Diesel railcars of series 628 of Deutschen Bundesbahn and Deutschen Bahn AG in all existing liveries. Included are the prototype series 628.0 as well as the series 628.2 and 628.4.
As replacement for the older rail cars and accumulator railcars class 515 the Deutsche Bundesbahn was looking for new types in the early 1970’s. They had to be as cost efficient as possible and flexible in usage, e.g. also on main lines. The first prototypes consist of two motorized rail cars, but there power was not very high, else they have been successful. The cars of the series later have been equipped with more powerful engines.
