Old & New E-Loks

Time to start uploading the German registered locomotives.  This is one of those uploads that kept getting put back and back and it’s probably been a year since I did a proper locomotive upload.   Starting with what is now known as the DB Class 115.  The history of these locomotives is somewhat convoluted but they stemmed from the original E10 series of locomotive from the 1950s.  DB have created the class 115 locomotive and allocated them to the subsidiary of DB Autozug.

Another old class of locomotive is the class 139 & class 140 locomotives, both of these started off as the E 40 series.  These were the freight versions of the E10 from the 1950s.

Class 139 285-1 heads an inter-modal service north through a damp and murky Hamburg Harburg on the 11th of April 2013.

Moving away from the standard DB red we move onto a sponsored livery on a class 140, this is also available as HO scale model made by Roco (item number 72562) which I would like but it’s a lumpy special edition price.

Sunrail liveried Class 140 002-7 heads East round the curve at Lehrte at the head of a rake of empty car carriers on the 9th of October 2013.

Now onto some more modern locomotives.

The last picture is not one of quality (taken from a moving ICE) but it does show something different.
