Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Deutsche Reichsbahn Class 250 is a German electric locomotive used on freight trains. Nicknamed the "Electric Container" or "Powercontainer" due to its distinctive carbody shape. The less favorable nickname "Stasi-Container" is also heard every now and then. It was the most powerful locomotive in the former GDR. In the mid-1960s, it became apparent that engine classes 211 and 242, in production since 1961, were not powerful enough, so DR built a new, 6-axled, electric locomotive suitable for all classes of traffic.show more
