List Of DRG Locomotives And Railcars
The railway vehicle classes covered by this list of DRG locomotives and railbuses belonged to the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft or DRG (1924–37) and its successor, the Deutsche Reichsbahn or DRB (post 1937).
The DRG (lit. German Imperial Railway Company) was formed under the terms of the Dawes Plan from the Deutsche Reichseisenbahnen (lit. Imperial Railways), a merger of the various German state railways after the First World War. The tables are generally organized in accordance with the DRG's numbering schemes for the various types of vehicles. A brief explanation of this may be found in the articles on the numbering scheme of the German railways and German steam locomotive classification.
After the end of the Second World War the West German part of the DRB became the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB), but its East German counterpart continued to be called the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) – see Deutsche Reichsbahn (East Germany). The DB and the DR later introduced newly built classes into the numbering plans and also reclassified some vehicles following rebuilding. They are not covered here.
