Hi,

I converted the Borsig BR53 and included red tail lights. Somehow it looks odd to see a steam loc with two red tail lights.

What were the regulations on tail lights (one, two, none?) for single steam loks driving at night?

Best regards,
Gregor

Yes two red tail lights. They used a red glass cover over the rear lamps.

I don’t know about German regulations regarding tail lamps but in the UK tail lamps were required on the rear of the locomotive ( be it coal bunker or tender) but only if the locomotive is running light engine ( ie no train) intermediate tail lamps forbidden

Maerklin offered once an Insider BR 65 (39650) with red marker lights

This loco was used in shuttle trains without any reversing of train and/or loco.

Did some further investigation. For loc's driving alone there is a simplified tail light Zg4, which is only one red marker light on the right hand side.

See below for Roco model featuring this single tail light:

When pushing a passenger train, double tail lights Zg3 should be used.
