The Baureihe 101, designed by ADtranz, has a weight of 83 tons and achieves a maximum speed of 220 km/h. It is one of the newest locomotives in service with the Deutsche Bahn AG and is intended for both passenger and freight transport. Furthermore, in these locomotives only environmentally friendly refrigerants and paint types were used, and the energy generated by braking is fed back into the power-grid.

Development and usage
In July 1995, the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) ordered the construction of a new locomotive for intercity traffic. These locomotives were to succeed Series’ BR 103, BR 112 and BR 120. Eventually, this resulted in an order for 145 locomotives of the Series BR 101, which could achieve a top speed of 220 km/h. The series BR 101 was built by the manufacturer ADtranz. The first locomotive was delivered in July 1996 and put into operation.

Advertising locomotive
As of May 1998, the BR101 was also used as an advertising locomotive to create extra income. The advertisement on the locomotives was applied to the locomotives by means of printed advertising foil. Until mid 2006, some 200 locomotives of the Baureihe 101 with advertising foil were in use.
