Announcement new mould 2018: Diesel Railcar BR VT60.5 gauge H0
Going back to a proposed development from the Westwaggon Company the industry launched the last large-scale range of the typically light railcars on to the tracks in 1939 and 1940. The basis for this was the German National Railway (DR) procurement programme from 1936 which, until this point, ensured the continuous further development of railcars. Typically for this era, the striking basket arch shape with the large buffers characterised the front of the vehicle and allowed the staff to move to the adjacent vehicle via a respective passage located on the front sides during the journey. In line with their BCPw4itrvT-36 design designation, they boasted a 2nd class (B) compartment with 6 cushioned seats and a 3rd class (C) compartment, equipped with 43 wooden seats. The vehicles were also equipped with a luggage compartment (Pw) which was located behind the front driver’s cab.
The GO56 h Maybach engine, that is definitely not as well-isolated as today in terms of noise and heat, also protruded into the driver’s cab from underneath and was equipped with an appropriate interior cladding. The power from the 225 HP engine was transferred to the second axle of the front bogie via the Voith transmission and allowed the VT to reach a top speed of 80 km/h. The beige and claret paint coat complete with black cover strips and bright roof clearly followed the paint specifications for vehicle coats of the time. The wartime events, which began in 1939, scuppered the original DR settlement plans. Although the first railcars arrived at Fulda railway depot as originally planned, the following deliveries were evenly distributed across the Hanover, Cologne and Saarbrücken directorates.
The BRAWA model of the VT60.5 is equipped with numerous details:
- Extra mounted and free-standing metal handrails and steps
