Modern Diesel for Many Uses -
In 1958, the German Federal Railroad (DB) began to place the class V 100 diesel hydraulic general-purpose locomotives into service. These units were very progressive designs for their time and had a power output of 1,100 horsepower. A more powerful version with 1,350 horsepower followed as the V 100.20 starting in 1962. These 12.3 meter / 40 feet 4-1/4 inches long locomotives reached a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 63 mph. Since the conversion to computer numbering in 1968, the first production series, the V 100.10, is now designated as the class 211, and the second series is designated as the class 212. These very versatile locomotives can be used in passenger as well as in freight service, and they quickly replaced many steam locomotives in the DB's motive power roster.
