One-time series for the Trix-Club.

Comment: Road No. 218 217-8 in the TEE Paint Scheme. The class 218 in service in its crimson paint scheme was chosen by the German Federal Railroad to be used as the test bed for the new paint scheme at that time. Two locomotives, road nos. 218 217-8 and 218 218-6, were the first units on the German Federal Railroad in 1974 to get the new paint scheme. The latter, road no. 218 218-6, was painted in ocean blue / beige, which then became the rule for most of the locomotive classes. Road no. 218 217-8, another unit, initially still without the striking exhaust hoods, was painted in red / beige in a scheme that was the same as on the sample, road no. 218 218-6: Only this was the TEE paint scheme. This elegant paint scheme was limited to only this one locomotive and it did nothing to gain it TEE status. Road no. 218 217-8 in red / beige performed its normal service far from the TEE routes and was a consistently popular theme for railroad photographers until it was repainted years later in 2002 the same as other locomotives.

Comment: Family Saga. The fate of steam locomotives in West Germany was sealed as early as the new type plan for the German Federal Railroad in 1955. The electrification of the rail network had long term priority; diesel locomotives were basically planned for traffic on non-electrified routes or routes still not electrified. The V 200 that had already been built was intended to replace the large class 01 or class 44 steam locomotives; a projected V 160 was supposed to replace medium size steam locomotives such as the class 38, 55, 78, and also the class 50. Compared to the dual-motored V 200, a powerful but expensive design, the V 160 was planned to be more economical with a single motor. New motors with 1,900 horsepower were already available as early as the development and decision phase, and they proved suitable in 10 prototypes built in 1960. The regular production locomotives in the well-known V 160 design, which actually stemmed from the V 320 that was never put into production, appeared in 1964. This defined the replacement for steam locomotives: The V 160 ran at 120 km/h / 75 mph and had steam heating. This made it the right unit for freight service and "old" passenger trains, but not for the new electrically heated passenger trains and for the speeds customary in electric locomotive operation. The V 160 had to become faster and needed electric heating. Several concepts were developed for this, the common feature of all being an extension of the locomotive's length from 16.00 meters / 52 feet 5-15/16 inches to 16.40 meters / 53 feet 9-11/16 inches. The V 162 was equipped with a second motor with 500 horsepower, which powered a heating generator. It was also equipped with a stronger gear drive. The traction motor with 1,900 horsepower was retained. This relatively expensive solution was installed in 3 prototypes and then only in 12 regular production units. The design for the V 169, one of the stars at the Munich Transportation Exhibition in 1965, was spectacular, but no less expensive. The heating generator was powered by a more powerful traction motor with 2,150 horsepower; the performance required for this was supposed to be balanced by a gas turbine with around 900 horsepower. The latter unit served as a "booster" in the partial and full load range. Another 8 improved locomotives were built 5 years after the prototype. Until 1978 they were the most powerful, fastest, and most expensive DB diesel locomotives: 3,700 horsepower and 160 km/h / 100 mph. The third alternative was the class 164: The heating generator was powered directly from the traction motor, and the latter was correspondingly designed to be more powerful with 2,500 horsepower. A stronger gear drive and a hydrodynamic brake system offered reliability and safety at 140 km/h / 88 mph. A rational design with the latest components available in 1968. The V 168 (initially, the V 160.3) was finally conceived as the V 160 with "retrofitting capabilities": It was initially equipped with standard motors with 1,900 horsepower as well as the latest gear drive and brakes. Steam heating was built into the regular production units, but the installation space was still large enough for a heating generator with its drive system. In 1968, all of the DB locomotives were assigned new class numbers, and the significant "V" for "internal combustion locomotives" was abandoned. Right at the start of Era IV, the DB took the decision about large scale production of diesel locomotives for the future. While the class 215 continued the procurement program of the class 216, the class 218 was finally ordered as the new standard locomotive. The main production run of a locomotive was delivered starting in 1971, a locomotive that was built in greater numbers than all of the other members of this family of locomotives taken together. The technical progress compared to the first V 160 is unmistakable. The power of 1,840 kilowatts / 2,500 horsepower reaches the values of the class 220 / 221, which was no longer being bought. With a speed of 140 km/h / 88 mph and electric heating, this general-purpose locomotive has become a real universal locomotive. The fuel consumption is on the order of the original V 160: around 300 liters / 26 gallons of diesel fuel oil every 100 kilometers / 63 miles. Noise insulation and electronic controls offer the operating comfort of an electric locomotive for the engineer. The 218 has been the DB and DB AG's most important diesel locomotive for over 35 years, and it has proven itself in all types of service - from heavy freight trains to the TEE. Economy and reliability have been exemplary even compared to the diesel locomotives on other railroads. Many of these locomotives are still in service on the DB AG. A comparable successor class is yet to be defined.

DB cl E 50 Electric Locomotive

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class E 50 heavy freight locomotive. The largest design of the standard design electric locomotives from the new construction program of the Fifties. Original version with double lights and rain gutters. Use: Freight and passenger trains.

Model: The locomotive has a new 14-pin digital connector. It also has a motor with a flywheel. 4 axles powered. Traction tires. The headlights and marker lights change over with the direction of travel and can be turned off by means of a new bridge plug. The headlights are warm white LEDs. The locomotive has a close coupler mechanism. It also has separately applied grab irons. Length over the buffers 122 mm / 4-13/16".

Comment: The German Federal Railroad's new construction electric locomotive program at the beginning of the Fifties also envisioned a heavy freight locomotive in the E 50, which was intended as a replacement for the E 94. The E 50 was designed first for heavy freight service on steeply graded routes; hence, it was supposed to provide performance that exceeded all electric locomotives previously built in Germany. Embedded in the total program of development for the new standard design electric locomotives, the lead management for the E 50 was given to the consortium of Krupp/AEG. The nominal power at 80 km/h / 50 mph was 4,500 kilowatts / 6,035 horsepower; the continuous power at 70 km/h / 44 mph was 4,218 kilowatts / 5,656 horsepower. With a view to the future, the E 50 was already designed for a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 63 mph, which could not be used to advantage for a long time in freight service because of older freight cars not suitable for such speeds. The higher performance requirements could only be achieved with appropriately larger designs of the essential components compared to the components for the other standard design electric locomotives. The transformer and the blower motors in particular required more room in the E 50. Three-axle trucks (C-C wheel arrangement) had to be installed so that the axle load of 21 metric tons was not exceeded. The long trucks meant that the frame for the body had to be longer, so that the E 50 was about 3 meters / approximately 10 feet longer than the E 10/E 40. The first units were placed into service beginning in April of 1957; the last E 50 locomotive was placed into service in July of 1973. A total of 194 locomotives were built. As with the other standard design electric locomotives, the E 50 (designated as the class 150 starting January 1, 1968) underwent numerous structural changes and improvements. The most noticeable changes externally were the removal of the rain gutters, the handrails on the ends with grate-style footrests, as well as the equipping of the locomotives with the "Klatte" design vent grills. The technical progress on the E 50/150 did not stop at the turn of the century with the class 152 and 185 electric locomotives being placed into service. In 2003, the last of the class 150 was taken out of service. Only two units remain preserved as museum locomotives for future generations.
