1. SK800 (1950s), MSD3 decoder, 5 pole motor, lit cab, led's above wheels
1947 – 1959: Redesigns and the SK 800 N

Already by this time, and undoubtedly with the release of the 1947 catalog D 47, the completely redesigned SK 800 N was introduced. Everything from the wheel linkages which now featured red paint striping to the spoked tender wheels was changed. Some interesting in-between models exist as a cross between an SK 800 E and an SK 800 N, mostly with parts that could easily be interchanged like trailing trucks with spoked wheels and linkages with red painted stripes. Otherwise, the models were very different in design. The new SK 800 N also had either closed brush covers (from 1951 onward) which meant the brushes couldn’t be changed without removing the entire locomotive shell or a brush cover flap not dissimilar to the pre-war design. On the upside, however, the new design featured cleverly placed holes to allow oiling of internal gears and motor components which was very important to smooth operation of the locomotive. Other design changes up to the end of production in 1959 include a “MARKLIN” inscription on the front of the locomotive.

18. BR VT 11.5
The VT 11.5 was a diesel railcar train, purchased by Deutsche Bundesbahn for the European TEE high-speed rail network, which was introduced for the summer schedule 1957. This class was most commonly used as a 7-part set (2 locomotives, 5 carriages). Passengers appreciated this luxury train due to its spacious carriages and the high level of comfort. The air conditioning system in each carriage and other special features such as a train telephone or secretarial services raised this appre- ciation. Each of the locomotives had a diesel engine with an output of 810 kW. This enabled the train to achieve a maximum travelling speed of 140 km/h. However, another large advantage of the train was that it only made a few stops on its scheduled route between German and European cities, which con- siderably shortened the travelling time. The locomo- tives were renamed as class 601 when the comput- erised numerical system was introduced within DB
in 1968. The trains were used on scheduled InterCity routes until the end of the seventies.
