Locomotive Prototype: The Bavarian Pt 2/3 had a very striking appearance. Her slim boiler, the huge distance between the leading bogie and the driving wheels (4000 mm!) and the relatively large driver's cab made her really stand out. The Bavarian State Railways set the first loco of the Pt 2/3 into service in 1909, and the last in 1916. All machines (Type 1 B h2, top speed 65 km/h) were delivered from Krauss in Munich. The Deutsche Reichsbahn took over the complete class and renamed them to BR70. Finally, the last loco was taken out of service by the Deutsche Bundesbahn in 1963.
