I was board today so I wanted to match the pulling power of these three BTTB dieselloks to the train makeup that I have. The three locomotives are BR110, BR118 and a BR130. The three trains are made up of all BTTB two axel rolling stock.

Train A - 4 Güterwagen and 3 Containertragwagens. Prototypical weight unknown.

Train B - 10 Kesselwagens

per a previous post the hyperlink to the Kesselwagen Book and the diameter measurement that I made makes this a 40 cubic meter tank car. Per calculations that would be 10,566 gallons or 73,967 pounds, 33 long tons of crude oil.

Train C - 10 Offener Güterwagen with coal load; ES-U OMMU

Prototypical this car has a volumn of 36 cubic meters or 1271 cubic feet. The weight of bituminous coal is 84 pounds per cubic foot, the total being 106,827 pounds or 48 long tons. The unladden weight is 12.5 tons max.

Trying to match what I could fine on YouTube, the BR130 being the heavy hauller will pull the coal cars. The BR118 will pull the tank cars, I did see a video pulling the 2 axel coal cars. That leaves the BR110 with the boxcars.

What are your opinion

Prototypical how many cars will those locomotives pull using the loads that I've given.

All this will be going to my Godson in ? years he is 4 now. Also a DR 56 and 81 Dampflokomotive.

And I have been slacking off on my Duisburg Wedau Deutsche Bahn Gleisbau (DBG) Yard.
