DRB Class 52 ‘Kriegslok’ Steam Engine


The Deutsche Reichsbahn Class 52 ‘Kriegslok’ (war locomotive) was a workhorse without equal in the era of German steam locomotives. In need of a strong, dependable freight locomotive to fuel their nation’s economic and military ambitions, the DRB penned an evolution of the proceeding 1’E (2-10-0) Class 50. The result was a locomotive both more powerful and radically simplified for wartime production. As a result, nearly 8,000 examples were constructed, ranking it the third most produced class of steam engine ever built.

Capable, rugged, and simple to maintain and operate, the Class 52 outlived their expected lifetimes by a considerable margin and were among the last steam locomotives retired worldwide, with the last units only being withdrawn from service in 1988.

This comes with a 2’2′ T30 Wannentender, K4T30 Steifrahmentender, and 40 different variants regarding front headlamp, numberplate, and smoke deflectors.
