Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Class G 3/4 H steam locomotive of the Royal Bavarian State Railways was built between 1919 and 1923. Its striking features in comparison with the G 3/4 N were its superheater system, the feedwater preheater, the larger and higher-positioned boiler and its Adams axle. In addition, they were more powerful and efficient than their predecessors. All 225 examples that were built were taken over by the Bavarian Group Administration within the Reichsbahn and were initially operated under their old numbers. Later they were given operating numbers 54 1501-1725 following the final renumbering plan issued by the DRG. The majority of locomotives also survived the Second World War. The last engine was not retired until 1966.show more
