E 19 12 Museum Locomotive "The fast E 19 pulling FD express trains in five hours and 50 minutes from Munich to Berlin", read the euphoric announcement from the president of the Erfurt Region, Offenberg District, at that time for the opening of electric operation between Nürnberg and Saalfeld on May 13, 1939. The DRG had planned continuous electric operation between Munich and Berlin, the line Nürnberg – Halle being run at 150 km/h / 94 mph and between Halle and Berlin, the plan even being to reach a continuous speed of 180 km/h / 113 mph. The DRG had two each test locomotives developed starting in 1937 by AEG (E 19 01 and 02) and by Henschel/SSW (E 19 11 and 12) for express train service on this main line. Both firms went back to the concept of the successful E 18, but all four E 19 units were equipped with considerably more powerful motors, sturdier drive gear elements, as well as pilot wheels of larger diameter. The electrical part of both designs differed considerably. The AEG units had four newly developed AC series-wound motors and the SSW locomotives had four eight-pole double motors. In addition, the E 19 units had electric resistance brakes for running in test operation at speeds of up to 225 km/h / 141 mph. The four E 19 units were delivered between January 1939 and July 1940 with an exclusive, wine-red paint scheme.

The outbreak of World War II however prevented extensive testing. After the end of the war, all four units remained in the western zones and were downgraded by the DB by the beginning of the Fifties to 140 km/h / 88 mph. Still, road number E 19 12 carried out extensive test runs after the electrification of the line Nürnberg – Regensburg, and on May 15, 1950 even pulled the opening train decorated and with honored guests to Regensburg. With one exception, the E 19 units (starting in 1968: 119) spent their lives stationed at Nürnberg Main Station. Between 1968 and spring of 1970 these "Race Horses" had to shift their service to Hagen-Eckesey. From there, they went back to Nürnberg in 1970 in very poor condition where the staff was familiar with them and achieved better performance again thanks to good maintenance. Road number 119 011 was the first to be retired in 1975 due to transformer damage. The other three units also followed between 1977 and 1978. Two of the "Race Horses" were preserved for the future: Road number E 19 12 stands as a DB museum locomotive in the original wine red paint scheme in the Nürnberg Transportation Museum and the AEG museum locomotive, road number E 19 01 also in the original paint scheme is on loan to the German Technology Museum in Berlin.

The locomotive comes in a wooden case.

Highlights:

  • Locomotive constructed mostly of metal.

  • Many separately applied details.

  • World of Operation mfx+ digital decoder and a variety of operation and sound functions included.

Product Info: 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.

The Union Pacific "Challenger" The "Challenger" type steam locomotives celebrated their hour of birth on the Union Pacific Railroad (UP). In the Mid-Thirties, UP chief engineer Arthur H. Fetter and Otto Jabelmann (UP superintendent for locomotives) realized that the existing steam locomotives could not haul heavier trainloads at higher speeds. Freight service was to be accelerated chiefly on the 0.82% grades in Wyoming. The two UP engineers developed an articulated locomotive with a 4-6-6-4 wheel arrangement in cooperation with American Locomotive Company (ALCO). In fact, it followed the Mallet design but did not work with the compound principle. The Challenger worked with simple expansion on each set of driving wheels. The first prototype with road number 3900 went into operation on August 25, 1936 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This locomotive had the newest steam locomotive technology of that time, including roller bearings on all of the pilot and trailing truck wheels and on the tender wheels, a generously dimensioned boiler, as well as a combustion chamber adapted accordingly to the locomotive. With a maximum speed of 70 mph (112.65 km/h) it had the following main data: boiler pressure 17.93 atmospheres / 263.50 pounds per square inch; four cylinders (558.8 x 812.8 mm / 22" x 32"); driving wheel diameter 1,752.6 mm / 69" (Boxpok wheels); grate surface 10.05 square meters / 108.18 square feet; heating surface 499 square meters / 5,371.19 square feet; super heater 151.1 square meters / 1,626.43 square feet; locomotive weight 256.5 metric tons; adhesion weight 175 metric tons; semi-Vanderbilt tender with two three-axle trucks.

Its first proving test was on the point of a heavy freight train from Ogden (Utah) to Green River (Wyoming) while mastering the grades of the Wasatch Mountains. In order to test the performance of this unit, the UP officials decided to have the locomotive run without additional locomotive support. Road number 3900 did this run with flying colors and Fetter thus declared that the new design had "met the challenge". The name "Challenger" stuck for the locomotive.

By 1937 the UP placed 40 units in three production groups into service with the numbers 3900-3939 (from 1944 on: 3800-3839), in which road numbers 3934-3939 were converted to oil firing right after being delivered and others followed in the next few years. From 1942-1944 the UP added 65 "Challengers" (3930-3949, 3950-3969, and 3975-3999) to its roster. With many improvements taken from the "Big Boys" (such as more powerful boiler, roller bearings on all wheel sets, a larger cab) they were now designated as "heavy" Challengers compared to the "light" Challengers from the years 1936/37. In 1945, road numbers 3975-3984 were converted to oil firing, in 1952 road numbers 3930/31/32/34/37/38/43/44 followed. In the same year, they were given new road numbers 3700–3707, while road numbers 3975–3984 became 3708–3717.

In the beginning the Challengers pulled chiefly freight trains over the grades on the Wasatch Mountains and Sherman Hill, but after the still more powerful Big Boys were placed into service, they were seen on the entire UP system in California, Nebraska, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming. In addition, they were also used for a time to pull passenger trains such as the "Challenger Streamliners" of the same name between Chicago and California. With faster conversion to diesel power after World War II, the last "Challengers" were taken out of service in 1959. Just two remained preserved: road number 3977 as a memorial in North Platte (Nebraska) and road number 3985, also converted to oil firing as a UP museum locomotive.
