The historic "Adler" passenger train is appearing in 2010 in a one-time series of 3,333 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.

This train can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 21236.

The express train D 92/93 "Bavaria" was running between Munich and Zürich as far back as the Fifties. With the start of the winter schedule in 1969 on September 28 the "Bavaria" was transformed into the TEE 55/56 with first class seating only in order to offer an attractive train for the business passengers between Munich and Switzerland's banking and trade center. With the increase in TEE traffic between Munich and Zürich the travel time could by reduced by just an hour compared to the previous express train connections – an impressive reduction in running time for this route with its difficult grades and lack of electrification in the DB area. Initially, the Swiss four-part TEE diesel powered rail car trains, classes RAm 501 and 502, were used, but this came to an abrupt end after the notorious railroad catastrophe at Aitrang on February 9, 1971. At that time the TEE 56 "flew" on its run from Munich to Zürich behind the Aitrang station in a sharp right hand curve with the cab control in the front at about 130 km/h / 81 mph from the tracks. The speed limit at this location was only 80 km/h / 50 mph. Due to the destruction of the TEE powered rail car train, a locomotive-hauled train of cars ran starting on Februar 16, 1971. The DB provided a compartment car (Avümh 111) and an open seating car (Apümh 121); an SBB RIC design dining car (WRm) supplemented the train. Initially, the dining car still ran in its red paint scheme, but it was soon painted in the TEE scheme. Starting with the summer schedule for 1971 the pair of trains ran as TEE 66/67. A class 210 gas turbine locomotive pulled the "Bavaria" in the non-electrified DB section Munich - Kempten - Lindau. Between Lindau and St. Margarethen the venerable ÖBB class 1180 electric locomotives with side rods initially reached TEE status until the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB/CFF/FFS) powered the "Bavaria" all the way between Lindau and Zürich with class Re 4/4 II locomotives in order to save the change of locomotives in St. Margarethen. Due to the wide zig-zag of the catenary wires on the short electrified DB section and on the Austrian part of the route, the Swiss used locomotives with the road numbers 11196 to 11201 which had been equipped with a pantograph with a wider contact strip for the cross border traffic to Lindau. Starting in the summer of 1972, the Re 4/4 I units in TEE colors with road numbers 10033 and 10034 became the motive power for the "Bavaria" out of Lindau. These locomotives also have a pantograph with a DB/ÖBB contact strip for the section of the route Lindau - St. Margarethen. On May 21, 1977 the "Bavaria" ran for the last time as a TEE. It was replaced with the start of the summer schedule for 1977 by the two-class express train pair D 266/D 267. The "Bavaria" experienced a new promotion – this time to EuroCity status – with the schedule change for 1987/88. Starting on May 24, 1987, it ran for the next 15 years as EC 98/99. This name with its rich tradition disappeared on December 14, 2002 when this pair of trains was discontinued.

This TEE train set can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 21238.
