This sectioned display at Lokwelt Freilassing in Germany (photographed in August 2017) shows the engine and transmission of a DB V160 (later 216 class) locomotive. Although this is a much larger locomotive, it illustrates the diesel-hydraulic principle used on the EBR 10 and 11 class locomotives, notably the conventionally placed motor (in this case a V16 MTU unit rather than a smaller Paxman or Caterpillar unit), the low mounted Voith transmission that goes through the loco frame (pictured is an L821rs unit rather than the smaller L37zUb used by the EBR) and the cardan shaft drive to a gear box on each axle
