BMAG.jpg Ref. 4 BMAG Berliner Maschinen AG
A locomotive from 1940 aimed for cargo transports. It had a power of 2000 ps and a max speed of 80 km/h. Pressure in boiler 16 kp/cm. Length was 23 m. It was manufactured in 3164 units. After the war it was still 2159 units left in West. The locomotive was built after BR (baureihe) which was called 50. Look at the shield in front. This kind of vehicle rolled about 2 million km. After war most were rebuild to be heated with oil. Time for a little locomotive knowledge. They were identified after what was called baureihe (BR). The BR told the number of wheel-axles. For ex. this loco had the identification of 1'E h2. This means 1=1 pair of front wheels, E stands for 5 (5th letter) pair of driving wheels, no carrying wheels under driver compartment and h2=2 pair of boggies under the tender (coal wagon). Simple uhu!. But it will not be taken always for granted. Link.

Krupp.jpg Ref. 4 Krupp
Locomotive for cargo transports from 1939 which developed 2200 ps an a max speed of 90 km/h. Length 23 m. Produced in 366 ex. After the war 40 was rebuild with a new boiler, to be fired with oil instead of coal. The new ones were welded instead of riveted together. This loco was built after baureihe 41. The boiler gave a pressure of 16 kp/cm which for a long time was the standard for "Gterzug". The overpressure or two stage didn't come until middle of 50th. The first type of 41 was 1936 with a new design of boiler, which was very successful. This beast had the identification of 1'D1'h2. Now look at the preceding photo text and you find that there is a "1" after D. This shows that it has one pair of carrying wheels under the driver compartment. Firma Krupp was established 1811 and was continued by son 1826. 1852 Krupp got patent on seamless loco wheels which gave them advantage to other firms. During prewar period to WWII, Krupp, Henschel, Jung and other manufacturer of locomotives shared by % the market. 1997 Krupp delivered the last locomotive.

Jung Kriegslokomotiv
This locomotive is a BR 52. It is a fully rebuilt BR 42. The German authority decided 1940-41 to standardize a locomotive which was equipped only with the most necessary parts and standardized as far as possible. The result became this 1'E h2. It was in the first hand aimed for the eastern front where both long and heavy (tanks) cargo transports were needed. These locos was mainly build by Jung i Jungenthal a firm that was established already 1885. This firm was working till 1993 when the owner voluntarily  ended the production. One of the few that never went bankruptcy. The "Kriegslocomotive" was build in 6285 ex. and had 1620 ps, 80 km/h and 16 kp/cm. Camouflage painting may have done something good, but smoke from the chimney must have unveiled everything. Note the small driving wheels which unveil that it was a loco that had to pull heavy loads. To be a engineer during a winter on the eastern front, with -30 to -40 was not the best thing in the world. +50 against the breast and -40 at the back you don't survive long time. Many locos was left in the east zone and did much work until middle of 60th and later. The official name of this loco was "Gterzug lokomotiv 52". Totally till 1948 9710 units were build..

043100.jpg Ref. 1

A loco that belonged to BR 44 with wheel identification of 1'E h3. Now I am in a bad position but h3 means that tender had one double and one 3-double boogie. This BR was created 1926 and this locomotive was build 1939, with 2500 ps, 80 km/h and 16 kp/cm  and was built in 2000 ex. Henschel was a very large company in Germany till 1976, when other firm like Thyssen, BBC Mannheim started to overtake it and finally the name Henschel disappeared when the company was incorporated in Daimler Benz ABB Adtranz and Bombardier Transportation and a name of a successful company ended which already 1810 delivered locomotives. In the 20th till the end of war it was one of the biggest companies  for heavy and other industrial components. The working place was Kassel, which name also their construction of boiler got. They also built cars and lorries and was near allies to Hanomag. Before and during war they developed airplanes and also against end of war was far ahead with prototypes of jet airplanes. None of their planes came to series manufacturing, but they became sub deliverer. Most important was though the production of locomotives. For this the workshop was destroyed by bombing and 1945 manufacturing was not possible. Henschel started again 1948 and the figures of production started to raise. But now it was new times and steam locomotives was out. New knowledge, diesel engine, electromotor and turbines demanded cooperation with other companies and they were ahead technically and could in that way decide things. The cylinder steam power last year may be counted to 1955.

Maffei.jpg Ref. 4 J.A. Maffei Fast train
This locomotive manufacturer 1919 with baureihe 2'C1'h4v. Power 2700 ps 16 kp/cm and highest speed of 200 km/h. It was the fastest loco in Europe at that time. Driving wheels was 2.1 m diameter and the loco was on duty till 1933. J.A. Maffei was established 1866 in Mnchen and 1931 the stock company was founded. Maffei build production workshops in several places before 1940 when the name was changed to Kraus-Maffei. This continued till 1999 when they merged with Siemens and founded Siemens Kraus-Maffei Locomotive GmBH.

Mountain locomotive Austria 1922
Built 1922, BR E980, 1900 kw, max speed 70 km/h weight 110 tons. Construction is the same as the loco from Switzerland. All who are working with railway stuff know the problems about curves and the wheels. Depending on curve radii the middle wheel can be 10 to 20 cm offside. This demands good constructions on bearing and banisters. That is why most locos have 2 boogies which minimize these difficulties.
