At Home on All Lines
The German State Railroad (DRG) had a great success with the E 44. This locomotive had power trucks but no pilot wheels and quickly developed into an "All Purpose Weapon" that turned in the best results in light and medium duty service. This did not change on DB up to the start of the Sixties. This model of road number E 44 046 from the Breslau District is presented in the prime of its years, as it looked in the "Bottle Green" basic paint scheme around 1936.
Prototype: German State Railroad (DRG) class E 44 passenger locomotive. The locomotive looks as it did around 1936 in blue gray. Road number E 44 046, Rbd. Breslau, assigned to Breslau.
