The Class 232 - Ludmilla in Germany. In contrast to the West, where electric motive power was favored, the majority of Eastern Europe railroads concentrated on diesel locomotives to replace uneconomical steam operation. A new family of large diesel locomotives from Russia, among them the present day Germany Railroad, Inc.'s class 232, was purchased between 1972 and 1982 in consultation with the RGW in several series for East Germany's German State Railroad. This immense, six-axle, almost 21 meter / 69 foot long diesel electric locomotive with its 6 traction motors had a continuous rating of up to 2,940 kilowatts / 3,943 horsepower and a maximum speed of up to 140 km/h / 88 mph, depending on the series. These locomotives were used in East Germany for both freight trains and express trains as long as the locomotives had train heating. Due to delivery problems from the Soviet builder in Woroschilowgrad, the latter were not installed in all locomotives. Their great weight and axle load of 20 metric tons did not allow them to be used everywhere, and the DR had to use the classes 118 and 119 depending on the reconstruction of a route. The DR crews gave this Russian locomotive the name "Ludmilla", which apparently came from the maintenance facility in Leipzig and which is still popularly used for this family of locomotives. There were 709 units of the class 132, the latter class 232, built. They were taken over by the DB AG – also due to their built-in train heating – and are still used in many areas, while the other series have been retired or sold. Several locomotives were completely overhauled and given new motors. They represent the new classes 233, 234, and 241 and provide service in Germany along with class 232 Russian Ludmilla locomotives.

T44 – The Power of the North. In the Sixties, the older classes of Swedish diesel locomotives were no longer able to meet the railroad's requirements. The cars had become longer and heavier, thereby increasing the demand for modern diesel switch engine. The Swedish State Railways ordered a switch engine with a B-B wheel arrangement from the firm NOHAB (Trollhättan, Sweden). This four-axle, 76 metric ton heavy locomotive has a length of 15.4 meters / 50 feet 6-5/16 inches, a power output of 1,235 kilowatts / 1,656 horsepower and reaches a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 63 mph. The class T44 has given reliable results since being placed into service in 1968, but it also used for light freight trains out on the line. The range of its tasks is approximately comparable to that of the German Federal Railroad's class 290. The class T44 has had several paint schemes during its service life. Currently, it is run in Sweden in the SJ's attractive blue paint scheme. The really classic scheme is surely the orange/blue version from Era IV.

The Class 210 – Gas Turbine on the Allgäu Line. The DB considered an increase in power for the class V 160 locomotives for the heavy passenger service on the route from Munich to Lindau. At that time this route was still not electrified and had many curves, and there was need to increase the speed and efficiency of the operation between Munich and Zürich. The V 160 was planned for medium heavy service, and the decision was thus taken by the German Federal Railroad to purchase 8 class 210 diesel locomotives with supplemental gas turbine drive. The class 210 looked and was technically almost identical to the class 218. Since the maximum speed was set at 160 km/h / 100 mph, the brake system had to be reinforced. When more performance was required, the gas turbine built by Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz was switched on with 19,250 rpm. The turbine was also diesel powered and the exhaust was also routed outside through a stack on the roof. This stack was also the visually striking feature that set the class 210 apart from its close sibling the class 218. Due to the increase in performance achieved by the gas turbine, all 8 diesel locomotives, stationed in Kempten from 1970 on, were rated as the most powerful four-axle diesel locomotives in Germany. Previous experience gained with gas turbines allowed the German Federal Railroad to put the class 210 quickly into service, and these locomotives largely fulfilled the expectations set for them. They were used in heavy express train service and also pulled the TEE Bavaria. In 1978, numerous accidents accumulated, and an examination after a fire involving a gas turbine revealed that turning the gas turbine on and off frequently affected its service life considerably. The railroad authorities then decided to remove the gas turbines and reduce the maximum speed to 140 km/h / 88 mph. The locomotives were now the same as the class 218; they were designated as the class 218.9 and were used in pairs as multiple unit motive power to pull trains.

The model of the class 210 is the ideal motive power for the "TEE Bavaria" available under item no. 43859.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22222.

The V 300 – A One-Off with 6 Axles. The firm Krauss-Maffei built three type ML 2200 6-axle locomotives based on the German Federal Railroad's successful V 200 for the Yugoslavian State Railroad. Perhaps in the hope of additional orders, a fourth, identical locomotive with the C-C wheel arrangement was built at Krauss-Maffei's own cost as a demonstrator unit. This locomotive was presented and offered in a striking builder's paint scheme to the German Federal Railroad among others. After several tests, the motor performance for this locomotive was increased and was designated internally at Krauss-Maffei as the type ML 3000 C’C’. It took long negotiations to move the German Federal Railroad to buy this one-off model and put it on its roster as the class V 300 001. It was painted in the elegant crimson / gray color scheme of its two-axle sibling and was used primarily in premium express train service. In 1968, it was given the computer number 230 001-0 and this impressive machine could be seen in its last years in service between Hamburg and Westerland on the Isle of Sylt, where it also pulled the popular auto trains between Niebüll and Westerland. In 1975, road no. 230 001-0 was put in storage, and the German Federal Railroad tried to sell it, unsuccessfully however, to Italy in 1977. In 1978, it came back to Germany and was finally scrapped two years later.

An express train to go with this locomotive can be made up with the cars, item nos. 43919 and 43928.
