What I've got so far.

BR 18.4 / SPw4u-28 / (SAu-28 / SAuK-28 / SBuK-28 / SBu-28) / SPw4u-28

From mid 30's onwards it looks like the BR 18's were replaced with BR 01's.
Still stuggling to find out how many coaches there was per train or the make up of the SA's and SB's coaches....

QUOTE (allan @ 24 Dec 2007, 06:15) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>This was almost always a five car train, including the baggage car immediately behind the lok. For a short time only, a second baggage car was used at the back of the train. Two additional passenger cars could be added if there was sufficient demand - rarely.

Thats almost what I've assumed.

I'm supprised how short the trains formations are. I was expecting them to be closer in length to the LNER's Silver Jubilee or Cornation train sets...

We are talking about one extremely luxurious train, running through a country boasting astronomical inflation in the middle of the Great Depression (note the capitalisation...).

That said, DRG passenger trains, especially the really fast trains, always seemed to be generously powered. An 01 with four bogie cars, and not matching bogie cars at that, was not unusual.

Anyone know if the Rheingold ever strayed out of Germany ?

I would love an excuse to run my Trix set on St.Laurent ! Just a pity the working rear lights are on the baggage car - another little job to do.

According to wikipedia they ran routes to:-

Basel SBB - Freiburg - Baden-Baden - Karlsruhe - Mannheim - Mainz - Köln - Düsseldorf - Duisburg - Zevenaar - Hoek van Holland - by boat: Harwich

I'll be running one on my Remagen layout and St.Laurent isn't that far away...
