  • Prototype information

    Long before the TEE and ICE, the "Rheingold" was considered as the symbol of a modern, luxurious, long distance passenger train. According to advertising for the German State Railroad, it linked the North Sea and the Alps together. The European Schedule and Car Provision Conference of October 1927 in Prague was probably the birth date of the "Rheingold". There the decision was made to set up an express train connection from Amsterdam/Hook of Holland to Basle. The first scheduled run for this train then took place on May 15, 1928. This Z train reproduces an authentic train composition from this time. According to the regulations in effect at that time, no passenger car could be coupled directly behind the locomotive, and a baggage car was therefore placed in the train between it and the other cars. A baggage car was placed at both ends of the train to avoid time-consuming switching maneuvers at the end stations. Only the locomotive had to be placed at the front of the train in each case.
