The "Blue Star Train" or "Probably the Longest Restaurant in the World" Since April of 2006 the former TEE diesel powered rail car train (VT 11 5006, 5015 and intermediate cars) has been located as the so-called "Blue Star Train" (BST), a stationary restaurant, in the Augsburg railroad park. The earlier history of this former flagship of the German Federal Railroad reads almost like a fairy tale: The Augsburg gastronome Jürgen Drexler discovered the VT 11.5 in 2005 in Bodio in the Ticino region of Switzerland, where the train had been stored since June of 2004 and where it was greatly defaced in the meantime by vandalism and graffiti. After several months of negotiations the firm Eisenbahn­ und Sonderwagen­ Betriebsgesellschaft mbH (ESG) / Railroad and Special Car Operating Company, Inc., with its CEO Jürgen Drexler, succeeded in acquiring the train. The train acquired by ESG is the former IC "Max Liebermann" that was operated between Hamburg and Berlin under contract by the East German State Railroad (DR) in 1990 after the reunification and that thereby reawakened the TEE mystique. After that the interior of the train was adapted by Rail Italy Srl to the "Italy Express". After a further change of ownership to SBB Cargo Italia the train was transferred to Bodio in the Ticino region in June of 2004, where the train was stored until August of 2005. The ESG team was able to restore the VT 11.5 to a presentable state. In Switzerland this train was given the blue/white paint scheme in the old ESG company colors instead of the original red/beige TEE paint scheme. In August of 2005 the ESG was finally able to have the train moved to Augsburg. Since this "Swiss" VT 11.5 only had seven intermediate cars, the search was on for additional cars to augment the train and to provide more efficient operations. ESG found intermediate cars stored at the DB maintenance facility in Kassel and acquired them from the railroad. In Augsburg the individual former TEE powered rail car train end units and intermediate cars were examined in the fall of 2005 to determine which parts could still be used for the subsequent conversion. In the spring of 2006 restoration and conversion work was finished and an exclusive, operational restaurant train with the "dignified luxury" and the flair of the old TEE was the result. At the start of February 2010 the powered end car VT 11 5006 for the "Blue Star Train" was repainted in its front area in the classic TEE colors of red/beige and had the original TEE emblem applied to the nose. In contrast a BST logo in the style of the TEE emblem is mounted on the other powered end car. With this "exclusive" paint scheme the ESG is documenting impressively in the TEE anniversary year its close link to the 50 year old history of its train. It is in any event the first and only TEE powered rail car train in private hands and at the same time the only one painted in other than the original TEE colors.

The 37608 basic set can extended to a maximum 10 part train with the 43118 add-on car set.

The Class 41 The locomotive building industry developed the class 41 2-8-2 locomotive for fast freight trains as part of the DRG's standardized locomotive program. Schwartzkopff delivered two sample units in 1936. The frame was a new development; the boiler was the same as on the class 03, but was designed on the class 41 for 20 atmospheres or 290 pounds pressure per square inch. The axle load could be set at 18 tons or 20 tons per axle. The resulting class 41 was for the first time a general-purpose locomotive that could be used anywhere. The two pre-production units were followed by 364 regular production locomotives that were improved somewhat and that were delivered by almost all of the German locomotive builders by 1941. These locomotives could run at 90 km/h or 56 mph and had 1,900 horsepower; they were used almost everywhere. After World War II there were 216 locomotives on the DB's roster. It was soon found out that the type St47K boilers were worn out. Since the class 41 was indispensable, the DB developed a completely welded, high-performance boiler with a combustion chamber. Compared to the previous long tube boiler, this version had a higher ratio of premium radiant heating surface and could therefore support a greater load. Between 1957 and 1961 a total of 102 class 41 locomotives were equipped with this new boiler at the maintenance facility in Braunschweig. Together with the front skirting being removed, this resulted in a considerably new look for the class 41 locomotives. 40 of these converted locomotives were also equipped for oil firing. The last grate-fired converted units were retired in 1971.

An auto transport car set to go with this freight steam locomotive can be found under item no. 45098.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22928.
