The DRG Class SVT 137 was a class of streamlined diesel train sets of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft and later of the Deutsche Bundesbahn (as class VT 04) and the Deutsche Reichsbahn. With a maximum speed of 160 km/h and average speeds of up to 132 km/h they were the first high speed trains in central Europe. Since the success of the SVT #877 "Flying Hamburger" DRG projected a set of Diesel multiple units for a high speed network from Berlin to several German cities. The first were built in 1934/1935,but they showed some differences to the prototype. The number of seats was 77 instead of 99, the placement of the seats 2+1 instead of 3+1, and the they were 2,3 m longer. On February 17, 1936, the "Bauart Leipzig" achieved a world speed record of 205 km/h.
