SVT 137225 DR "Hamburg Design". A revolution in the rapid transit of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRG) initiated the VT 877a / b. As the "Flying Hamburger" put the 160-km / h DMUs first time on May 15, 1933 as planned, the 287 km long route Berlin - Hamburg back and needed for only two hours and 18 minutes. This corresponded to a cruising speed 124.8 km / h. Based on the experience with this railcar ordered the DRG 13 similar two-car train as type "Hamburg" (SVT 137149-152 u. 224-232). A slightly different head shape as well as the installation of a Scharfenberg coupler formed the most striking differences for "Ur-Hamburger". The car bodies for all vehicles emerged as an aerodynamic lightweight steel construction formers and. In the two bogies 302 kW Maybach diesel engines rested and the chief generators. The drive was carried out by DC traction motors suspended in the central Jakobs truck. From 1935, these DMUs learn to fly and the DRG revolutionized with a unique network faster railcars courses timetabling. Unfortunately only for a short-lasting era of the famous "Flying Trains" had begun. From Berlin and Cologne, Frankfurt / Main, Basel, Stuttgart, Munich, Breslau, and even Bytom were achieved next to Hamburg now. With the outbreak of war ended in the fast railcars traffic. After the war, the shapely speed rail cars were scattered to the winds. Two "Hamburger" were after 1945 in the field in the GDR. The SVT 137 226 was no longer in operation and the SVT 137 225 built the DR until February 1951/52 in a Salontriebzug order. So he stood up in October 1981 the important personalities of the GDR Ministry of Transport available. Declared as a museum vehicle then began his second career, in which he was allowed to participate in the summer of 1985, even with the official "exit permit" of the GDR's anniversary exhibition "150 Years of Railway in Germany" in Nuremberg. After the turn of the SVT 137 225 was again a major investigation and was externally restored to its original state with the elegant beige-violet original paint. He is no longer operable to marvel at the museum railway in Leipzig Central Station.
