HSB Rollwagen

These pages are just internal notes and are incomplete, and the info is not always verified. I am definitely not an expert on the subject.


Prototype

  • 1984 – Selketalbahn now allows Rollwagen to travel on the network, until this point the minimum clearance outline did not allow it
  • With the reopening of the Strassberg – Stiege route, the Stiege – Alexisbad route was adapted for use of Rollböcke / Rollwagen.
  • Rollwagen were about 9 Tonnes each, limiting the actual transportable weight.
  • 1993 – HSB – Rollwagen still in use.
  • 1998 – With the arrival of newer type “Vevey” (later Bombardier) Rollböcke, the use of Rollwagen was ended. Most were sold or disassembled.
  • Today – HSB – Rollwagen are still in use as an internal maintenance train, consisting of 4 Rollwagen with type Fcs ballast cars on top which are used for ballasting the HSB tracks.
  • General:
    • Ein Regelspurfahrzeug auf Rollwagen wird als “aufgeschemelt” bezeichnet.

LSTB Notes (based on info/pictures only): Machine made, prototypical, rather accurately scaled, moderate detail

LGB

LGB has/had Rollwagen available in HSB/DR livery, but they are of a Saxon style (shorter than Harz style, different design elements), and thus I would not include them here.
