and increasing German virtue! May all Germans, regardless of their heritage, always feel that they have a common Father Land." The busts of 126 important personalities stand in this hall that is worth seeing. Most of them come from German language areas, among them Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Otto von Guericke, and Johann Gregor Mendel, Johannes Gutenberg and Jakob Fugger, August II of Saxony and Friedrich II of Prussia, Immanuel Kant and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz as well as Sophie Scholl and Ulrich von Hutten. In addition, 64 memorial tablets evoke great personalities such as Hildegard von Bingen and Albertus Magnus, Roswitha von Gandersheim and Walther von der Vogelweide, Heinrich III and Hermann the Cheruscan as well as Peter Henlein and cathedral builder Gerhard. Some visitors will surely miss many prominent people such as Friedrich List. This does not harm the standing however of this unusual memorial. A complete list of the personalities honored in Walhalla can be found on the Internet at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walhalla

DB cl 110 Pants Crease Electric Locomotive

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 110 with streamlined ends ("Pants Crease" look). B-B wheel arrangement. Built starting in 1963. Use: High quality long distance service.

Model: The locomotive has a digital connector and a motor with a flywheel. 4 axles powered. The locomotive has a close coupler mechanism, and the pantographs work both mechanically and electrically. This is the typical rebuilt Era IV version of the locomotive with no streamlining on the buffer beams, individual side vents, and a different rain gutter. Length over the buffers 103 mm / 4-1/16".

Comment: The high quality class E 10.3 locomotives were improved and rebuilt a number of times over the course of their lives which also influenced the external looks of the locomotive considerably. The streamlined buffers were replaced by complete buffer beams and the characteristic bands of vents made way for new, more efficient vents. The original rain gutters were shortened and the grab irons on the ends were improved. The result was a locomotive that differed even at first glance from its original appearance, yet without abandoning its characteristic features. These timeless units are still in service today in commuter service.

Comment: The German State Railroad's series of standard design locomotives also included a fast Mikado design freight locomotive. In 1936 the Berlin firm of Schwartzkopff delivered the first unit of the class 41. This locomotive proved its abilities pulling more than freight trains. It turned out that the railroad had a true general-purpose locomotive for medium heavy trains. After 1945 the DB used its 216 units in general-purpose service pulling passenger and freight trains.

This locomotive is the ideal motive power for the heavy-duty flat cars with steel slabs from the 15281 display.

One-time series.

Comment: In 1957, the Swiss Federal Railways and the Dutch State Railways placed identical TEE diesel powered rail car trains into service for the newly created TEE network. Next to the German Federal Railroad's VT 11.5, these 5 train sets were the stars of Europe's railroads where it was a question of comfort and prestige. These four-unit trains consisted of a powered end car with a performance level of 2,000 horsepower, a compartment car, a dining car, and a cab control car with an open seating area. The powered end cars were built by Werkspoor in the Netherlands and the cars were built by SIG in Switzerland. The shape of the ends of the powered cars and cab control cars reminded people of Dutch designs, and the intermediate cars had the features of Swiss passenger cars. With a total length of 97.16 meters / 318 feet 9-3/16 inches, a train set offered space for 114 passengers in first class and 32 in the dining car. With a maximum speed of 140 km/h / 88 mph, these elegant trains were used on the Amsterdam - Zürich route (TEE "Edelweiss") and Amsterdam - Paris route (TEE "toile du Nord" / "North Star"), and later also between Brussels and Paris (TEE "Oiseau Bleu" / "Blue Bird"). Later, these trains were also used as a TEE connection between Paris and Zürich. And, finally later they were used as the TEE "Bavaria" between Zürich and Munich. In 1976, four sets were sold to Canada and ran on the Ontario Northland as the "Northlander" on the route between Timmins and Toronto. The powered end cars were gradually replaced by American FP7 diesels and were scrapped. Five cars are now back in Europe and are waiting for an overhaul to turn them back into the RAm TEE I.

DB cl 144 Electric Locomotive

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 144. B-B wheel arrangement, built starting in 1932 as the E 44 for the German State Railroad Company. Use: Passenger and freight trains.

Model: The locomotive comes with a digital connector. 4 axles powered. Traction tires. The pantographs can be raised and lowered and can take power from catenary. Length over the buffers 96 mm / 3-3/4".

Comment: After an interruption due to the great economic crisis, the electrification of the German State Railroad's network was continued starting in 1930. New, powerful locomotives were needed for the new routes. In the meantime the German railroad industry had developed new concepts and prototypes for modern, general-purpose locomotives. The design from Siemens showed clear progress compared to the previous provincial railroad designs that had merely been developed further. This unit was designed as a light weight general-purpose locomotive and was built on a welded frame, mounted on trucks with integrated buffer beams and powered with axle-suspended motors. This gave this compact locomotive a total weight of 78 metric tons without the need for pilot trucks and still below the critical 20 metric ton limit for axle loads. The modern motors put out 2,200 kilowatts / 2,950 horsepower, which was available directly at the axles without the need for an expensive gear drive. The maximum speed reached on level track was 90 km/h or 56 mph. The first unit was successfully tested and placed into service by the German State Railroad as early as 1930 as the E 44 001. Additional, regular production locomotives with a maximum speed of 80 km/h or 50 mph were ordered immediately, initially for the route from Stuttgart to Augsburg (with the Geislingen Grade). The German State Railroad purchased a total of 174 regular production locomotives, of which 45 remained in East Germany with most of the rest in West Germany. Seven more locomotives were built new for the German Federal Railroad and several were equipped with push/pull controls or resistance brakes. The indestructible E 44 was in regular use well into the 1980s - at the end as the 144 (DB) and 244 (DR).

Comment: In the mid-Sixties, the class V 200 diesel locomotives were built for the first time. These units were built in the USSR for the German State Railroad and were used in medium duty passenger and freight service. Because of their origin and the loud exhaust sound, they were jokingly nicknamed "Taigatrommel" or "Taiga Drum".

DR Bi-Level 4-Car Set, green

Prototype: 4 German State Railroad (DR) type DBv bi-level cars, 2nd class. Built starting in 1952. Use: Commuter service.

Model: Total length over the buffers 451 mm / 17-3/4".

Comment: Four-Part Bi-Level Unit Train The first modern railroad bi-level cars ran in Germany starting in May of 1936 on the Lübeck-Büchener Railroad (LBE), which fell victim to the nationalization of the LBE at the beginning of 1938 as well as World War II that followed later. The bi-level idea did not come back extensively into use in East Germany until shortly after the end of the war and then due to the marginal economic conditions. Building on the old plans, the now Görlitz People's Plant for Car Construction (formerly WUMAG) developed two and four unit bi-level trains for the German State Railroad in 1952. The four-part, 73.4 meter / 240 foot 9-3/4 inch long unit trains, designated as the type DBv offered seating for 901 passengers initially. The seats were cushioned with foam rubber and covered with artificial leather. These car sets ran on two-axle end trucks as well as on three-axle Jakobs trucks between the cars. The car bodies were done with lightweight, all-steel, self-supporting construction. Eight generously configured entry areas provided access to the trains, whereby the entry areas for the end cars were done with even roomier dimensions for storing luggage. Diaphragms protected the corridor connections between the cars. These four-part bi-level trains were built in several series until 1970. These unit trains were used with shuttle train equipment in commuter service and later also in S-Bahn service. The last units ran in Germany until 1995. They were also sold in large numbers to other railroads of the former Socialist Economic Area and were used in part way past the turn of the millennium.
