## About This Content
In the 1960s, early German electric traction was starting to take a proper
shape, developments were being made, and for the Deutsche Bundesbahn, a mixed-
traffic design was due for production.
The new locomotive would be able to take advantage of the expanding
electrified network, bringing newfound power and speed to passenger and
freight services throughout Germany and even into neighbouring countries.
Initially a small batch of pre-series locomotives, classified as the BR 181,
were built in 1966 and put to the test; engineers analysed them and their
unique dynamic braking abilities. 4 of these locomotives were built, two were
known as the BR 181.0 and the others were the BR 181.1s.
As time rolled on, DB expressed their need for a fleet of locomotives which
could haul cross-border traffic, and more and more wires were being erected on
routes across Germany and France. The BR 181 had its chance, it was originally
developed as a dual-power locomotive, to work on different electrification
systems, and was selected as the basis for a series of 25 locomotives. Some
changes were made however, and so the new fleet, which was built between 1974
and 1975, was dubbed the BR 181.2.
Weighing in at 84 tons a piece, the BR 181.2 fleet was capable of 160 km/h
operation and were quickly put to work on express passenger services,
connecting Germany and France, and traversing the Mosel Valley. Freight work
through to Luxembourg was also hauled by them, and as time went on, they were
uses on EuroCity trains and even more international freight. For such a small
fleet of locomotives, the BR 181.2s sure did get around.
This notable example of classic German electric traction, which has done duty
for over 40 years is ready for you to command.
