    The DB in the Eighties: The Allgäu-Zollern-Railroad
    The Seventies and Eighties are a colorful era: on the German Federal Railroad and of course on the Minitrix model railroad. At that time new colors and unusual designs were intended to give fresh air to the rails - and not only for long-distance service. In the South of Germany, the "Allgäu-Zoller Railroad" was writing railroad and transportation history which can be brought to life again with new Minitrix models on your home layout or in a display case. Around 1976 the DB wanted to abandon the Württemberg Allgäu Line Aulendorf - Kisslegg and also the Zoller Line Tübingen - Sigmaringen (- Aulendorf) was on trial. The two regions quickly recognized the value of their railroad and in cooperation with the DB came up with a concept to make these routes more attractive. In the absence of new locomotives and cars the plan was to use proven but already relatively old "rebuild passenger cars (type yg) with green stripes, "Allgäu-Zollern-Bahn" ("Allgäu-Zoller Line") in large lettering, and with the coats-of-arms for communities and towns on the two lines. These trains had mostly class 215 diesel locomotives as motive power. Although there was no great increase in comfort, the connection entered the consciousness of the population, and the abandonment was averted.

    Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) road diesel locomotive, road number 215 064-7, as it looked around 1985. Diesel hydraulic locomotive with steam heating generator.
