Electric locomotive class 151 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn.
■ Wheels with low wheel flanges
■ Model with former orient-red DB logo
For the heavy goods train service, the DB put in 1973 over 100 of these locomotives into operation. When the designers developed the BR 151, they used the already proven designs from the BR 110, BR 140, BR 150 and BR 103. Three removeable hoods between the driver's cabs facilitate the installation and removal of larger equipment. With a top speed of 120 km / h and a power output of 5982 kW, the BR 151 is one of the strongest freight locomotives of the DB. The original model was also regularly used in Austria.
