| The DB Class 218 is a class of 4 axle, diesel hydraulic locomotives acquired by the Deutsche Bundesbahn for use on main and secondary lines for both passenger and freight trains. This class was the most numerous of the V160 family, providing the backbone of the Deutsche Bundesbahn's main-line diesel locomotive traction from the 1970s up to the reunification of Germany. Despite being displaced from many workings by DMUs by electrification, and inherited DR Class 130s, as of 2009 a significant number of the class still remain active throughout Germany.|
