Diesel locomotive BR 220 Brohltalbahn, Reuschling green.  Era VI

The V200 was THE locomotive face of the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) in the 1950s. No other diesel locomotive shaped the image of the young DB as much as the long locomotive with the characteristic aluminum decorative stripes that tapered into a stylized “V” on the front sides. In the series locomotives built from 1956 onwards, 1100 hp (at 1500 rpm) 12-cylinder engines from Daimler-Benz (MB 820 Bb), MAN (12 V 18/21) or Maybach (MD 650) were used. A steam boiler from Hagenuk, which was able to heat an express train with ten to twelve cars, was used to heat the train. A special feature was the equipping of all V200.0 with a multiple control, which made double traction and push-pull train operation possible. With Krauss-Maffei (V200 001 – 005, V200 026 – 086) and MaK (V200 006 to 025) only two manufacturers delivered the 86 locomotives to the DB. The front of the MaK locomotives differed significantly from the Krauss Maffei locomotives by the flatter version of the “V”. The Bahnbetriebswerke (Bw) Frankfurt-Griesheim (15 units), Hamburg-Altona (19), Hamm P (32) and Villingen / Black Forest (20) received initial allocations of series locomotives. Ex-works, V200 056 to 086 received simple DB logos on the sides instead of the eye-catching “Deutsche Bundesbahn” lettering. From the early 1970s, the aluminum trim strips were removed and the locomotives were given a decorative line to separate the red and gray sections. Three V200s were painted in the then modern shades of ocean blue and ivory in the 1970s. The distinctive »V« on the front sides was omitted. After the DB had parked the 220 as early as 1978, it offered the locomotives, some of which were just 20 years old, to foreign railways for sale. A total of 30 locomotives found customers in Italy, France (Algeria) and Spain.
