Great Hechte / Pike in the Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train. The Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train concept introduced in 1902 in Bavaria designated as a rule a fast train run over medium distances with few, short stops at the most important stations. Over the years it was customary to use older express train passenger cars in Eilzug trains, hence the use of the Hechtwagen / Pike Cars in the Fifties and Sixties that were formerly used in high quality express train service. The Der Eilzug train was particularly interesting for commuters, who streamed daily in and out of the large metropolitan areas. Many Eilzug runs were therefore done in the large metropolitan areas themselves on short routes and also in the surrounding areas on less frequented branch lines routes; the latter were popularly known as Heckeneilzuge / Hedge Fast Passenger Trains and had for all intents and purposes a long-distance service function. The modernization of the German railroad had no more use for the name Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train. The City Bahn / City Railroad, the Interregio or even more the Regional Express epitomizes best the task of the Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train of the past.
The German Federal Railroad class 39 is the right motive power for the E 554 Eilzug / Fast Passenger Train and can be found as an Insider model for 2009 in the Marklin H0 assortment under item no. 39390.
