Liliput L136133 H0 Tower motor coach 730 of DB DB DC-version

The progressive electrification of the main lines, as well as the branch lines of Germany, required maintenance vehicles to ensure an always optimum condition of the overhead line. In order to be able to take out the old vehicles from the beginning, new buildings were therefore procured by the Deutsche Reichsbahn from the end of the 20er. Among other things, a very special tower wagon was created, the drive of which was supplied by accumulators (located in the front buildings). These, in turn, could be charged directly from the overhead line via the pantograph – completely independant of stationary charging systems – by integrating a rectifier into the vehicle.The battery tower railcars were equipped with a crew room and a complete workshop. They were mostly on their own, but could also carry material wagons if required due to the attached control clutch and buffer. While the vehicles themselves are from J.A. Maffei, came the electrical equipment of SSW (Siemens Schuckert plants) and the batteries of AFA (Akkus-Fabrik AG).The models of our models were built between 1929 and 1933, and a total of six vehicles were built, some of which differed in small details. They were stationed in Munich, Wroclaw and Augsburg. From the epoch III partly modifications were made, e.g. additional sockets were fitted on the front, an open tool box was mounted on one side of the chassis or the lamps were replaced. Thus, at the end of their service in the early 70er, some of the vehicles looked quite different in some details. Unfortunately, none of the interesting vehicles have been preserved museum.Like your prototype, THE LILIPUT models are equipped with a rotating work platform and folding stage railings, so that both the work situation on the overhead line and the driving mode or the setting-up, e.g. in the driving line master's shop or the BW can be reproduced as per the model.This text is machine translated.
