Comment: SJ Class Rc6 Electric LocomotiveIn the first half of the Sixties, the Swedish State Railways (SJ – Statens J„rnv„gar) worked intensively on replacing their old side rod electric locomotives. The Swedish locomotive builder ASEA built on this goal and came up with six four-axle test locomotives in 1962, the classes Rb1, Rb2, and Rb3 with the usual stepped relay control. Thyristor technology was certainly already in existence, but still not completely developed. Yet, a tentative conversion of road number Rb1 1001 in 1965 to control with thyristor rectifiers brought the desired success. It now allowed continuous acceleration of the locomotive to the desired speed with exact and variable control of the motor current without changing between various running modes. In addition, a continuous increase in pulling power could be achieved, which led to a 25% to 30% higher utilization of tractive effort. Additional advantages were less risk of slippage and lower maintenance.In the end, the unit now known as road number Rb1T 1005 now served as the prototype for the new class Rc, which was then bought from ASEA in six production runs with minor changes between 1967 and 1988. Road numbers Rc1 1007-1026, Rc2 1027-1056 and 1067-1136, Rc3 1057-1066, as well as Rc4 1137-1200 were all equipped with four each 900 kilowatt type LJH108 motors. With the exception of road numbers Rc3 1057-1066 (maximum speed 160 km/h / 100 mph), they had a maximum speed of 135 km/h / 84 mph. Road numbers Rc5 1323-1382 (135 km/h / 84 mph) and Rc6 1383-1422 (160 km/h / 100 mph) followed, also with four each 900 kilowatt type LJM450 motors, Rc5 1323-1382 (135 km/h / 84 mph) and Rc6 1383-1422 (160 km/h / 100 mph) now with new ergonomic cabs with air conditioning, end windows made of bulletproof glass, improved thyristor rectifiers and traction motors, a vehicle computer for malfunction reporting, as well as larger air intakes. All of the Rc units had a locomotive body mounted on the frame as a welded, self-supporting design with side walls reinforced by ribbing. These side walls had four round bull's eye windows and a door as well as small ventilation grills on the edge of the roof. The frame and locomotive body rest on a weight-sensing load bar, which rests on four coil springs and on two each two-axle trucks employing box girder construction.Over the years, there were various conversions and modifications. All total 23 Rc2 units mutated to Rc3 in the Nineties by changing the gear reduction to a maximum speed of 160 km/h / 100 mph. Between 1992 and 1995 all Rc5 units were converted to the class Rc6 in a similar fashion. With the division of the SJ into various business areas on January 1, 2001, the SJ AB (passenger train service) was given all Rc3 and Rc6 units. The former were all sold in 2014, and the latter are still used currently only in passenger train service as a rule. The freight service sector Green Cargo (GC) by contrast received the Rc1, Rc2, and Rc4 units. Most of the Rc1 units are in storage and are no longer on the Green Cargo roster, while most of the Rc2 units (since converted to Rd2) and Rc4 units are still to be found pulling GC freight trains.

Comment: The Class 06 Surprise Steam LocomotiveThe two units of the class 06 represent a superlative – they were the most powerful express steam locomotives built in Germany. Their origin goes back to 1934, when the DRG's main management, the German State Railroad Central Bureau for Engineering commissioned the purchase of two extremely powerful express units. They were to haul a 600 metric ton express train at 120 km/h / 75 mph on level terrain, be at least 135 km/h / 84 mph fast, and adhere to the standardization design principles. Finally, Krupp in Essen brought a design to fruition, which specified a length (locomotive and tender) of 26.520 meters / 87 feet due to the large boiler dimensions. This long super boiler was also used on the freight train locomotive class 45 developed parallel to the class 06. It therefore required running gear with four sets of driving wheels and a driving wheel diameter of 2,000 millimeters / 78-3/4 inches for the necessary maximum speed. Analogous to the classes 41 and 45 built at the same time, the boiler pressure was set at 20 bar / 290 pounds per square inch and the axle load for the driving wheels could be varied. By selecting other pivot points in the load balancing system, the axle load could be set at 18 or 20 metric tons to enable wider use of these locomotives. Three-cylinder running gear with two outer cylinders and a third inboard cylinder mounted horizontally and shifted to the front was used to achieve better weight balance and higher starting tractive effort. All of the cylinders had their own Heusinger valve gear, whereby the outer cylinders were applied to the second set of driving wheels and the inboard cylinder conversely was applied to the crank axle of the first set of driving wheels. Streamlining rounded out everything, whereby access to the driving wheels and the trailing truck was left open for the most part due to experience in the past.Considerable difficulties in the production of the boiler delayed starting operation of the two gigantic locomotives: on road number 06 001 until the early part of 1939, on road number 06 002 until even the summer of 1939. In retrospect, the impending war took the German State Railroad's focus off these two units. All the same, road number 06 001 was still tested starting in April of 1939 by the Grunewald Locomotive Testing Bureau for speeds of 80, 100, and 120 km/h / 50, 63, and 75 mph. On June 15, 1939 there was thus an operational test run with road number 06 001 and a train weight of 678 metric tons on the route Bebra – Frankfurt/Main – Bebra, whereby a cylinder performance of even 3,670 pounds per square inch was briefly reached. Boiler damage however ended the tests at the beginning of July of 1939 and they were not resumed due to the war. The German State Railroad then stationed both units at the Frankfurt/Main 1 maintenance facility and they were used on the routes to Erfurt and Wrzburg. Yet due to frequent boiler damages there were longer and longer downtimes. Both units survived the end of the war in storage, road number 06 002 even survived a bomb hit. An overhaul of these locomotives was not done since the subsequent DB saw no possible way to use these two giants. This story ended in 1951 with their retirement.

Comment: When the Gotthard Basis Tunnel was placed into service, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) announced internationally in the spring of 2012 the delivery of powered rail car trains with a maximum speed of 250 km/h / 156 mph. Eventually, the Swiss firm Stadler prevailed in April of 2014 with their concept SMILE (Schneller Mehrsystemf„higer Innovativer Leichter Expresszug / Fast Multisystem Innovative Lightweight Express Train), whereby Stadler built a high-speed train for the first time. The SBB ordered 29 eleven-part units of the new class RABe 501 for international service and assigned them the designation "Giruno" (derived from Rhaeto-Romanic "girùn" for "Buzzard"). The trains can run in four countries under three current systems (15 kilovolts / 16.7 Hertz, 25 kilovolts / 50 Hertz, and 3 kilovolts DC) and are equipped with the ETCS, PZB, LZB, and SCMT train safety systems for this.The "Giruno" is a 202 meter / 656 foot 6 inch long, single-level operationally permanent multi-unit train with Jakobs trucks. Only the end cars have normal trucks under their outer ends. Four Jakobs trucks are powered with three-phase, asynchronous motors, whereby the propulsion equipment is designed to be redundant with four traction rectifiers. An eleven-part class RABe 501 consists of four cars, 1st class, with 117 seats mostly in a 2+1 arrangement, a dining car, as well as six cars, 2nd class, with 288 seats in a 2+2- arrangement. The dining car as well as the two adjoining cars are constructed to meet handicapped requirements in order to satisfy the provisions of the Swiss handicapped access law. The "Giruno" has step-less entries for station platform heights of 55 cm / 22" and 76 cm / 30". Its pressure-resistant and air conditioned passenger areas and cab as well as the multifunction compartments and bicycle compartments in the passenger area set a new standard for comfortable travel by train. All of the passengers have a free view of the screens for the digital information system. In addition, cell phone signal boosters and WLAN are available in both classes.On May 10, 2021, the SBB took delivery of the last 29 trains. Since then they have TSI permission as well as network permission for Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and Austria. Since December of 2019, they have run on regular schedules through the Gotthard Basis Tunnel and they connect Basle/Zrich with Chiasso and Lugano. Continuing runs to Italy to Milan started on August 12, 2020, since September in multiple unit operation too. In the next step, runs between Basle and Frankfurt/Main are planned. Also being considered by the SBB is the use of these new powered rail car trains in the direction of Hamburg.

The basic set of the class RABe 501 "Giruno" high-speed rail car train can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 25810.
