Brawa 41275 - Diesel Locomotive BR 199 DR, era 4, Sound
UPC or EAN: 4012278412755
The increasing proneness to faults of the newly built locomotives of the BR 99.72 and the completely wornout state of the Mallet locomotives of the BR 99.59 gave rise to the decision in the 1980s to convert the narrow gauge lines in the Harz region to diesel engines. To keep costs down, it was decided to equip standard gauge locomotives of the BR 110 with new bogies. In 1988 and 1989, the two prototypes 199 863 and 199 871 were delivered, which proved themselves very successfully in operation but were naturally unpopular with railway enthusiasts. Freight traffic, which was in decline after reunification and reduced business travel prevented the originally planned conversion of 30 engines. Only ten were completed, which were all added to the stock of the newly founded HSB in 1992.
