About

In the 50s of the last century, Deutsche Bahn (DB) planned a single-engine, four axles diesellocomotive with two cabines to purchase. At the time, the V160 was de largest dieselengine family in various variants: the Baureihe 216. After further development, the the Class 218 was the result. 

The Class 218 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) is a series of four-axle diesellocomotives originated from the already known V 160 and Class 216 with a length of more then 16 metres. This Class is tested for many years. After this period, the serie was build between 1971 and 1979. In total, 398 engines were build. The machines were first fitted with MAN-motors with a power of 1.840 (2.500 HP) and a weight of 78 ton. Later series of the Class 218 were fitted with MAN 12 V 956 TB 11 motors or the well known Pielstick 16 PA 4V 200 motors. So the Class 218 can be split out in many different variants. This package contains the Class 218-4. 

For many years, the Class 218 is the most important representative of West German diesellocomotives for main lines. The engines were mostly based around the areas of Schleswig-Holstein, Braunschweig, Pfalz, Oberpfalz and Bayerisch Woods. Today, the Class can be find on non-electrical lines of the DB were the locomotives pulls fast passenger services, semi-fast passenger services and even freighttrains. Examples of routes were the Class 218 can be seen now is Munchen - Bregenz (Austria) and Hamburg - Lubeck.

The Class 218-400 has a maximum speed of 140 kilometer pro hour and a weight of 80 ton.
