The Class P10 / BR 39 A Powerful Locomotive in the Mittelgebirge
Region. In 1919, development began at the firm of Borsig in Berlin for
a passenger locomotive with a 2-8-2 Mikado wheel arrangement.
Its job was chiefly to master heavy express train operation in the Mittelgebirge
region. It could often be seen on the Main-Weser line, the Eifel line,
the Schwarzwald or Black Forest line, the Gäu line, and in Saxony.
Between 1922 and 1927, a total of 260 units of this locomotive with
four driving axles left the builder's halls that the German State Railroad
Company (DRG) designated as the class 39 and that were indispensable
after World War II in both of the German states. These locomotives measured
22,890 mm / 75 feet 1-3/16 inches long and weighed 100.4 metric tons.
They reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h / 68 mph with their three-cylinder
running gear and had an indexed performance of 1,620 horsepower. However,
the class 39 exceeded the required axle load of 17 metric tons considerably
so that several of these powerful locomotives could not be used until
the rail lines had been improved. The P 10 was considered to be the
most powerful passenger locomotive among the provincial state railroads.
On the German Federal Railroad most of these locomotives were equipped
with Witte smoke deflectors and the type 22 T 34 tender,
which replaced the type pr22 T 31,5 tender. The DB retired
the class 39 in Stuttgart, where the last three units disappeared from
service in 1967. For the German State Railroad of East Germany the 85
locomotives remaining there were indispensable and they were included
in the rebuilding program there and afterwards designated as the class
22. Road number 39 230 on the German Federal Railroad was preserved
and you can currently see this impressive locomotive in the German Steam
Locomotive Museum in Neuenmarkt in Upper Franconia at the foot of the
famous/infamous Schiefe Ebene grade.

Great Hechte / Pike in the Eilzug
/ Fast Passenger Train. The Eilzug / Fast
Passenger Train concept introduced in 1902 in Bavaria designated
as a rule a fast train run over medium distances with few, short stops
at the most important stations. Over the years it was customary to use
older express train passenger cars in Eilzug trains, hence
the use of the Hechtwagen / Pike Cars in the
Fifties and Sixties that were formerly used in high quality express
train service. The Der Eilzug train was particularly interesting
for commuters, who streamed daily in and out of the large metropolitan
areas. Many Eilzug runs were therefore done in the large
metropolitan areas themselves on short routes and also in the surrounding
areas on less frequented branch lines routes; the latter were popularly
known as Heckeneilzüge / Hedge Fast Passenger
Trains and had for all intents and purposes a long-distance service
function. The modernization of the German railroad had no more use for
the name Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train. The
City Bahn / City Railroad, the Interregio
or even more the Regional Express epitomizes best the task of the Eilzug
/ Fast Passenger Train of the past.
The German Federal Railroad class 39 is the right motive power for
the E 554 Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train and
can be found as an Insider model for 2009 in the Märklin H0 assortment

The 88300 large diesel locomotive is being produced in 2009 in a
one-time series only for Insider members.
The V 300 6 Axles, Powerful, and Fast. Krauss-Maffei built a
more powerful, faster version of the class V 200 on the basis of the
V 200, but with 6 axles. The locomotive was almost identical with 3
units built for the Yugoslavian State Railroad. A great advantage of
this 20,270 mm / 66 foot 6-1/16 inch long and 140 km/h / 88 mph fast
locomotive was that it could be used on track with grades and curves
and with shallow roadbed because the axle load was a low 16 metric tons
compared to other locomotives. The internal designation at Krauss-Maffei
for the locomotive painted in blue was ML 2200 CC. Experimental
runs and tests with extreme loads were conducted on the Black Forest
line and on the Semmering line in Austria, and this locomotive passed
them with flying colors. Despite this, the locomotive was rebuilt to
increase the performance from 2,200 horsepower to 3,000 horsepower and
was painted in red with white striping. The new designation for the
locomotive was ML 3000 CC. Despite the impressive technology,
the German Federal Railroad did not order this locomotive as a regular
production unit, but it took ownership of this single unit in 1963 after
difficult negotiations with the builder and designated it as the V 300.1.
From that time on the locomotive was on the DB's roster, where it was
used in service similar to that for the V 200. In 1977, it was retired
as road number V 230 001-0. An attempt to sell it to Italy failed and
it ended up as scrap. Despite its being a single unit, it was an important
experimental vehicle for Krauss-Maffei. The valuable data from experimental
runs with this impressive machine flowed into the further development
of large diesel hydraulic locomotives and resulted in sales to North
America and Spain.
