Diesel-Hydraulic Trail Blazer – The class V 80 rang in a new era in German locomotive design. Starting in 1952, these locomotives were the first units placed into service with hydraulic power transmission. Other technical innovations were the welding technology used on the frame and superstructure as well as on the trucks. The propulsion system was equipped with 1,100 horsepower motors from MTU and an equally, fundamentally new universal shaft power transmission, both of these features constituting trail-blazing new developments. These units were also delivered for their planned service with multiple unit control for m.u. operation and push/pull service. The railroad followed the aesthetics of the 1950s with a flowing, rounded locomotive body. The V 80 was used with commuter and fast passenger trains. It was also used for light freight trains.

Switch Engine Dwarf with Storage Battery Power - From 1935 to 1937 a total of 41 locomotives with electric traction motors suspended over the axles powered by storage batteries were built parallel to the small locomotives built with diesel and Otto motors. Similar frames were used as a basis as with the variations with combustion motors. For that reason the locomotives designated as the class Ks were very similar externally to the class Kö (small locomotive with an diesel oil motor) and the class Kb (small locomotive with a gasoline motor) and had a comparable power output. The critical advantages of this class were that it was immediately ready to be run and could be used in areas or plants where exhaust gases were prohibited due to the danger of explosion. The DB still had a number of these locomotives powered from storage batteries well into the 1980’s. They were initially designated as the class Ka and later with the computer numbering designation 381. Several units were then acquired by private firms and museums.

ER 20 in ”alex” Railroad Operations. The diesel-electric powered ER 20 is a member of the technically very modern EuroRunner locomotive family. Siemens Dispolok GmbH has been leasing out these units from the large EuroRunner production run since 2002. These locomotives are suitable for freight service as well as for passenger train service. These units put out 2,000 kilowatts / 2,681 horsepower and are currently authorized to run in Germany and Austria. The latest diesel motor technology and a new type of noise dampening make the ER 20 one of the quietest diesel locomotives with the lowest level of exhaust gases in Europe. If necessary, these locomotives can be adapted in appearance and technically on request to the various requirements of customers for use on national or European main or branch lines. The consortium from the ”Provincial Railroad” (brand name for the Regental Railroad AG/Regental Railroad Operations GmbH) and EuroThurbo GmbH (German subsidiary of the Swiss firm Thurbo AG) is one of Siemens Dispolok’s lease locomotive customers. These two partners jointly run the Allgäu Express from Munich to Oberstdorf, which has its logo ”alex” on the Siemens Dispo locomotives. These locomotives with their contrasting yellow-white-aluminum paint scheme are a real eye catcher in railroad operations in the alpine foothills.

Branch Line Legend – The legendary DB class 98.3 (former Bavarian class PtL 2/2) branch line locomotives were seldom designated with their exact class number, because these nimble branch line units were much better known with the nickname ”Glaskasten” (”Glass Box”). The comparably roomy engineer’s cab is to thank for this affectionate name. The cab surrounded a large part of the boiler and its luxurious glassed in area gave the engineer a good view of the tracks in both directions. Partially automatic coal firing enabled economical one-man operation of these locomotives. This meant they were predestined for light weight branch line service.
The following DB Era III cars go well with this locomotive: 43010, 43020, 43030.

Nimble Branch Line Motive Power – Tank locomotives should use little fuel and also be able to run in both directions without the need for a turntable on branch lines with low axle load limits. For these reasons maneuverable, general-purpose locomotives were indispensable in the past particularly for bringing cars on short routes to main lines and for switching work. In addition, their designs were supposed to be extremely simple to operate and not incur much in the way of servicing and repair costs. These locomotives were often painted in decorative provincial railroad color schemes, and a number of them have survived up to the present in part on privately owned and industrial railroads as well due to the commitment of railroad enthusiasts. Such admirable old-timers can be found on the motive power roster of many railroad museums.

100 Years of the P8 Mystique – Railroad enthusiasts in Germany and Europe have considered the Prussian P8 as one of the most beautiful steam locomotives hands down for the last 100 years. The design for this locomotive quickly proved to be extremely good with a high level of power and remarkable reliability. The immense number of over 3,800 units built from 1906 to 1928 as well as their extraordinary versatility as motive power for passenger, fast passenger, and even for express train service led to remarkably wide use of this locomotive. Numerous locomotive builders took part in the production of this “jack-of-all-trades”. The largest number by far of these locomotives built was delivered to the Royal Prussian Railroad Administration (KPEV), but other provincial railroads, foreign railroads, and towards the end of the period in which the P8 was built even the German State Railroad Company (DRG) took delivery of considerable numbers of the locomotive. This finely constructed model reproduces the locomotive as the prototype originally looked immediately after delivery with a box-style tender. At that time the locomotives did not have smoke deflectors on the boiler.

Elegant Oil Steamer – The two class 10 express steam locomotives developed from scratch and placed into service in 1957 at the initiative of the German Federal Railroad were supposed to replace the class 01 and 01.10 locomotives, who were getting on in years, as motive power for modern long distance passenger trains. These DB parade locomotives were built by Krupp and were equipped with partial streamlining, which was supposed to decrease wind resistance and protect the cylinders from to much dirt. Road number 10 002 was equipped at the time of entering service with an efficient form of oil firing. The high performance boiler of welded construction was used in new locomotive construction and had already proven itself very well in the DB class 01.10 locomotives rebuilt starting in 1953. This design gave both of these new locomotives tremendous reserves of power with 2,500 horsepower / 1,840 kilowatts. Nevertheless, the era of steam motive power was clearly nearing its end due to the rapid electrification during the 1960s. These two elegant steam race horses thus remained a single pair despite the instructive results achieved in operation. They are a pair that is still among the legends of that era.
The DB express train passenger cars from the 43929 car set as well as models 43910, 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 go well with this locomotive.

The ”Habersack / Haversack” – Only a few Swiss locomotives achieved such a high degree of popularity that they were given a name. The Eb 3/5 tank locomotive was designed intentionally with a particular shape and got its nickname ”Habersack” from the field pack long familiar to Swiss men, when they did their military service. From 1911 to 1916 SLM built a total of 34 of this locomotive with its power output of almost 1,000 horsepower / 735 kilowatts. It was initially intended for passenger service and could run at 75 km/h / 47 mph in both directions. After being equipped with an additional braking system, these locomotives were also quite suitable with their 74 metric ton service weight for freight service. Starting in 1930 they were assigned mostly to this latter service. Regular use of this attractively shaped veteran of the Swiss steam locomotive era decreased as the Swiss rail network was completely electrified. Between 1950 and 1965 these locomotives were gradually put into storage or sold.

These locomotives could run at a maximum speed of 55 km/h / 34 mph, which was sufficient for the heavy freight service on curving steep grades. These three-unit heavyweights could use their hefty startup power to great effect on such routes. Six of these units were on the motive power roster of the German Federal Railroad, and one unit has been preserved as a museum locomotive.

Long-Lived General-Purpose Diesel – At the beginning of the 1950s the SNCB was looking for alternatives to steam motive power. The new locomotives had to be suitable for branch lines that were not economical to electrify as well as for main lines during the transition period until the latter had usable catenary. At that time the only reliable information about the broad use of powerful diesel locomotives was available in the United States. The introduction of diesel motive power on the SNCB therefore ended up by necessity in a cooperative venture between the American locomotive builders and the Belgian railroaders. At the end of 1953 SNCB awarded a contract for 55 four-axle class 201 locomotives to be built in the John Cockerill plant in Seraing. They were designed for the lighter traffic routes on the northern plains of Sambre and Maas and were equipped with a Baldwin motor. The first regular production locomotive was delivered in December of 1954. The last of these long-lived locomotives was still pulling work trains in June of 2002 for the construction of the high-speed routes in France and Belgium. These units were given a green paint scheme with yellow decorative striping as well as additional steps under the headlights in middle of the 1960s.

A Sturdy Classic – The SBB placed the class Ae 3/6 II in operation from 1923 to 1926 chiefly for express and passenger train service in the Swiss midlands. The 4-6-2 wheel arrangement ("Pacific") and the use of side rod drive was the result of a focus on prototypes of the fading Swiss steam locomotive era. Viewed from this perspective, the Ae 3/6 II design was not exactly innovative. However, the 60 units built turned in good results and their almost proverbial reliability ensured them an extraordinarily long service life. Over the course of their long career these locomotives were adapted several times to new operational requirements. In addition to technical modifications, the changes were particularly noticeable on the outside of the locomotive when the side cab doors on the right side of the respective cabs at the front of the locomotive as well as the front doors on the ends of the locomotive were welded shut to reduce the considerable drafts into the locomotive. During a subsequent overhaul the ends were sealed completely because rust developed in the welding seams. The paint scheme on the locomotives also changed to reflect the design concepts in the various eras. Road number Ae 3/6 II 10439 has been rebuilt to a large extent to its original state, is painted brown again and even remains preserved as an operational museum locomotive to this day.

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 planning 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.

Early German Federal Railroad Flagship Train and the Wonder of Bern – The first five sets of the VT 08 express powered rail car trains were available to the German Federal Railroad as early as the summer schedule of 1952. The thoughts given to the new development of diesel powered rail car trains with hydraulic transmissions went all the way back to the foundation of the German Federal Railroad. Thus, thirteen three-unit trains from the first production series were built by 1953 for important long distance express passenger service as part of the new construction program. Another six engine cars with dining car arrangements and seven intermediate cars were added by 1954 in the second production run. These units were used primarily to lengthen the existing trains to four and five-unit consists with powered end cars at both ends. The modern, comfortable VT 08 represented the epitome of the new German Federal Railroad and enjoyed great popularity among the passengers. The smooth rounded form of the ends of the train quickly led to the nickname ”Egg Heads”. These deluxe trains provided service on long distance routings with sonorous names such as ”Rheinblitz”, ”Münchner Kindl”, ”Roland”, ”Schauinsland” or ”Saphir”. These fast trains were also used on foreign routes such as the ”Paris-Ruhr” (Dortmund-Paris) as well as the ”Helvetia” (Hamburg-Zürich). The prime time for the VT 08 extended well into the 1960s. After electrification of many major routes, the VT 08 trains were then still used partially in TEE service. Later, these trains were rebuilt to simpler standards for plain fast train service. World Champions Return Trip in 1954 – Without a doubt the most spectacular use of a VT 08 powered rail car train was the return trip in this comfortable, special powered rail car train of the German national soccer team after they won the world championship in 1954 in Bern. This train was lettered for the occasion with ”FUSSBALL-WELTMEISTER 1954” (”WORLD SOCCER CHAMPIONS 1954”). On the trip from Spiez, the headquarters of the German team, to Munich hundreds of thousands of soccer enthusiasts crowded into the stations to celebrate this sensational team. Over 20,000 fans eager to see the team overwhelmed the border station of Singen. They stood on station platforms, platform roofs, tracks, anywhere they could catch a glimpse of the train. The trip had to be repeatedly interrupted due to the masses of people.
A station platform announcement, the associated sounds of the doors being closed, and the departure whistle Märklin Systems as auxiliary environment sound functions. In addition, the sound of escaping compressed air can be activated with the Central Station.
An intermediate car with the prototypical lettering ”FUSSBALL-WELTMEISTER 1954” is offered under item no. 42080. This powered rail car train is being offered by Trix for two-rail DC systems: VT 08.5 –Trix item no. 22608. The intermediate car lettered ”Fußball WM 1954” – Trix item no. 24608.

From New Construction to Enduring Classic – The class E 10 (starting in 1953) and class E10.1 (starting in 1956) electric locomotives placed into service by the new German Federal Railroad quickly proved to be extremely multifaceted and highly reliable new locomotives. However, from 1963 on there was a desire to increase express train speeds to 160 km/h / 100 mph. The two early classes of E 10 locomotives were designed for a maximum speed of 130 and 150 km/h / 81 and 94 mph, which was not enough. The class E 10.3 was therefore developed. Its design borrowed heavily from proven components, but it was equipped with a more aerodynamic body with typical ”pants crease” ends, buffers in streamlined housings, and continuous skirting at the ends for the buffer beams. This was in addition to higher gear ratios and improvements to the running gear. One other characteristic feature of these locomotives was the continuous vent grills along the sides of the units, which together with a cobalt blue paint scheme gave these locomotives a dignified, elegant appearance. From 1963/64 on the E 10.3 in this form was the preferred motive power for express train consists in important long distance service on electrified routes. The units still in use today have proven themselves with their high percentage of time available for service and their extremely durable construction. The experience gathered from this class was used as a basis for the design of the still more powerful class E 03 electric express locomotives.

With the Re 4/4 into a New Era – In 1947 a new generation of locomotives appeared on the Swiss rail network. The Swiss Federal Railways were able to revolutionize its entire concept for motive power with the purchase of the Re 4/4 I. This locomotive had two power trucks and no pilot trucks. Its maximum speed of 125 km/h / 78 mph enabled considerably shorter trip times. This locomotive is still considered today as a milestone in the history of Swiss locomotive building. The Re 4/4 I was swift and at just 57 metric tons was a remarkably lightweight unit. It mastered its period of use extremely well. It introduced a new era in SBB passenger service with the transition from heavy, sedate express train service to accelerated city-to-city connections with short, regularly scheduled timings. The Re 4/4 I had a power output of 1,855 kilowatts / 2,520 horsepower was a very good general-purpose locomotive, whose push/pull and multiple unit controls made it suitable for a rationalized push/pull train service as well as for m.u. motive power operation. The good reserve of power for acceleration present on these locomotives with their electric resistance brakes made them the ideal combination with the comfortable SBB lightweight steel passenger cars. These train consists left their stamp for a long time on the image of passenger train service for long distance city-to-city connections.

Express Train Star of Striking Elegance – The German State Railroad Company (DRG) awarded a contract to AEG as early as 1933 to develop a powerful locomotive for heavy express train service. The design for these locomotives, which were placed into service as the E 18 starting in 1935, borrowed heavily from the technology used for the predecessor classes E 04 and E 17, since good results had been gathered with these units. However, new paths were blazed with the technology for the frame and running gear, in that proven elements were combined with progressive new developments. This resulted in noticeable improvements in the running characteristics. Moreover, these locomotives were provided with a particularly elegant shape with characteristically rounded engineer’s cabs. The E 18 was impressive in terms of form as well as power output. Undoubtedly, they are still among the stars of German locomotive design. The E 18 was the most powerful single-frame locomotive in the world, when it was awarded the highest accolade of the Grand Prix at the Paris World Fair in 1937. These elegant ”race horses” could also shine in terms of durability and reliability: The last units (then designated as the class 118) were not retired by the DB until 1984.
The DB express train passenger cars from the 43929 car set as well as item nos. 43910, 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 go well with this locomotive.

50th Anniversary of the V 200 – The new German Federal Railroad was intensively occupied in the 1950s with replacing steam motive power that was expensive to run with other forms of motive power. The high cost of electrifying the entire rail network at that time restricted the possibilities. So, attention was given to powerful diesel locomotives for important express train service. The required technology was already at hand for smaller and medium weight diesel locomotives. However, progress had been made in mastering the low maintenance, quiet running propulsion technology with cardan shafts for powerful locomotives with motors. Moreover, Daimler-Benz, MAN, and Maybach had designed a new 12 cylinder 1,100 horsepower prime mover in cooperation with the German Federal Railroad’s central office in Munich. In addition, Maybach and Voith developed a new fluid transmission. The successful V 200.0 was developed from these progressive components by Krauss-Maffei with participation from most of the West German locomotive builders. The two prime movers in the locomotive put out a total of 2,200 horsepower with a service weight of about 78 metric tons. A steam locomotive of comparable power had a tender tipping the scales with a weight of approximately 160 metric tons. The proof of the extraordinarily high level of reliability and suitability of this locomotive icon in daily operation of the 1950s can be seen in the fact that a half century after its creation there are still units running in foreign countries and in privately owned railroads.
Special light function: The locomotive marker lights can be controlled with a Control Unit or Märklin Systems.
The DB express train passenger cars from the 43929 car set as well as item nos. 43910, 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 go well with this locomotive.

From Germany to the SBB – The class 200 (later the class 220) heavy diesel locomotives purchased in the 1950s by the German Federal Railroad were taken out of service toward the end of the 1980s and some of them were sold. On the one hand the increasing electrification of the DB’s route network had decreased the need for diesel locomotives, and on the other hand the maintenance costs were too high by today’s standards for this first large German diesel locomotive with its two separate propulsion systems. Many of these units were therefore sold to private German railroads and abroad. The SBB also acquired 7 of these large diesel locomotives from the DB and starting in 1987/88 designated them as the class Am 4/4 in its motive power pool. These locomotives were needed in Switzerland to transport material for extensive rebuilding of main lines. Since there is no working catenary present for such construction work, the SBB was looking for powerful diesel locomotives, which were unavailable in Switzerland in sufficient quantities. Since these locomotives were also used at night for this track work, the former DB flagship locomotives were completely overhauled and equipped with expensive sound insulation for the motors in order to minimize the noise for residents near the tracks. A few years later after their use in track construction the Am 4/4 locomotives went back to Germany to railroad material suppliers.

Unforgettable Branch Line Growlers. The experiences with the single-motor class VT 95 (later the class 795) rail busses developed by the firm Waggonfabrik Uerdingen proved the basic suitability of these units for the urgently necessary modernization of branch line service. At the same time, the class VT 95’s power plant was too weak for routes with grades, particularly when operated with trailer units. For that reason, a year later three prototypes of the class VT 98.9 (later the class 798.9) rail bus equipped with two 150 horsepower / 110 kilowatt Büssing motors followed. These units fulfilled to a large extent the expectations set for them. However, the three test units still had Scharfenberg center couplers and lightweight spring-loaded metal straps for protection against contact with locomotives and cars with regular buffers. Delivery of the regular production two-motor class 98.95 (later the class 798.5) rail busses began in 1955 Compared to the test prototypes, the 329 units built were equipped with newly developed frames for the wheel sets with improved running characteristics as well as standard prototype couplers, regular buffers, and a standard design brake system. This enabled these more powerfully motorized rail cars to also pull transfer freight cars if necessary. In addition, the VT 98 units had a form of multiple unit control that enabled not only push/pull operation, but also the control of a motor car at the other end of the train. Suitable control cars (VS 98) and trailer cars (VM 98) were also placed into service to go with these powered rail cars. These crimson red rail bus sets quickly defined the look on German branch line routes, where they quickly replaced the trains that previously were still hauled by steam locomotives. The Uerdingen rail bus sets left an enduring impression on the memory of many railroad passengers: For decades these red growlers were the synonym for mobility in rural areas. The hearts of many railroad users still belong to these lovable ”branch line saviors” from the time when they were placed into service.
The headlights / marker lights at the coupler ends of the rail bus can be controlled as an auxiliary light function. In addition, the environment sound function (sound of doors closing, departure whistle) can be controlled with Märklin Systems.
The class 998.0 rail bus trailer to add to the set consisting of a motor and control car is available as item no. 41980.
