Steam locomotive class 65, DB




Steam locomotive class 65 of the German Federal Railway.

■ Movable Heusinger control
■ Metal die-cast chassis

The class 65 was a part of the new construction programme by the German Federal Railway and was first delivered in 1951. The characteristic design of this engine gives it a powerful and elegant appearance. It was most commonly operated as a passenger train tender locomotive in suburban and light rail traffic in the Ruhr area as well as on the Odenwaldbahn and the Überwaldbahn. Some of these locomotives were later equipped for push-pull service. The 18 locomotives were able to achieve a top speed of 85 km/h with a power output of 1,089 kW. The last locomotive was rolled into the sidings in 1972.
