History: Epoch III is characterised by the rebuilding of the railways after the second world war. Many pre-war steam engines and coaches, construction of the last new built steam engines, new generations of diesel locomotives and new innovative electric locomotives. The first mainlines which were electrified, the construction of a whole new generation of express train coaches which we now still see in Germany.

In epoch III the returning of a couple of famous trains took place. Like the Rheingold, first with pre-war coaches but from 1962 again exclusive with special built express train coaches. Also in the new developed F-train network, where the DB offered good connections mainly for business travellers between the major German cities, a couple of important trains returned like the Hanseat, Rheinblitz and the Blauer Enzian with the old Henschel Wegmann Zug. And of course in 1957 the famous TEE network started.
