DB BR 155

As freight demands and the spread of electrification grew throughout the mid-1960s, it became apparent that Deutsche Reichsbahn’s current fleet of freight locomotives were no longer up to the task alone; not only that, but motive power which pre-dated the Second World War was in dire need of replacement. This meant a new electric locomotive was needed.
DR were after a six-axle locomotive that could easily haul any form of rolling stock, be that freight or passenger, and other features such as a light steel body and ergonomic driver’s cab were also part of the plans. The new Co’Co’ locomotives were given the title of “E51” and construction of the first prototypes began in the early 1970s. By the time of their completion in 1974, the prototypes had been designated as the DR BR 250.
Following the reunification of Germany in 1994, the DR BR 250s were renumbered under Deutsche Bahn’s reclassification system and become known as the DB BR 155s. Following this, the BR 155s could be seen all over the German rail network, hauling a wide variety of freight services, including fast container trains on the high-speed lines.
The “Electric Container”, as it’s affectionately known to railfans, has stood the test of time and you can take to the rails hauling heavy freight with a nostalgic twist, as the iconic DB BR 155 is now available for Train Sim World® 2 for enticing Ruhr-Sieg Nord action!
