City-Bahn. Branch lines have always been problem children for the German railroad. In 1984, the German Federal Railroad took a new approach to increase the attractiveness of service on little used routes. The project went under the name City-Bahn and initially one route for selected for this service: Cologne Gummersbach. Silberlinge / Silver Coins commuter cars were used as rolling stock and were rebuilt to the latest standard at that time. A train café was set up in one of the cars and the exterior of these trains was borrowed from the paint scheme for the S-Bahn in the Rhine/Ruhr area. The paint scheme for the locomotives was adapted to that of the trains in order to achieve a high level of recognition for the City-Bahn product. Class 218 diesels were used on the route Cologne Gummersbach. The railroad was able to register a clear increase in passengers thanks to the City-Bahn, and this increase was the result of the dense service at regular intervals. Without a doubt the City-Bahn concept kept rail service alive on routes threatened with abandonment until it was replaced by its successor, the Stadt-Express or City Express.

The class 218 City-Bahn locomotive and a City-Bahn car to go with this car set can be found in the Marklin H0 assortment under item nos. 39182 and 43818. This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 23434.
