A complete success: with the help of model locomotives, a short-term fundraising campaign for the Deutsche Bahn Foundation's Ukraine relief efforts has raised 58,600 euros. The well-known model building specialist Menzels Lokschuppen & Töff Töff GmbH from Düsseldorf and DB Cargo sold 586 miniature locomotives of the original rail bridge locomotive during the joint campaign.

Head of Marketing Dr Martell Beck, Vice President of Marketing Thorsten Meffert of DB Cargo and the Deputy Managing Director of Menzels Lokschuppen, Stefan Nückel, presented the check to the Managing Directors of the Deutsche Bahn Foundation, Dr Hella Schmidt-Naschke and Jenny Zeller on Wednesday at Berlin Central Station.

The donation will be earmarked for the Deutsche Bahn Foundation's Ukraine relief efforts. Given the Russian attack on Ukraine and the devastating effects on the civilian population, the Deutsche Bahn Foundation developed a package of measures immediately after the war started to support the people fleeing from the war, also to Germany, and to provide targeted humanitarian aid. The foundation had appealed for donations and doubled the amount donated.

The Deutsche Bahn Foundation pools the DB Group's charitable activities. It is committed to people's integration on the fringes of society, creates sustainable educational opportunities and promotes voluntary work.

From April to May 2022, there were advance sales of the locomotives, which were available at Menzels Lokschuppen, as well as in the Bahnshop. The model in the design of the DB rail bridge locomotive is based on a DB Cargo locomotive of the Vectron 193 394 series. The special feature: Originally, this locomotive is labelled "Rail Bridge Ukraine" and the hashtag "#WeStandWithUkraine" on the occasion of the relief goods transport to Ukraine. The model locomotives are expected to be delivered to their customers in the fourth quarter of this year.
