The Class 232 – Ludmilla in Germany. In contrast to the West, where electric motive power was favored, most of the East went with diesel locomotives in order to replace uneconomical steam operations. A new large diesel locomotive family, including the present German Railroad, Inc. class 232, was purchased from Russia for the German State Railroad of East Germany in an agreement with RGW between 1972 and 1982 in several production runs. This immense, six-axle, almost 21 meter / 69 foot long diesel electric locomotive with its 6 traction motors has a continuous rating of up to 2,940 kilowatts / 3,943 horsepower, depending on the production run, and a maximum speed of up to 140 km/h / 88 mph. In East Germany these locomotives were used for both freight trains and express passenger trains, as long as the locomotives had train heating equipment. The latter were not installed on all locomotives due to delivery difficulties at the Soviet builder in Woroschilowgrad. The great weight of these locomotives and their axle load of 20 metric tons did not allow them to be used everywhere, and the East German State Railroad had to resort to the classes 118 and 119, depending on the condition of the roadbed for the route in question. The East German State Railroad personnel gave this Russian locomotive the name "Ludmilla", which apparently started at the maintenance facility in Leipzig and is still used with affection today for this locomotive family. A quantity of 709 units of the class 132, the later class 232, were built and were acquired by the DB AG due to the train heating equipment installed on them. They are still in use in many locations while the other production runs have already been retired or sold. Several locomotives were also given a thorough overhaul and new motors. They currently represent the new classes 233, 234, and 241, and provide service together with the Russian class 232 Ludmillas on the German railroad.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22072.

The class V 188 double locomotives (from 1968 on: class 288) enriched the motive power roster of the German Federal Railroad as exotic diesel electric units with a remarkable past. In 1939, Krupp had a contract to build two super cannons, which were the largest artillery cannons ever built: the railroad cannons "Dora" and "Schwerer Gustav 2" ("Heavy Gustaf 2") with an 80 cm / 31-1/2" caliber and a range of up to 47 km / 29 miles. In 1941, this contract was supplemented by another, somewhat smaller cannon with the name "Langer Gustav" ("Long Gustav"). Three trains were required to bring a giant cannon with a weight of around 1,350 metric tons to its emplacement. The Germany army ordered six double locomotives with diesel electric power transmission from Krupp to haul the train and to provide electrical power for setup and use of the immense cannons. Each type D 311 locomotive unit consisted of two close-coupled halves with rigid frames and four wheel sets. Each half had a 940 hp PS starker, turbo-charged six-cylinder series motor from MAN. This unit drove a DC generator, which in turn powered the four traction motors suspended from the axles. The electrical equipment for the locomotives came from the Siemens-Schuckert plant in Berlin. Engineer's cabs were only present on the outer ends of the "Twin Locomotives". The first two double locomotives, road nos. D 311.01A/B and 02A/B, were delivered in October of 1941; two more followed in August of 1942. It was not possible to build the last two unit as well as the third cannon, since Krupp's production facilities had been largely destroyed by air attacks. The first, totally oversized cannon built, "Dora" was only used once on the front at Sevastopol and was blown up in 1945 along with its sister cannon. Three of the four double locomotives did survive the war, and two of them were overhauled at Krauss-Maffei between 1948 and 1951. The DB assigned them the road numbers V 188 001a/b (former D 311.03A/B), V 188 002a/b (former D 133.04A/B), and V 188 003a/b (former D 311.02A/B). The last unit mentioned was not overhauled but was kept a long time for spare parts. The two overhauled locomotives were initially assigned to the Aschaffenburg District and were used there for pusher service on the Spessart grade between Laufach and Heigenbrücken. Starting in 1953 they were used somewhat less successfully to haul freight trains to Schweinfurt, Bamberg, and Dillenburg. The old MAN motors increasingly caused problems. The two locomotives were therefore equipped with new 1,000 hp (later 1,100 hp) Maybach motors by 1957/58 as well as new gear drives from Gmeinder. After that they worked excellently and were used by the end of 1958 in the Aschaffenburg District, then in the Gemünden District, and from 1967/68 on in the Bamberg District in heavy freight service. After sustaining great damages the two war veterans had to be retired on September 25, 1969 (288 001) and on June 15, 1972 (288 002) as part of the general program to rationalize the motive power. Later they were scrapped.
