Info about the original

The Höllentalbahn (from Freiburg central station via Neustadt/Schwarzwald to Donaueschingen) rightfully ranks among the most impressive stretches of railway in Germany thanks to its breathtaking route through the narrow Höllental (Hell Valley) with gradients of up to 57.14 per mille. Today, it is deservedly registered as a culturally significant monument in the Southern Upper Rhine region. In 1933, the line was electrified with a voltage of 20kV and a frequency of 50Hz. At the same time, the fleet was modernised with the BR 85 and E 244 locomotives as well as Ci-33 and BCi-34 light branch line carriages. It was not until May 1960 that the voltage was switched to the now standard 15kV at 16²/3 Hz. Consequently, the E 244 was promptly succeeded by the E44w from the Freiburg railway depot. These vehicles provided the electric traction on the Höllentalbahn and also pulled the typical passenger trains that were used on this line, consisting of various standard secondary line coaches.
