Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The B IXs of the Royal Bavarian State Railways, built from 1874, were the first express train locomotives in Bavaria. As a result of the boiler being positioned low and the rear driving axle being under the outer firebox there was no longer any overhanging weight and the speed of the engine could be increased to 90 km/h. The locomotive could also haul a 150 ton train on the level at a speed of 70 km/h. The engines, retaining the design of their forerunners, had an outside locomotive frame and Stephenson valve gear. The units taken over by the Reichsbahn were run under the operating numbers 34 7421-7440. The locomotives built from 1874 were retired by 1924.show more
