    Branch Line Legend. The legendary DB class 98.3 (former Bavarian class PtL 2/2) branch line locomotives were seldom designated with their exact class number, because these nimble branch line units were much better known by the nickname "Glaskasten" / "Glass Box". The comparably roomy engineer's cab is the reason for this affectionate name. The cab surrounded a large part of the boiler and its luxurious glassed in area gave the engineer a good view of the tracks in both directions. Partially automatic coal firing enabled economical one-man operation of these locomotives. This meant they were predestined for lightweight branch line service.
