Class E 94 Electric Locomotive

55223 – DB Class E 94 Electric Locomotive In the first decades of the DB, the class E 94 "Crocodiles" formed the backbone of heavy freight service. Initially, these units could be found all over the entire (electrified) South German area. With increasing expansion of electrical operations, their use expanded to Frankfurt/Main. Starting in 1960, the Crocodiles reached out to the Saarland area and to the south, they went down to Basle. Naturally, part of their daily work was pusher service on the steep grades in the Frankenwald region, the Spessart region, and the Geislingen Grade. Additional electrification in Northern and Western Germany in the Sixties brought an expansion of train service to new regions, yet the E 94 units always remained true to their South German maintenance facilities.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class E 94. Heavy freight locomotive with roof extensions, 3 DB style lanterns, and visible cooling pipes. Chrome oxide green basic paint scheme. Road number E 94 062, based at Regensberg.
