Electric Locomotive E95 DRG.
In the mid-nineteen twenties, the Deutsche Reichsbahn required a fast and powerful electric locomotive for transporting coal to Berlin. It was planned to use this locomotive for freight trains with loads of up to 2,200 tonnes and to pull passenger trains at a speed of 65 km/h. After various conventional designs with side rod drive had been produced, the railway company decided to build the new locomotive with a single axle drive. The necessary tractive power meant that the locomotive needed at least six driven axles, and in order to attain the planned speeds at the state of the art, additional guiding axles were necessary. The first of a total of six locomotives were delivered by AEG in late 1927. The rest had been delivered by mid-1928. The locomotives consisted of double locomotive units, each half being practically identical. The locomotives delivered 2,418 kW of power. Their length of 20.9 m and service mass of 138.5 tonnes make them the largest and heaviest German electric locomotives ever built.
