INFORMATION ABOUT THE MODEL


On their way to Switzerland and on to Italy, numerous luxury travelers’ from Great Britain and the Netherlands used CIWL sleeping cars through France. The DRG was very interested in "redirecting" this wealthy clientele to their routes. Therefore, in 1928, she introduced a luxury day train called the "Rheingold-Express" between Hoek van Holland / Amsterdam and Basel SBB. From 1929, the train route was extended to Lucerne and Zurich in the summer. How great the competitive pressure was can be seen from the fact that the CIWL reacted to the DRG offensive in 1928 with its own day train via Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg, the "Edelweiss".


When designing the train, the DRG was based on similar day trains operated by the CIWL. Inside there were open-plan rooms and partially semi-compartments, in the first class even with loose armchairs. Each car had a different decor made of different precious woods or fabric-covered walls and ceilings. Externally, the train wore a dark purple and ivory special paint finish.


This resulted in 26 cars in four different variants (each 1st and 2nd class with and without a kitchen), as well as three baggage cars. A train usually consisted of five carriages – one carriage each with and without a galley first and second class (one galley supplied two carriages) and a baggage car. Since the baggage car had to run behind the locomotive as a protection car at the time, the need for another baggage car arose because of the headbanging in Mannheim. For this purpose, the DRG repainted two Prussian and two Baden wagons according to the Rheingold scheme. In the Netherlands, traction was provided by the 3700 and 3900 series. For many years, the class 184-5 of the Mainz depot drove on the German part up to Mannheim. From 1936 the new Deutzerfelder 01 took over the covering of the Rheingold Express. On the southern section, Offenburger 183 hauls the train, which was already replaced by the BR 01 in 1930. From Basel, Ae 4/7 takes the train to central Switzerland in summer. With the beginning of the war in 1939, the luxury train was discontinued without replacement.
