Class 110 Electric Locomotive

The "Pants Crease" or rather prosaically the class E 10.3: There is hardly a German locomotive type which left its mark so vividly on the heyday of the German Federal Railroad starting in the Sixties as the elegant and streamlined units of the class E 10.3. Their impressive success story began in the Fifties when the new German Federal Railroad pressed ahead with electrification and ordered the E 10 in large numbers as a powerful and fast electric locomotive type. The first production runs (E 10.0 and E 10.1) still had a mundane, squared off locomotive body. In 1962, the first units appeared with aerodynamic ends. This striking design with the "crease" in the middle soon gave this variant rostered as the class E 10.3 the name "Pants Crease". For decades, the class E 10 units were workhorses in high-quality DB passenger service and the "Crease" was certainly one of the stars on German rails. Starting in 1990 the E 10 units wandered into regional service and performed their duties dependably there. The last "Pants Crease" units with millions of miles or kilometers under their belts did not go into retirement until 2013.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 110 electric locomotive. Locomotive body includes aerodynamic ends, the so-called pants crease, with continuous ventilation bands, continuous rain gutter, and end grab irons. Cobalt blue basic paint scheme. Road number 110 461-1. The locomotive looks as it did starting in 1978.
