  • Prototype information

    The Specialist for Steep Grades - Originally, the 10 units of the class 85 three-cylinder, heavy tank locomotive placed into service were built for the Höllentalbahn (Hell"s Valley Railroad) in the Black Forest. This line was initially run with expensive and time-consuming rack railroad technology. The massive class 85 locomotives were able to negotiate this difficult line with the more economical adhesion operation. They gave excellent results there up to the conversion to electric motive power. Afterwards a number of these athletic units took up service on other steeply graded routes in Germany such as Erkrath-Hochdahl.
