West German class ET56 (456)

One of the seven Bo-2+2-2+2-Bo type three-car electric railcar sets from 1952 seen at Osterburken in 1984. These were 80 metres long over buffers and had a service weight of 116 tonnes. Power output was 1020 kW (1378 hp) at the one hour rating, top speed was 90 km/h (after 1970 increased to 110 km/h) and sitting places totaled 262. All were withdrawn by 1986 and none were preserved.
