The class 70.0 was one of the lightest, most attractive, tank engines used for passenger services. Her slim boiler and the huge distance between the forward axle and the driving wheels (4000 mm!) together with her relatively large cab were her typical trademarks. The Bayerische Staatsbahn [Bavarian State Railways] put the first locomotive of type Pt 2/3 in service back in 1909, with the last one appearing in 1916. All of the engines(type 1 B h2, with a top speed of 65 km/h) were delivered by Krauss in Munich. On nationalisation, the Deutsche Reichsbahn [German State Railways] took over the complete fleet of locos. 70 083 ist still in steam even today, tirelessly hauling the special excursion trains organised by the Bayerische Localbahn Verein [Bavarian Preservation Society].
