Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Deutsche Reichsbahn's Class 05 was a German class of three express passenger steam locomotives of 4-6-4 wheel arrangement in the Whyte notation, or 2'C2' in the UIC notation used in continental Europe. They were part of the DRG's standard locomotive series. Since the success of the Diesel high speed trains like the Flying Hamburger in the middle of the 1930s, locomotive industry worked on faster steam locomotives. The locomotives did regular service in FD express passenger trains, e.g. FD 23 from Hamburg to Berlin. The design speed was 175 km/h. In 1944, the streamline plates were removed. 05 003 had been rebuilt and lost the cab forward design.show more
