The Taurus-3 locomotive E 91 (1216 940) delivered in 2008 to the Salzburger Lokalbahn (SLB) became the main locomotive for the so-called “Kaindl Shuttle”, a container train from the Liefering terminal to Hüttau and back. During the restructuring of the goods transport at Salzburg AG, the locomotive was sold in June 2021 to DPB Rail Infra Service GmbH.
DPB Rail Infra Service is an independent railway transport company and long-standing partner of the ÖBB in the fields of control command and signalling for railway infrastructures. The multi-system electric locomotive is an outstanding supplement to the goods transport sector of the company.

Usually, the locomotives of the freight division of the Deutsche Bahn are painted red. As part of the “I am” class of the DB Cargo, they have recently become much more colourful. In July 2020, another Vectron multi-system locomotive of class 193 was provided with self-promotion surfaces. Since then, it has been running on European rails and turned heads with their design “I am the backbone of the economy”. The Corona crisis also made it clear: Rail freight transport is, in fact, the backbone of the economy.

(N SCALE) Fleischmann 722096  class 106, DR DCC

Diesel locomotive class 106 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn.

■ Model with a tightly soldered decoder built-in from factory
■ Delicately designed model with extra applied plug-in parts
■ Die-cast metal chassis

From 1960 to 1982, the DR purchased class V 60 shunting locomotives. Despite a positive response from the staff and workshop, the DR had some improvements made after the first serial delivery. The friction mass was increased to 60 t by installing a 5-ton counterweight. The driver’s cab underwent the most noticeable changes from the outside. It was now the same width as the frame and had a sun protection roof. The locomotives with the improved design were then delivered from 1964 as V 60.12; after the number system was changed at the DR: as class 106.
