DSB Litra Ms and DSB Litra Ma 460 at the Railway Museum in Odense. Litra Ms
was the first lyntog ("lightning train") in Denmark, and it was buildt in
1935, when the first bridge over Lillebælt was opend. I 1963 it was replaced
by Litra Ma, whitch was derived from the german VT11.5, later 601. Litra Ma
was withdrawn from service few years ago, and some of them has been sold to
Poland. Originaly had Litra Ma a bright red livery, but in the later years
they were painted silver, whith gave them the nickname "The Silver Arrow".
