    Model & Prototype Information

    The German Class 151 heavy electric freight locomotives were built for German Federal Railway between 1972 and 1978. They were built as a replacement for the ageing Class 150's, in order to cope with the increased requirements of this type of locomotive, in particular the desire of a 120 km/h (75 mph) top speed.  On the 21st of November 1972 the first locomotive, 151001, was delivered by AEG and Krupp. It was followed by 11 further pilot locomotives, which were extensively tested before the main order was built. Altogether 170 locomotives were ordered, which were based at first in Hagen and Nuremberg. Originally the Class 151 was also suitable for passenger service, however at present it is not possible because they are not fitted with safety equipment. Some engines were fitted with automatic coupling (type unicupler A69e) to haul heavy ore-trains.

    Technical Data:

    * Top Speed 120 km/h

    * Power Output 8,432 hp

    * Locomotive Weight 118 t

    * Lenght 1949 cm (63 feet)
