The Pegasus was an early, passenger train tender locomotive operated by the Leipzig-Dresden Railway or LDE. She was one of the first locomotives to be built in Germany. The PEGASUS was built in 1839, the first locomotive to be built by the S chsische Maschinenbau-Compagnie in Chemnitz. In 1842, after a long period of trials, she was bought by the Leipzig-Dresden Railway Compagnie for 6250 talers. The unusable locomotive COLUMBUS was used in part-payment. The design of the PEGASUS was based on the English locomotive STURM. In 1862/63 the engine was retired from the LDE.show more
