The Class 103 - the DB's Media Star! The German Federal Railroad ushered in a new era, when the class E 03 was presented in 1965 at the International Transportation Exhibition in Munich: regularly scheduled passenger service at 200 km/h / 125 mph. In addition, the class E 03, designated as the class 103 in the German Federal Railroad's roster from 1968 on, represented a milestone in locomotive development - it was the first express locomotive to surpass the class E 19, whose design dated back to the Thirties. Reason enough to be proud of this powerful, beautifully shaped locomotive and to put it accordingly in the limelight. Hardly any other locomotive like the class 103, known for an entire generation as the Intercity locomotive, was marketed so much in the media. In TV ad spots, posters, and brochures this locomotive became a symbol for the German Federal Railroad's dynamism, a guarantee for reliability, speed, and comfort. Extensive test runs, among them regular speeds of 200 km/h / 125 mph between Munich and Augsburg, were done with four prototypes, until the class 103 was purchased as a regular production unit starting in 1970. The 145 locomotives differed from the prototypes in leaving off the decorative striping and in double rows of vents. Single-arm pantographs were installed on the locomotives from 1976 on, and the last series of units delivered had longer engineer's cabs, because crews complained about the cramped work space. The aerodynamic, six-axle locomotive had a total continuous power rating of 7,440 kilowatts / 9,977 horsepower and was the most powerful DB locomotive until the use of three-phase current technology. The high startup tractive effort as well as the electric brakes, independent for the first time of the catenary and connected in series with air brakes, drew favorable comment worldwide. The performance strengths of the 103 were reflected in the enormous number of runs and even today it is still rated as the locomotive with the highest level of service life in Germany. Its uncommonly attractive looks remained essentially unchanged during its use on the DB. In later years, the skirting and the buffer cladding were removed and several locomotives were painted in the "Chinese red" color scheme; only one unit was painted in "traffic red". The German Federal Railroad's class 103 was very popular with crews and passengers right up to the end of its regularly scheduled use, and it is understandable that a considerable number of them have remained preserved as museum locomotives. Many people today remember back as if it were just yesterday when they were young and how the 103 flew past them on the station platform.

The contemporary car types for the TEE "Rheingold" in the sets, item nos. 58048 and 58049, are the right express train passenger cars to go with the E 03.

The historic "Adler" passenger train is appearing in 2010 in a one-time series of 666 units on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of railroading in Germany. A consecutively number certificate is proof of the authenticity of this exclusive set.

The first train in Germany ran on December 7, 1835 between the cities of Nürnberg and Fürth. This rail line was only 7.45 kilometers / 4.66 miles. It became famous as the Ludwig Railroad and had its roots in a railroad project developed a few years earlier that was quite revolutionary for the times. The "Privileged Ludwig Railroad Company" was founded in November of 1833 and was granted a concession from the Bavarian King Ludwig I on February 19, 1834 to build and operate the railroad. Horses and a steam car were planned to be available for operation. Originally, the steam car was supposed to be built in Germany, but a reliable builder could not be found. Therefore, an order for the first German "steam car" was quickly placed with the father of the steam locomotive - George Stephenson in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The order was not placed until May of 1835 and after an eight week, very arduous trip the new steam locomotive arrived in Nürnberg on October 26, 1835, but disassembled in over 100 pieces and packed in 19 large crates. The locomotive was immediately assembled under the expert direction of the English locomotive engineer William WiIson "delivered" with the locomotive. It was named after the "Adler" or "Eagle" as the heraldic animal of the Kaiser and the free imperial cities. The purchase of the cars was simpler. Two frames had been delivered from England, and the home "industry" built the car bodies as well as another seven passenger cars. The locomotive was built on a wood frame strengthened with sheet metal. Two inboard, vertical wet steam cylinders powered the driving axle located in the middle. The driving wheels had no flanges in order to enable the locomotive to negotiate sharp curves. The wheels were initially made of cast iron (later forged iron) and were surrounded with forged tires. The forged, hollow wheel spokes were given a wood core in order to cushion unevenness better. Braking was done with the help of a spindle brake, which only worked on the tender wheels on right side of the fireman. Initially, charcoal, then later hard coal was used as fuel. The approximately 6.5 metric ton "Adler" turned in excellent results right from the start. Its performance was around 40 horsepower and its speed when running by itself was 65 km/h / 40 mph. It could pull up to twelve cars. After 22 successful years of operation retirement caught up with it in 1857 and soon after that it was scrapped. Starting in 1933, the DRG had a reproduction built largely true to the original for the 100th anniversary of railroading in Germany in 1935. This was done at the maintenance facility in Kaiserslautern and included the cars to go with the locomotive. In addition to differences in technical data, the reproduction differed from the original chiefly in a thicker boiler wall for the sake of safety, additional transverse bracing, and spoke wheels made of steel. This was the steaming "Adler" reproduction at the one hundred year anniversary, 25 years later at the 125th anniversary, and, after being overhauled, the 150th anniversary of the first years of railroading in Germany. The operational reproduction of the Adler was heavily damaged, among other locomotives, in a fire at the museum depot in Nürnberg-Gostenhof on October 17, 2005. The DB's board of directors decided to restore it however. At least 80 percent of the original parts from 1935 could be used again for the restoration. In the process the new "Adler" became even closer to the prototype in details than the burned up locomotive. For example, the reconstruction of the smoke stack did not follow the reproduction of 1935 but was closer to the original. Only the two burned up cars built largely of wood had to be built completely from scratch. The new "Adler" as well as an old (1935) and two new (2007) passenger cars have been located since November 23, 2007 in a locomotive shed again close to the DB Museum in Nürnberg.

Märklin 1: 58048 "Rheingold" Express Train Passenger Car Set

ToToTrains price: $1930.00

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) express train passenger cars painted and lettered for the TEE. 1 type Avüm 111 compartment car with a rounded roof, 1 type Avüm 111 compartment car with a perpendicular roof, 1 type ADüm vista dome car with 8 dome windows.

Model: These TEE "Rheingold" cars look as they did around 1967. The roof shapes, side walls, underbodies, and skirting are specific to the type of car. The trucks are Minden-Deutz designs with brake shoes, magnetic rail brakes, and separately applied generators. The vista dome car (type ADüm) has 8 roof windows. The car roofs can be removed from the cars. These four-axle express train passenger cars are not available separately. All of the cars have detailed interiors and built-in interior lighting. The cars have guide mechanisms for the couplers in order to provide close-coupled car spacing. The cars are ready for installation of reproduction prototype couplers. Minimum radius for operation 1,020 mm / 40-3/16". Total length over the buffers 225.0 cm / 88-9/16".


Highlights:
Highly detailed construction.
Prototypical train composition.
Class E 03 locomotive goes well with these cars.
Other cars available to add to these cars.

The TEE "Rheingold". After the Rheingold long distance express was upgraded to the Trans Europe Express, the comfortable, 26.4 meter / 86 foot 7-3/8 inch long cars developed by the DB on the basis of the UIC-X cars starting in 1962 were repainted in the TEE colors. They continued in use on the classic Rheingold route. This deluxe train still consisted exclusively of cars with 1st class seating. The additional cars delivered from 1965 on also had air conditioning and could be identified externally by their perpendicular roof ends. The generous seating offered passengers almost unlimited comfort. In addition to the exquisite culinary delights offered in the dining car, the vista dome car was of course also very popular with passengers. This car with the higher position of its seats offered a panorama view of the scenic beauty on the middle Rhine Valley and made the long travel time seem shorter. The train attracted attention in many places and was pulled by class 112 (E 10.12) locomotives. Starting in 1972, the German Federal Railroad made use of its flagship as motive power for the TEE Rheingold: the class 103. On the SBB lines in Switzerland, where the train's routing went to Geneva for a time, an Re 4/4 I in TEE colors pulled this deluxe train. A lounge car and a club car purchased for the side train running between Munich and Mannheim starting in 1983 added to the repertoire of TEE cars. However, the demand for a purely 1st class train sank increasingly. In 1987, the TEE Rheingold finally bowed out from the German Federal Railroad for good with the introduction of the EuroCity trains.

The class E 03 electric locomotive, item no. 55104, is an excellent complement to the Rheingold cars. Two additional Rheingold cars are available under item no. 58049.
