One-time series.

Thirteen powered rail cars survived World War II. Nine remained in the West Zones; of them seven units were retired over the course of 1949. In 1950, German Federal Railroad still had two rail cars on its roster: the DT 1 (former road number 1000) and the DT 8 (former road number 1007). The latter hung on tenaciously and was still used in push/pull service until the end of 1953 on the Baden route Müllheim - Neuenburg. It was put in storage on January 2, 1954 and was retired on March 3, 1954. Powered rail cars DT 2, 3, and 9 (former road numbers 1001, 1002, and DW 15) remained after 1945 with the SNCF. The first two rail cars worked until 1956 under the designations XDR 10.102 and 10.103 in Mulhouse as powered rail cars for crews. The former DT 6 (former road number 1005) came on to the roster of the DR in 1949 as DT 151 after nationalization of the Oderbruch Railroad; it remained in storage and was scrapped in November of 1957 in Frankfurt/Oder. One Kittel powered rail car delivered to Switzerland is still preserved there in operational condition.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22258.

One-time series.

After the first success with 2-axle, lightweight powered rail cars for branch lines, different firms delivered additional 2-axle units of different designs and performance to the German State Railroad Company (DRG) from 1932 on. The firm Waggonfabrik Bautzen built three series of diesel mechanical powered rail cars between 1933 and 1935. These units differed from one another only in small details. While the first series delivered (road numbers VT 135 002-011) had riveted frames and car bodies, the second series (road numbers VT 135 022-031) made use increasingly of welding technology. On the third series (VT 135 051-060) the frame and car body were assembled completely by the use of welding. Appropriate trailer cars as road numbers VB 140 032-047, 097-122 as well as 230-249 were delivered almost at the same time in three production groups. The first powered rail car series originally ran with a 120 horsepower Daimler diesel motor, later with the same type of motor as the two other groups, a Daimler motor with 135 horsepower. With one exception the motor extended into the car body on all of the powered cars and was covered by a folding back seat. On all three series a proven mechanical power transmission system was used in the form of a four-speed, pressure-activated gear change and gear reverse transmission from the firm of TAG. After the end of the war the DB took over cars from all three series and designated them from 1947 on as the class VT 75.9. Starting in the mid-Fifties all of the class VT 75.9 units were based at Regensburg and were even equipped with new Deutz type A 6 M 617 motors with 130 horsepower such as were used on small locomotives in Performance Group II. Of the original 16 cars re-classed by the DB there were still eleven on the roster at the start of 1960. Nine of them were retired by the DB in April and May of 1960. The last two VT 75.9 cars were not retired until March 30, 1962 at the Schwandorf maintenance center. The East German DR after the end of the war had by contrast only one powered rail car on their roster: Road number VT 135 054 (from 1970 on 186 257) was later rebuilt into a salon car at the maintenance center in Magdeburg and is now part of the museum inventory and can be found at the maintenance center in Staßfurt.

During their service lives the Red Arrows were rebuilt several times, were updated technically, and were given new class numbers. The first one was retired and scrapped in 1966 as the class RBe 2/4. By 1974 two units were left on the SBB's roster, of which one was sold to the OeBB and was in operation several more years in the unfamiliar blue paint scheme. One unit still exists as an historical powered rail car and harkens back to the time of the Red Arrows in the service of the Swiss Cross.

VT 10.5 - "Senator" by Day, "Komet" by Night. At the start of the Fifties, the German Federal Railroad (DB) developed two articulated powered rail car trains for long distance service. These two articulated powered rail car trains were presented for the first time at the German Transportation Exhibition (DVA) in Munich in 1953: The VT 10 501, built by Linke-Hofmann-Busch as a daytime train "Senator" for the DB, and the VT 10 551, built by Wegmann as the overnight train "Komet" for the German Sleeping Car and Dining Car Company (DSG). In addition to their use and paint scheme, these two trains also had design differences. While the cars for the "Senator" were equipped with single-axle running gear, the "Komet" had Jacobs trucks between the cars. The end cars on both trains each had a two-axle power truck. MAN diesel motors with originally a performance of 118 kilowatts / 158 horsepower, later with 154 kilowatts / 206 horsepower, were used in the motor cars. The maximum speed was 120 km/h / 75 mph; a planned increase to 160 km/h / 100 mph was not carried out. The power transmission was done hydraulically by means of a four-speed transmission. The "Senator" offered its passengers 135 seats in 1st class, 24 of them reclining seats. The trains went into regular service with the beginning of the summer schedule in 1954. The daytime train, road no. VT 10 501 as Ft 41/42 "Senator" on the route Frankfurt/Main - Hamburg, the overnight train as Ft 49/50 "Komet" between Hamburg and Basle (starting in the summer of 1955 to Zürich). The running characteristics of the overnight train received a positive evaluation. Those of the daytime train were the opposite according to DB documents: "All things considered, it is apparent that the freight car characteristics cannot be removed from this train." The "Senator" was in use until June of 1956, was rebuilt several times, and tested in experimental runs. In 1959, it was taken out of operation and in 1962 was scrapped. All of the cars from the two trains were scrapped except for the intermediate car VT 10 551i from the overnight train that is used by Nürnberg railroad enthusiasts as a home for their club. The experiences with the two Kruckenberg designs fed the development of the subsequent DB VT 11.5 TEE powered rail car train.

The 39101 4-part basic set for the daytime powered rail car train can be expanded to the prototypical 7-part unit with the 41101 add-on car set.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22809.
