This photo of the futuristic-looking Henschel-BBC DE2500 ‘UmAn’ experimental diesel locomotive is the last photo of the railway exhibits in Berlin’s Museum of Technology – then we move on to other parts of the museum!

This striped blue marvel is a prototype diesel locomotive from the early 1970s that was modernized into the UmAn 202 303-0 about a decade later. This particular Henschel-BBC DE2500 has been in Berlin’s Museum of Technology since the 1980s and I remember seeing it as something futuristic back then!

The East German DR 118, formerly V180, has only been in Berlin’s Museum of Technology since the early 1990s, so I never saw it when I was in the Museum as a child in the 80s.

The DR 118, formerly V180, was the East German counterpart to the DB V200 and came a few years later in the early 1960s. It was the biggest and most powerful diesel engine constructed in East Germany before other locomotives were imported from the Sowjet Union.
