Märklin H0: 37040 Freight Train Steam Locomotive with a Tender
ToToTrains Price: $544.00

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 50.40 freight train steam locomotive. Converted version with a new design high performance boiler and a Franco-Crosti exhaust gas pre-heater, Witte smoke deflectors, DB reflex glass lamps, sand boxes located on the running boards, a smoke stack located on the side of the locomotive, and a rebuilt type 2´2´T 26 tender with coal bunker hatches. Road number 50 4005. The locomotive looks as it did around 1962.

Model: The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and extensive sound functions.

After intensive experiments with the two class 42.90 Franco-Crosti locomotives, the German Federal Railroad decided to convert several class 50 locomotives in the same manner. A Franco Crosti boiler is a conventional locomotive tank with a second boiler connected in the steam lines. It heats feed water with the assistance of smoke exhaust gases passing over the water. This second boiler is therefore called an exhaust gas pre-heater. The Italian designers Franco and Crosti built their first test units with this technology as early as the Thirties. The savings in coal were approximately 20 % with the improved efficiency. The flat smokestack for operation projects from one side of the boiler, which results in a rather striking appearance. The standard smokestack no longer serves to discharge smoke exhaust gases during operation, but is only required for firing up the locomotive. Relatively high operating costs resulted despite the increased efficiency, since the pre-heater boiler was easily subject to corrosion. A total of 31 locomotives were delivered to the German Federal Railroad by Henschel in 1954 and 1958, and were designated as the class 50.40. These two-cylinder, 90.6 metric tons heavy locomotives had a maximum speed of 80 km/h / 50 mph in both directions and an indexed performance of 1,540 pounds per square inch. They were used in the Münsterland area and in the Rhine area in freight train service until they were retired in 1967 and then scrapped.

Suitable dump car sets are also being offered exclusively only for Insider members under item nos. 46350 and 46351. When and only when you buy both of these freight cars, the 46982 freight train baggage car is also available free.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22051 exclusively for Trix Club members.

Highlights:
Completely new tooling.
Warm white LEDs for the headlights.
The 88783 diesel locomotive is being produced in a one-time series exclusively for Insider members.

After World War II the German Federal Railroad had to replace worn out, inefficient steam locomotives with diesel units because electrification had still not expanded very much and low fuel prices favored diesel motive power. The lightweight class 216 (former V 160) with its 1,900 horsepower, its speed of up to 120 km/h / 75 mph in high gear and up to 80 km/h / 50 mph in low gear distinguished itself from the V 200 and thereby was established as motive power on main lines. The initial tractive effort for the locomotive was 24 metric tons. With continuous tractive effort of 16 metric tons the class 216 was able to haul up to 1,200 metric tons on a 1.2% grade. Locomotive engineers also liked this locomotive because of its pleasantly low noise level.
