Today - 30 years later - the Märklin Dealer Initiative still stands for innovative and interesting products.The new MHI logo will adorn all MHI special productions in the future and stand as a symbol for an innovative, fresh, and modern future. A new model has been created to go with it. It is intended to symbolize both tradition and modernity. A very current class 247 diesel locomotive (Vectron DE) in the timeless paint scheme of the classic V 200, prototype for one of the best known Märklin models. Naturally, this model is being issued in limited quantities only one time for the Märklin Dealer Initiative.

Comment: It was and still is something special - the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) Re 6/6. For a long time it was viewed as the most powerful electric locomotive in the world and still has this rating in Switzerland. Naturally, such a high performance as 8,020 kilowatts / 10,755 horsepower could only be applied to six axles, hence the rather unusual wheel arrangement of B-B-B for central European circumstances in order to combine the resultant tractive effort with good running characteristics on curves. The center truck had to have appropriate side play and the three trucks are connected to one another by means of elastic cross couplings.Based on these specifications, the SBB ordered four different prototypes in 1969 from SLM (mechanical parts) and from BBC (electrical parts). These four units were placed into service by the fall of 1972 and were then exhaustively tested. After a final version began to emerge, the SBB ordered 45 production units of the Re 6/6 from SLM/BBC as early as February 23, 1973. Delivery of them began in 1975, was carried out within two years, and was completed by 1977. Delivery of the second series of 40 Re 6/6 locomotives (road numbers 11650 - 11689) took place immediately thereafter from the end of 1977 to the end of 1980.From then on heavy EC, IC, and express trains as well as the heaviest freight trains with up to 1,600 metric tons were the domain of the Re 6/6 locomotives on the Gotthard and Simplon lines. This did not change until the turn of the century when all of the Re 6/6 units were assigned by 2003 to the new freight service group SBB Cargo. It is still impressive today, when an Re 6/6 fights its way up the ramps of the Gotthard with a long freight train. Even more impressive is the so-called "Re 10/10", the double-heading of an Re 4/4II and an Re 6/6, which has become an everyday sight at least on the Gotthard line. The productivity of this combination is only limited by the maximum load on the couplers of 1,400 metric tons on a 2.6% grade. Otherwise, the two locomotives could haul another several hundred tons over the mountain. Many locomotive engineers swear by the ten powered axles and the decent weight. They always prefer it to the nominally similar output of B-B m.u. combinations of the newest design.

Comment: The Class 41The 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, 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.

Highlights:
  • One-time series of the "Big Boy" road number 4014, with oil firing, put back into operation by Union Pacific in the prototype
  • Prototypical execution of the model.
The image of the locomotive is digitally retouched.Notes for operating this locomotive: The locomotive can be used on curved track with a radius of 360 mm / 14-3/16" or more. However, we recommend larger radii. Due to the overhang of the long boiler, signals, catenary masts, bridge railings, tunnel portals, etc. must be installed for sufficient clearance on curves. The track must be well mounted due to the heavy weight of the locomotive. The locomotive can only be run through a turntable or transfer table.Products bearing "Union Pacific" are made under trademark license from the Union Pacific Railroad Company.

Comment: The "Big Boy", Road Number 4014The Union Pacific Railroad (UP) class 4000 known as the "Big Boy" is surely one of the most popular American steam giants, if not even worldwide. Initially, 20 of this articulated locomotive (road numbers 4000-4019) with a 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement were built in 1941 at ALCO resulting from the continuation of the "Challenger" concept, the extremely successful UP articulated locomotive with a 4-6-6-4 wheel arrangement. Another small series of five units (road numbers 4020-4024) followed in 1944. The conception of the "Big Boys" resulted from the usual requirements as with all other American large locomotive designs: Fewer locomotives were supposed to pull heavier trainloads at higher speeds. The UP bought the 25 units only for a single line: From Cheyenne, Wyoming 830 km / 519 miles west through the foothills of the Rocky Mountains across Sherman Hill to Ogden, Utah. The result was thus a gigantic unit for fast freight service with a service weight of 548 tons (including the tender). In July of 1959, the Big Boy era was finally past and the fire in all of the locomotives was put out. Yet on May 10, 2019, the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad ("150 Years of the Golden Spike") was due to be celebrated. After all, the Union Pacific was one of the two railroads, which had accomplished this grandiose achievement. Therefore, something spectacular should honor this event fittingly. Thus in 2013 the first rumors started that a "Big Boy" was supposed to be put into operation again. At least eight units were still in existence.The UP's steam locomotive specialists checked out each of the eight surviving locomotives in order to find the best candidate for restoration. Finally, the final selection fell to road number 4014 at the RailGiants Train Museum in Pomona, since the mild California climate had attacked the locomotive the least and its boiler was in the best condition of all the preserved units. However, the locomotive now had to be transported to Cheyenne. Its transfer to Cheyenne was finally over on May 8, 2014 after a trip of several days. It was soon determined that about 60% of the parts had to be replaced due to decades of standing idle and the rest required a complete restoration. The UP steam shops with its nine workers originally planned five years for the restoration of the Big Boy. Yet, a main overhaul of the UP steam locomotive, road number 844, had to be done in the same timeframe, so that in the end putting road number 4014 back into operating condition required a timeframe of only two and a half years. It was not until February 6, 2019 that an important milestone could be successfully mastered in the restoration of road number 4014. It passed the water pressure test for the boiler. The work now accelerated rapidly. On April 9, the oil burner for road number 4014 was lit for the first time. Yet time was getting short, because the locomotive was supposed to be seen under steam on May 9 at a big event in Ogden. A short test was thus scheduled for road number 4014 on May 2 and was successfully completed. According to estimates, the UP had had to spend at least four million US dollars for the restoration. Yet from this day on this railroad was again running the largest and most powerful operational steam locomotive in the world in its roster. The special run of road number 4014 together with road number 844 May 4 - 19 from Cheyenne to Ogden and back for the anniversary "150 Years of the Golden Spike" formed a first absolute highlight and of course also a mass spectacle.

Comment: Diesel Locomotive Class 66 (EMD JT42CWR)In 1985, the American builder Electro-Motive Division (EMD), a 100% subsidiary of General Motors (GM), built an affordable diesel locomotive for the first time for the British market. The result was a six-axle diesel electric unit of the type EMD JT26CW-SS in a squared off design and with a 2,460 kilowatt / 3,297 horsepower GM 16-645E3C diesel motor. It was designated as the class 59 and its external dimensions fit the smaller British clearance gauge. As a basis, EMD used the type SD40-2 American diesel locomotives built in large quantities, which were very reliable due to their proven, simple construction. EMD initially overhauled and improved the class 59 in the mid-Nineties for British rail companies as externally largely unchanged locomotives with a 2,350 kilowatt / 3,150 horsepower GM motor, type 12N-710G3B-EC as the class 66 (Type JT42CWR), which initially went into operation starting in 1998 on the British EVU. Its diesel motor powered an M AR8/CA6 type three-phase generator, which provided the electrical power for the six series-wound commutator traction motors, which were mounted in the trucks and drove the wheelsets by means of an axle-hung gearbox. Their three-axle trucks had radially adjustable end wheelsets and a middle wheelset with side play. The two end cabs were connected with each other by a corridor through the engine room. The engineer sat on the left side instead of the right because the locomotives were originally designed only for use Great Britain. With a maximum speed of 120 km/h / 75 mph, they could keep up with other trains on electrified main lines.Due to tougher exhaust regulations starting January 1, 2009, in 2005 this type series had to be overhauled in order to comply with the exhaust standard in effect at that time, EU Level IIIa. The result by the end of 2005 was the lower emissions variation as JT42CWRM (in Great Britain: JT42CWR-T1) with an improved 2,420 kilowatt / 3,244 horsepower type 12-710G3B-T2 diesel motor. The locomotives also had better sound insulation in the cabs, optional installation of an air conditioning system, a third door on one side due to partial removal of the continuous side corridor in the locomotive body, two-part side cab windows, as well as larger ventilation fan louvres.The first railroad company to bring the class 66 to Germany was the Cologne Harbor and Freight Service, Inc. (HGK), today RheinCargo, Inc. (RCH). In 1999, this railroad company initially leased 2 locomotives as road numbers DE 61 and 62, which it then bought in 2000/01. At almost the same time, the class 66 came into other European countries and you can thus presently find these locomotives in France, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, and Sweden. Forty-one of the JT42CWRM even reached Egypt. By the time production was stopped in 2016, 651 units had been delivered to European customers, 436 units as JT42CWR and 215 units as JT42CWR(M/-T1). Many class 66 locomotives belong to leasing companies such as Porterbrook Leasing Company, Eversholt Rail, Beacon Rail Leasing, or Macquarie European Rail, which lease the locomotives to third parties in numerous European countries. Paint schemes and lettering therefore vary a great deal and change constantly.

Comment: Class 95.0 Oil Freight Train Steam Tank LocomotiveAfter successful use of the "Animal Class" tank locomotives (DR 95.66) by the Halberstadt-Blankenburg Railroad (HBE) on its steep route the Rübeland Line, the (Prussian) central railroad office in Berlin also decided on a tank locomotive with five coupled driving axles and contracted with Borsig to design a 2-10-2T tank locomotive with an 18 metric ton axle load. This design was then carried out with only a few changes as the "Prussian T 20". The desired high axle load of 18 metric tons showed that this new locomotive obviously was not intended to replace cogwheel operation with adhesion operation. The roadbed for all Prussian cogwheel lines would have had to be replaced, since they were not authorized for such high axle loads. The plan was more for a powerful unit for motive power and pusher work on steep main lines. The DRG did indeed already exist at the time of the order with Borsig, but the T 20 rightly counts as the last Prussian steam locomotive design with the typical features of the last level of development for Prussian locomotive building: a bar frame and a Belpaire firebox.In 1923/24, Borsig delivered 18 and Hanomag 27 units. The DRG took ownership of all 45 units with the road numbers 95 001-045. They were used chiefly on the steep lines in the Thuringian Forest, the Franconian Forest, the Geislingen Grade, and on the Schiefe Ebene near Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg. After 1945, 14 of these locomotives came to the subsequent DB and 31 locomotives remained on the DR in the GDR. Due to the importance of these units for the DR, there were various improvements in the following years: Between 1957 and 1965, the water tanks and coalbunkers on all of the units were redone in a welded version. Between 1964 and 1973, 24 units had oil firing installed, ten units had new boilers installed, and two were even equipped with new welded cylinders. Starting in July of 1970, the oil-fired locomotives ran as the class 95.00, and the unconverted units and all units with coal firing already in storage were theoretically the class 95.10. By 1980/81, the last oil locomotives were in use at Probstzella. At least five units remained preserved, whereby road number 95 027 of the DB Museum has been available in operational condition again since 2010 for special train use on the Rübeland Line.

Comment: Class 18.4 Steam LocomotiveThe first unit left the builder in July of 1908. By 1911, Maffei delivered another 16 almost structurally identical units in three production runs. In a departure from the first locomotives, 18 units (Series d and e, Maffei 1912/1913, road numbers 3624-3641) were equipped with driving wheels with a diameter of 2,000 mm / 78-3/4". This caused the boiler on these units to be higher.The "High Stepper" S 3/6 placed into service in 1912/13 developed into the masterpiece of Bavarian express locomotives. They proved to be marvelous long-distance runners and were virtually predestined for fast trains especially. They thus immediately hauled without stopping the D 57/58 between Munich and Würzburg (277 km / 173 miles in 3 hours 20 minutes) as well as the D 79/80 between Munich and Nürnberg (199 km / 124 miles in 2 hours 15 minutes). Unfortunately, World War I ended these marvelous performances a little later. On the DRG the remaining units with small wheels were given the road numbers 18 401-434, 18 461-478, and 18 479-548, the "High Steppers" the road numbers 18 441-458. With a few short-lived exceptions, the latter remained true to their Bavarian homeland. Even though all of the "High Steppers" survived World War II, hardly a unit experienced the German Railroad period. Almost all were retired in the first postwar years. One exception was road number 18 451, for starting in February of 1950 it was made available to the Locomotive Research Institute in Göttingen. There, it did a series of excellent runs. Among them, the long-distance run of May 2, 1951 still occupies a remarkable position. The running times of the newly introduced Ft 56 express powered railcar were specified for the new bi-level train to be hauled from Hamburg to Munich. Actually, road number 18 451 was able to maintain the running times of the Ft and in part even undercut them somewhat. The absolute most remarkable thing on this run was covering an 820 km / 513 mile long route in the long-distance run with a locomotive that had just reached 40 years old and without dumping cinders in between. Actually, the fire was still so good upon arrival in Munich that road number 18 451 could have done another 100 to 200 km / 63 to 125 miles. Starting in April of 1952, the research institute was then able to do without the locomotive and it was put into storage. By 1958, it was immaculately refurbished at the repair facility in Ingolstadt, put back to its original condition, and transferred to the German National Museum in Munich as a donation, where it currently occupies a place of honor as the only surviving "High Stepper".

Comment: SBB Class RAm Diesel Powered Railcar Train, TEE "EDELWEISS"After the introduction on June 2, 1957 of a high-quality TEE network agreed in 1954, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) and the Dutch Railways (Nederlandse Spoorwegen - NS) agreed in 1955 on the joint development of a new diesel powered railcar train in the configuration VT+VM+VM+VS. The power units were built by Werkspoor in Amsterdam. Switzerland with SIG in Neuhausen for the intermediate cars and the cab control car and Brown-Boveri in Baden for the electrical equipment was responsible for the rest of the train. The striking shape of the ends of the end cars is due to the industrial designer Elsebeth van Blerkom employed at Werkspoor, which took the egg shape as a prototype. The body of the power car was done as a torsion-resistant, self-supporting tube design with a cab, engine room, baggage compartment, rest areas, and an employee's toilet. In the engine room were two supercharged Werkspoor type RUHB 1616 diesel motors with 16 cylinders in a V form (each motor 1,000 horsepower / 735 kilowatts). The flange-mounted main generators respectively provided the current for two each BBC traction motors (each 292 kilowatts continuous output), which were geared to the end wheelsets of both three-axle trucks. A third four-stroke diesel motor, Werkspoor type RUB 168, with eight cylinders and 300 horsepower output powered the onboard network, the air conditioning, and the dining car galley by means of a generator. The bodies for the intermediate cars and the cab control car were also constructed as self-supporting, stiff tube designs similar to the SBB lightweight steel cars and they were equipped with a standard SBB truck design. In order to provide passengers with pleasant travel, special comfort features were made available such as double-glazing of the large windows with blinds in between, which could be operated easily by passengers by means of a crank handle. Each car had air conditioning to maintain a constant temperature and continuous freshening of the air. All of the individual seats were extendable, equipped with adjustable seatbacks, and covered with top quality upholstery material.All five powered railcar trains (SBB RAm 501-502, NS DE IV 1001-1003) were based in Zürich and used for the following TEE trains: "EDELWEISS" Zürich - Amsterdam, June 1957 - May 1974), "toile du Nord" (Amsterdam - Paris, June 1957 - August 1964), "L'Oiseau bleu" (Paris - Amsterdam, June 1957 - May 1964), "L'ArbalŠte" (Zürich - Paris, August 1964 - September 1969), and "Bavaria" (Zürich - Munich, August 1969 - February 1971). After the disastrous accident of the "Bavaria" at Aitrang on the evening of February 9, 1971, the remaining trains were still in use until the end of May 1974 as the TEE "EDELWEISS". In 1977, they were sold to the Canadian Ontario Northland Railway for use on their 388 kilometer / 242 mile long line Toronto - Timmins. After the end of their use in 1992, two cab control cars, two compartment cars, and a dining car were brought back to Europe in 1998, where they are currently being refurbished in the Netherlands.

The class RAm TEE diesel powered railcar train is being produced in 2020 in a one-time series only for Insider members.

Comment: The fourth ICE generation started at the end of 2016 with initially two twelve-part units in the testing and introduction phase. The ICE 4 (class 412) built by Siemens in cooperation with Bombardier is designed for use on lines with strong demand. In the future, it is supposed to replace urgently in succession the ICE 1 and ICE 2 and thus become the future backbone of the long-distance fleet. As a powered rail car train, the ICE 4 is set up for the greatest possible level of adaptability. An essential requirement for this are the so-called powered cars, where the main propulsion and current supply components such as transformers, traction current converters, traction cooling equipment, and the four traction motors are constructed identically and mounted beneath the car body. At present, the twelve-part trains being delivered consist of six "power cars", the dining car, the service car, two unpowered intermediate cars, and the two end control cars. The ICE 4 cars at 27.9 meters / 91 feet are somewhat longer than the previous ICE types at 26.4 meters / 86 feet. In conjunction with a new seating system, a larger seating capacity could be created while keeping the same legroom and creating more storage space for baggage.Despite its high seating capacity, the ICE 4 is comparably lighter, since both its modular features, the lightweight trucks with inboard mounting, the powered trucks optimally designed for weight, and the further development of aerodynamic design provide savings in weight and energy. Compared to its predecessors, it needs up to 22% less energy. The non-powered trucks further developed from the Bombardier type FLEXX Eco with their low unsprung mass and very low weight contribute to a low energy consumption design and the option to apply streamlined skirting to them. By contrast, the sturdy powered trucks on the ICE 4 is a further development of the proven SF 500 family from Siemens and they fulfill the high requirements for bearing load and propulsion power. The electronic train control comes from SIBAS PN, the innovative railroad automation system from Siemens. This system hierarchically consists of the two levels ETB Train Bus (Ethernet Train Bus) with the various control components as well as the conventional train control (control lines, contactors, switches) and the train bus PROFINET, whereby everything is designed with redundancy.After several changes of contract, the DB ordered 1,511 ICE 4 cars, which were assembled into 50 twelve-part and 50 thirteen-part (seven power cars) as well as 37 seven-part (three power cars) trains. Two remaining end control cars are planned as reserve units. The ICE 4 trains are designed for a maximum speed of 250 km/h / 156 mph, but if needed they can have the motor gearing altered on the traction motors to 265 km/h / 166 mph. The twelve-part units are currently being delivered first. The first seven-part trains will then follow in succession. Delivery of the thirteen-part trains is supposed to begin in 2021, when delivery of the 50 twelve-part trains will have been completed.

The basic train for the ICE 4 high-speed train can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22971. Available starting in the 2nd half of 2020.

An essential requirement for this are the so-called powered cars, where the main propulsion and current supply components such as transformers, traction current converters, traction cooling equipment, and the four traction motors are constructed identically and mounted beneath the car body. At present, the twelve-part trains being delivered consist of six "power cars", the dining car, the service car, two unpowered intermediate cars, and the two end control cars. The ICE 4 cars at 27.9 meters / 91 feet are somewhat longer than the previous ICE types at 26.4 meters / 86 feet. In conjunction with a new seating system, a larger seating capacity could be created while keeping the same legroom and creating more storage space for baggage.Despite its high seating capacity, the ICE 4 is comparably lighter, since both its modular features, the lightweight trucks with inboard mounting, the powered trucks optimally designed for weight, and the further development of aerodynamic design provide savings in weight and energy. Compared to its predecessors, it needs up to 22% less energy. The non-powered trucks further developed from the Bombardier type FLEXX Eco with their low unsprung mass and very low weight contribute to a low energy consumption design and the option to apply streamlined skirting to them. By contrast, the sturdy powered trucks on the ICE 4 is a further development of the proven SF 500 family from Siemens and they fulfill the high requirements for bearing load and propulsion power. The electronic train control comes from SIBAS PN, the innovative railroad automation system from Siemens. This system hierarchically consists of the two levels ETB Train Bus (Ethernet Train Bus) with the various control components as well as the conventional train control (control lines, contactors, switches) and the train bus PROFINET, whereby everything is designed with redundancy.After several changes of contract, the DB ordered 1,511 ICE 4 cars, which were assembled into 50 twelve-part and 50 thirteen-part (seven power cars) as well as 37 seven-part (three power cars) trains. Two remaining end control cars are planned as reserve units. The ICE 4 trains are designed for a maximum speed of 250 km/h / 156 mph, but if needed they can have the motor gearing altered on the traction motors to 265 km/h / 166 mph. The twelve-part units are currently being delivered first. The first seven-part trains will then follow in succession. Delivery of the thirteen-part trains is supposed to begin in 2021, when delivery of the 50 twelve-part trains will have been completed.

The basic train for the ICE 4 high-speed train can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 25976. Available starting in the 2nd half of 2020.

Class V 160 Diesel Locomotive
Class V 160 Diesel Locomotive

Prototype: Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class V 160 "Lollo" general-purpose locomotive in the pre-production version. Paint scheme for the prototype series. The sides of the locomotive have different arrangements of vents and windows. Road number V 160 006. The locomotive looks as it did in 1961.

Model: Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. The locomotive also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, centrally mounted. All 4 axles powered by means of cardan shafts. Traction tires. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The headlights at Locomotive End 2 and 1 can be turned off separately in digital operation. When the headlights at both ends are turned off, then the "Double 'A' Light" function is on at both ends. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. Metal grab irons are separately applied on the sides and ends. The locomotive has detailed buffer beams. Brake hoses that can be mounted on the locomotive are included. Length over the buffers approximately 18.4 cm / 7-1/4".

Comment: In 1956, the German Federal Railroad's central office in Munich reached agreement with the locomotive builder Krupp in Essen on the development of a single-motor general-purpose diesel locomotive. The original plan was for a unit with a nominal performance of 1,600 horsepower and a class designation of V 160 corresponding to the usage at that time. It was to have two cabs, two two-axle trucks, a maximum speed of 120 km/h / 75 mph, a maximum length over the buffers of around 16,000 mm / 52 feet 6 inches as well as sufficient train heating for an express train of ten cars. In 1960/61, the firm of Krupp delivered six prototypes as road numbers V 160 001-006. They were equipped with different 1,900 horsepower motors and gear drives. In 1962/63, four more units (V 160 007-010) from Henschel followed. The first nine locomotives had a fully rounded hood underneath the end windows that quickly gave them the nickname "Lollo" (from the Italian movie actress Gina Lollobrigida). The tenth locomotive by contrast showed the squared modern look from road number V 320 001. This became the typical identifier of the entire V 160 family. The pre-production locomotives designated as 216 001-010 starting in 1968 were retired between 1978 and 1984. Road numbers V 160 003 (DB Museum), V 160 001, 004, and 006 (Italy) as well as road number V 160 002 since brought back to Germany again remained preserved. After an extensive overhaul by September 2015, it is now the only operational "Lollo" in Germany. The rest of the pre-production locomotives were scrapped.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22162.

Comment: 39786 - DB Tank Locomotive Road Number 78 516 Designed originally in 1911 for faster handling of passenger train service on the Isle of Rügen, the T 18 resulted in one of the most successful German tank locomotives with its symmetrical design with three coupled wheel sets, two trucks, large fuel and water tanks, and a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 62.5 mph in both directions of travel. It had two-cylinder hot steam running gear with externally mounted, horizontal cylinders positioned between the wheel sets of the pilot truck. Propulsion went to the second coupled wheel set and there was a two-axle truck front and rear, each with 40 mm / 1-9/16" of side play. The T 18 had a rugged frame. The annoying jerks still present on the prototype of 1912 at speeds of more than 60 km/h 37.5 mph were soon reduced by improved mass balancing. The T 18 was therefore authorized for 100 km/h / 62.5 mph despite its relatively small driving wheel diameter of 1,650 mm / 65".By 1927, the DRG rostered all total 460 Prussian (and clones) as well as 20 Württemberg T 18 units as road numbers 78 001-282 and 351-528. In 1935, the Saar units (78 283-328) were added. After nationalization of the Eutin-Lübeck Railroad (ELE) in 1941, the DRG acquired its T 18 units as 78 329 and 330. About 420 units survived in the Western Zones after the end of World War II. After retiring locomotives damaged in the war, the DB still rostered 377 operational units on July 1, 1950, including 32 units on the railroad in Saarland. By the mid-Sixties, the class 78 units were an everyday sight in many railroad districts.Road number 78 516 serving as the Märklin prototype was part of the next to the last delivery of the T 18. It was built in 1924 like almost all units at the Stettin Vulcan Works and had almost the last design of the former Prussian units with improved roof vents by virtue of a rectangular installation with adjustable hatches on the cab roof. It also had three domes (sand box, steam dome, and feed water dome) on the top of the boiler, older design buffers, continuous Knorr compressed air brakes, and De Limon lubrication pumps. Road number 78 516 took up service in the Essen District, which it kept all of its working life. Its assignments were Mülheim/Ruhr-Speldorf, Oberhausen Main Station, Dortmund (there equipped with shuttle train control), Duisburg Main Station, Essen Main Station, and finally Paderborn. From the end of 1958 to the start of 1965, the Essen District roster had always vacillated between 50 and 62 units, of which at least 20 were shuttle train locomotives. Starting in July of 1966, only Paderborn in the Essen District still hosted operational T 18 units, including road number 78 516. Yet it was also evident there that these locomotives could no longer be used rationally. Road number 78 516 was soon put in storage on March 1, 1967 and retired shortly thereafter on May 22, 1967.

Comment: Class 701 Powered Catenary Maintenance Rail CarWith advancing electrification, powered catenary maintenance rail cars for maintenance work on the electrified route network took on increasing importance on the new German Federal Railroad. Starting in 1954, the firm Waggon- und Maschinenbau GmbH in Donauwörth (WMD) working in a contract and in close cooperation with the German Federal Railroad's central office in Munich therefore developed the so-called standard powered catenary maintenance rail car (TVT, also VT 55 or VT 93, from 1968 on: 701). These units made wide use of design elements of the two-motor VT 98 rail busses. Since there was no question of electrical propulsion, combustion motors were selected as a source of propulsion. Two Büssing motors (type U9A) each with a performance of 95.5 kilowatts / 128 horsepower were still sufficient for the running gear on the first production series (701 001-010 and 024). On all of the successor series the two water-cooled motors mounted below the floor (Büssing type U10) with a total performance of 300 horsepower / 221 kilowatts were the same as the motors for the VT 98 (798). A special rpm speed regulator allowed a constant "creeping speed" of 5 km/h / 3 mph. The drive systems mounted in the frame were analogous to the VT 98 and were designed for a trailing load of 40 metric tons. In addition, this powered rail car could be used in switching maneuvers with a total trailing load of 200 metric tons. To do this the unit was equipped with standard drawbar and buffer equipment of a standard lightweight construction. There was a workshop between the two cabs of about 26 square meters / 260 square feet area, where you could climb into the viewing cupola to observe the catenary. In addition, there was a specially protected roof exit as well as a pantograph on the roof for grounding and testing. In the middle of the roof was a platform with almost 6 square meters / 60 square feet of area that could be raised and lowered in height and turned from side to side. It could be raised up to one meter / 39 inches. An extendable ladder was also present on this platform, and it could be used for work up to 15 meters / about 48 feet in height. A speaker system was installed for communication between the cab, the lookout, and the lifting platform. The car also had compressed air disk brakes, cold water heating, and two separate 12-volt power supply systems. By 1974, the DB purchased 162 dual-motored powered catenary maintenance rail cars, which were given the class designation 701 starting in 1968. Originally, all of the powered catenary maintenance rail cars had a crimson paint scheme (RAL 3004). Starting in 1975, they were successively repainted in the customary "Gold Yellow" (RAL 1004) as part of major maintenance for DB maintenance units. Starting in 2002, a lack of spare parts, and the advanced age of the units led to many being retired, which was completed in 2013 with the last powered catenary maintenance rail car being put into storage. Numerous class 701 units were sold to private railroad companies and museum railroads. They are thus now and then still in use for everyone to admire.
