The Rheingold – Traveling like Kings. After the catastrophe of World War I and the political upheavals in Europe, traveling began to grow again in popularity. The railroad was used almost exclusively for long distances, since it promised a fast, comfortable mode of conveyance. The sleeping and dining car firms run under private ownership dominated in long distance service. They offered an extensive palette of services up to and including the ultimate luxury. The German State Railroad Company (DRG) did not want to sit on its hands and do nothing with regard to its competition, and this new, self-confident firm was determined to underscore its presence on European rails with a deluxe train possessed of an international quality. In 1927, the German State Railroad officially disclosed the order for express train passenger cars to form long distance express trains, which were intended to represent innovation and comfort by rail. The "Who's who" of the German car building industry participated in the building of these cars, among others, the firms Waggon und Maschinenfabrik AG, Görlitz and the Waggonfabrik Wegmann & Co. A total of 26 Rheingold parlor cars were built: 4 cars, 1st class, type SA4ü, with seating for 28 4 cars, 1st class, type SA4üK, with a galley and seating for 20 8 cars, 2nd class, type SB4ü, with seating for 43 10 cars, 2nd class, type SB4üK, with a galley and seating for 29. For their time they represented the longest German cars with a length of 23.50 meters / 77 feet 1/3/16 inches. The bodies were constructed entirely of steel and the total weight was between 50 and 52 metric tons, i.e. up to 12 metric tons more than a conventional express train passenger car. Trucks (Görlitz II heavy) were developed just for the "Rheingold" series. They had to withstand high train speeds and had a wheelbase of 3.60 meters / 11 feet 9-3/4 inches. In addition, there are also 3 baggage cars, type SPw4ü, each with a length over the buffers of 19.68 meters / 64 feet 6-13/16 inches and facilities for goods in bond and for transporting pet dogs. The extremely elegant paint scheme for these prestigious cars attracted attention and interest. Initially, the color scheme for the outer surface of the cars was a kind of plum color with the pier panels in cream, later violet / cream with the widely known golden "Rheingold" lettering. The interior space of the cars offered the highest level of luxury, in first class even individually upholstered arm chairs with high backs. Attention was given to the different wishes of the passengers, so that there were compartments as well as large open parlor areas. The Rheingold had to face comparisons with the Orient Express right from the start, and the passengers enjoyed luxury in the parlor cars as only crowned heads of state had known it in the past. The interior conformed to the taste of that time Famous German artists and architects participated, and the influences of the artistic avant-garde school for building and design in Dessau were reflected, with names such as Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, or Paul Klee involved. The best care was offered to passengers at their seats in the trains running between Basle and Hook of Holland. Customs and passport control were done in the train during the trip, an exception for that time, but one that shorted the travel time considerably. All of the railroads that participated in the operation of the train were convinced of the significance and importance of this train, and it was natural that the most powerful and beautiful locomotives were used as motive power for the Rheingold. The outbreak of World War II brought the Rheingold to an abrupt end and its cars were stored during the war or put to special uses for the German army and the Red Cross and after 1945 for the occupation forces.

This model goes very well with the class 18.3 express locomotive with a tender (item nos. 39020 and 39025). This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 23430.

The "Silberlinge / Silver Coins" – A DB Success Story. The German Federal Railroad car designated as "Silberling / Silver Coin" is a car adhering to the UIC-X guidelines. It is 26.4 meters / 86 feet 7-3/8 inches long and has 2 entry areas with double doors. The name derives from the car bodies constructed of polished stainless steel. The car group "n", the official designation for the "Silberling", was purchased in a group of 5,000 units between 1961 and 1980 and in different designs. For a long time it was the most numerous car in commuter service on the DB. Depending on the design, these cars tip the scales at 31-40 metric tons and are authorized for a maximum speed of 120-140 km/h / 75-88 mph. The pure 2nd class car has seating for 96, in the mixed class car there is seating for 30 in 1st class and for 46 in 2nd class. The German Federal Railroad placed different cab control cars into service for push/pull operation, which was often done with the class E 41/141. The "Rabbit Hutch", a cab control car with extremely cramped space for the locomotive engineer was replaced by the later "Karlsruher Kopf" type cab control car. This cab control car also had a baggage area, but more importantly a modern, generously arranged engineer's cab. The name derives from the maintenance facility in Karlsruhe, where the cab control cars were rebuilt. The "Silberling" was a universal car, from commuter service to express train, even used as reserve cars in Inter-Zone trains to Berlin. The "n" cars had steam, diesel, and electric locomotives for motive power, and, like many other DB cars, were run in different paint schemes. However, although they have been ignored in mint green, "traffic red", or countless forms of Graffiti, they have remained the "Silberlinge" in popular usage. Presently, these cars are in used on the DB AG in the "traffic red" paint scheme, and similar classes based on the construction principles for the "Silberlinge" can be found in Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Poland, for example.

DC wheel set 4 x 70 0580.

Express train passenger cars in the new, longer length.

The TEE Bavaria. The international, long distance connection between Munich and Zürich, operated as a TEE train from 1969 to 1979, was christened with the name Bavaria. The new TEE pair of trains 57/56 ran in place of the express train Munich – Zürich – Geneva. The Swiss-Dutch class Ram TEE powered rail car train was used for this very busy line and was pulled from other services. In the evening hours of February 9, 1971, one of the most serious train accidents in TEE history took place. The TEE was running much to fast and derailed on an "S" curve, and a rail bus set collided with the ill-fated TEE. Twenty-eight dead and forty-two seriously injured was the devastating result of the accident. The high number of deaths and injured was also caused by the fact that the window glass on the TEE train were not made of safety glass, and the interior of the dining car was not permanently mounted on the floor. Train service was halted for 7 days in order to remove all traces of the accident. The operation of the TEE Bavaria was resumed after that, but now with a train of cars hauled by a locomotive instead of a powered rail car train. This train consisted of rolling stock from the German Federal Railroad, one each TEE compartment car, type Avmz 111, and an open seating car, type Apmz121. A lounge car, type ARDmz 106, was used as a replacement dining car. A class 210 gas turbine locomotive was used as motive power on the route between Munich and Lindau in order to operate this route fast and efficiently. The Bavaria as a TEE train was canceled in 1977 and the connection Munich – Zürich was served by Express Train 277/76, with seating in both car classes. In 1987, the Bavaria became a Euro City, connecting Munich and Zürich daily with four EC pairs of trains. The melodious name Bavaria has been a chapter in railroad history since 2002 however.

DC wheel set 12 x 700580. The right motive power for this train is the class 210 gas turbine locomotive available under item no. 39189.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 23427.
