The new class designation 249 was also therefore chosen, because numerous changes had resulted compared to the units already delivered. The 249 was thus equipped with a forward mounted brakeman's platform and switching couplers that could be folded up. This means the locomotive is a bit longer and now measures 20,500 millimeters / 67 feet 3 inches over the buffers compared to the class 248 with 19,980 millimeters / 65 feet 6 inches. The output on the diesel motor has been reduced to 1,120 kilowatts / 1,502 horsepower, while the electrical output was increased slightly and is now 2,200 kilowatts / 2,949 horsepower. The diesel tank is now smaller, which has led to a reduction in the axle load to 21 metric tons, thus allowing this locomotive to be used on branch lines.

So I somehow miss this a few years back. I recently bought it for my basement empire, that why one of the links is for a model. However I posted the real Siemens link as a see what there doing in Europe. Just bit surprised that we’re spending so much oxygen try to reinvent the wheel here in the US.
