Diepholzer Maschinenfabrik Fritz Schöttler GmbH (Diema) is one of the best-known field railway manufacturers in Germany. The factory was located in Diepholz and the company mainly produced locomotives for field, peat and mining railways.
The DS30/40 shared a common body fitted with a gearbox and chain drive and were built for many years after the Second World War. During that time several versions of cab were fitted. Our kit represents a taller late model cab fitted from the mid 1960s, and is based upon on a 900mm gauge prototype used on the Klasmann-Werke Gmbh network of lines in Elwerath, Germany.
