The ESU "Engineering Edition" Show what is possible with DCC especially when you can design the models from the ground up to accomodate all the operating features that modern DCC decoders support.

I have also included models from REE Modeles which have been designed usin

In 1965 four units of the pre-series class E03 were commissioned and the series production of a total of 145 locomotives commenced in 1970. The locomotives were already considered legends during their normal service life. The Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) developed the E03 mainly together with Henschel and Krauss-Maffei for hauling light TEE trains (Trans European Express) at high speeds in mainly level country. In 1965 high speed tests were commenced with the E03 001 in regular express train service with a maximum speed of 200 km/h. These runs and the unique shape made the E03 also to the flagship for rail travel. The rounded cab sections were developed as a result of elaborate tests in the wind tunnel and the elegant TEE livery coined the image of high speed rail travel in Germany for more than 30 years. In 1969 the DB modified the specification for the E03 and increased the total train mass to 480 t at 200 km/h and 800 t at 160 km/h for the serial production locomotives. Therefore the power rating of the traction motors was also increased, namely to 7,780 kW. The serial type class 103.1 could easily be differentiated from the pre-production models due to the second row of ventilation grills along the body sides and the somewhat simplified livery without the silver stripes between the crimson and the beige areas. During the early 1970-ies the class 103.1 had the opportunity to display its incredible acceleration hauling TEE trains with a maximum of 7 coaches and hardly ever reached the performance limit due to the small number of main line sectors with a permitted maximum speed of 200 km/h. Since all trains travelling at speeds higher than 140 km/h had to be manned by two engine drivers, the DB indulged their staff by lengthening the cabs and thus the overall length of the locomotive in the last production series. By the way, the rule regarding the requirements of two engine drivers in high speed trains was only abolished in 1996. For this reason there are two engine drivers in the ESU model. The introduction of the IC’79 express train system in 1979 made the class 103.1 to extremely heavy workers. The new InterCity consists were made up of first and second class coaches approved for a speed of 200 km/h. Although these high speed locomotives were now operating close to their performance limit, they were still very impressive due to their great reliability. In 1990 the German reunification and the foundation of the DB AG enlarged the operating radius of these racers even further. The class 103.1 locomotives have been indispensable for the DB AG well beyond the turn of the millennium.

At the beginning of the 2000s, the Austrian Federal Railways ÖBB ordered 90 Class 2070 shunting locomotives from the Kiel MaK mechanical engineering department.  The locomotive construction in Kiel was taken over by Vossloh and further developed. As a more powerful version of the G800, the G1000, equipped with an MTU eight-cylinder diesel engine, was launched on the same chassis. The 1100 kW (at 1860 rpm) and 100 km/h fast locomotive can be ordered for axle loads from 18 to 20 t and with country packages for right and left traffic. Between 2002 and 2016, Vossloh delivered 103 copies to railways in Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Deutsche Bahn was also interested in the four-axle and rented locomotives from various landlords for several years. The locomotives reliably provided freight services in almost all federal states. The locomotives are used in heavy shunting service, but also in front of local freight trains. Some G1000 belong to locomotive rental companies such as Northrail in Germany or Ferrotract in France and are employed within the respective national borders, for example, in all sectors of medium-heavy local freight transport, but also in the factory traffic of large industrial enterprises or in sea and inland ports. Various owners such as Spitzke Logistik (D) or Colas Rail (F) use the reliable four-axle axles in construction train traffic. Even after delivery of the Voith Gravita, DB occasionally uses borrowed G1000 in the event of vehicle bottlenecks.
