    Diesellok V 140 001 At the beginning of the 1930s, the hydraulic transmission of power for small locomotives and traction cars had proved successful. The now widely developed Voith-Föttinger liquid gearbox offered several advantages and large diesel engines had reached a satisfactory level of development. At the end of 1934 the German Reichsbahn decided to build a world-wide first hydraulically driven large diesel engine under the leadership of Krauss-Maffei. The whole thing, however, had a small catch because the locomotive was to be finished by the beginning of the exhibition "100 years of German railways" in mid-July 1935. Therefore, only eight months of construction were available. In spite of many problems, the first to be described as V 16 101, was to get Diesellok up and running in time, and even to transfer it to the Nuremberg exhibition with its own strength. Afterwards, various series of tests were on the program and they sometimes even missed the performance of steam locomotives such as the Prussian P8 in the course of a trial run. The final inspection by the DRG took place only in 1936. Afterwards the machine ran in the Munich area and became a little later in its design in V 140 001. After successful testing, she presented the German Reichsbahn in 1937 with pride at the Paris World Exposition. As an outstanding engineering certificate of her time, she was even allowed to decorate herself there with a "Grand Prix". The Second World War interrupted the further development of powerful diesel locomotives and also sent V 140 001 to the siding. But after the end of the war the great interest of the occupying powers in technical innovations in Germany caused a resurgence of the now war-damaged locomotive. Krauss-Maffei took over the reprocessing with small improvements and as early as the end of 1947 / early 1948 again took place measuring and test driving. Afterwards, the V 140 001 was now available to Bw Frankfurt-Griesheim for a scheduled deployment in a burgundy finish. By the time of its final departure in December 1952, it had returned some 130,000 km to Nuremberg, Heidelberg and Fulda in terms of speed, express and passenger services. A mature main investigation, its loner status, the ever more difficult supply of spare parts and the delivery of new diesel locomotives on October 13, 1953, led to the dismantling of the ancestor of all hydraulic diesel locomotives. However, as a pioneering construction and direction-oriented for the construction of large diesel locomotives, it did not migrate to the scrap, but has been preserved and can be admired since 2006 in the exterior of the Deutsches Museum München, the Rundlokschuppen of the "Lokwelt Freilassing".
