Die Mehrsystem-Elloks der Deutchen Bundesbahn (EK)

Back Order

In the 1960s, Germany introduced locomotives capable of using different voltages to operate in France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, removing the need for locomotive changes at national borders.

This highly detailed book examines the history of multi-system electric locomotives in Germany, covering Classes 181, 182, 183 and 184, the last of which remain in regular use today.

Early chapters cover the technical development of these locomotives, including several technical diagrams and photographs of electrical equipment and parts. Further chapters then cover each locomotive type in turn, looking at the development of the class and at their use on Germany's railways since their introduction.

A timeline is included for each class, providing details of typical duties carried out by locomotives in the class in each year. This book is superbly illustrated with 500 colour or black & white photographs, diagrams and charts. German text. Hardback. 288 pages.
