Prussia on Wheels. Around the next to the last turn of the century Prussian passenger cars were also gaining in speed and comfort. The classic, hard three-axle cars no longer met the needs of the new age. The KPEV therefore decided to purchase compartment cars with trucks. These cars featured many side doors with continuous steps as well as a clerestory roof and a high-mounted brakeman's cab. The procurement of the regular production cars began in 1895 and extended to 1920. A total of over 3,400 cars were built, with different arrangements of the different classes of seating and with design changes. More than half of the cars were 3rd class units with 9 compartments and seating for 76 on wood benches. The other cars had mixed classes with different arrangements of the compartments for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd class.

The 87583 baggage and mail car set can be added to the 87564 compartment car set, and a suitable locomotive for these cars is the class P 10 available as item no. 88093.

50 Years of the E 50 ... 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 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.

"50 Years of the Trans Europe Express". The Trans Europe Express "Saphir" was a European train of the first rank. TEE 75/76 ran between Dortmund and Ostend starting in June of 1957 as the newest DB express powered rail car train. A year later, this route was lengthened as TEE 19/20 to Frankfurt. Starting in 1966, Brussels was the turnaround point. Between 1971 and 1978 the train ran as TEE 20/21 in Germany as far as Nürnberg. 1979 was the last year in service for the "Saphir"; the route Frankfurt - Brussels was run on schedule as in the past in 5 hours.

The 87933 car set contains 3 additional intermediate cars to make up a prototypical model of the "Saphir".
