The computer designation 081 had been planned for the class 81 tank locomotives in the numbering scheme after 1968. The end of steam operation was already foreseeable at this time. In the Eighties, the DB used several industrial diesel locomotives as part of a test program for purchasing new motive power. These locomotives were given the class designation 258. Changes in the freight service market led to regular production of these locomotives, but chiefly for privately owned railroads.

202 cm x 92 cm / 80" x 37"

This set can be expanded with the C Track extension sets and with the entire C Track program.

The Tiny Twins. After the Second World War, the V 36 was practically the only mass-produced diesel locomotive available to the new DB and the East German DR. Around 120 of these units built from 1937 to 1944 were still in existence and the DB had another 30 locomotives built from the same designs. They were used in switching work and on transfer routes. These locomotives produced 360 horsepower and could be upgraded to the medium power class for road operation with light passenger or freight trains. A simple form of M.U. operation back to back was included in the design of the V 36. Both cabs were accessible by means of crossover doors, and direct communication between them was possible. At that time two-man operation was the rule anyway with this locomotive class; in operation as pairs the workplaces were separated by the buffer beams. The mechanical connection of the throttles for both locomotives and control from one cab was possible in a limited way. The novel by Erich Kästner in 1949 gave the double locomotive its nickname in German "Doppelte Lottchen" or "Double Lotte" (in English, an approximate equivalent is "Tiny Twins"). The option of m.u. operation was used again and again until finally the compact V 100 was available in sufficient quantities. Today, two museum locomotives sometimes meet to form a special attraction – the "Tiny Twins".

From Door to Door ... The units in the "Von Haus zu Haus" ("From Door to Door") system designated as medium size containers are known in railroad jargon as "pa" containers. The French expression "porteur aménagé" means approximately "transport equipment". These containers were developed in different forms for different types of freight. Common to all of the types of containers are the maximum loading gauge and the standard mount that is used on all railroad and highway vehicles in this system.

On the Way to the DB ... The operating association of the Southwest German Railways (SWDE) managed the state railways in the French Occupation Zone from 1947 to 1949. The states of Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhenish-Palatinate), Südbaden (South Baden), and Württemberg-Hohenzollern introduced the railroad districts of Karlsruhe, Mainz, and Trier (as a substitute for Saarbrücken); the general administration was headquartered in Speyer. The German Federal Railroad originated from the railroads of the British-American Bi-Zone (Brit./US Zone) as early as 1949 of course; the SWDE was not fully incorporated into the DB until 1952.
