  • Prototype information

    The units stationed at Offenburg were the flagship express locomotives on the Rhine Valley route and were often seen on the point of the German State Railroad's new deluxe train, the Rheingold. Maffei designed four-cylinder compound running gear for the IV h. The inboard cylinders were positioned way up to the front and gave the locomotive its unmistakable look. The tender also contributed to the characteristic look of the locomotive. It was unusually short with a truck and two axles mounted close to each other in the frame for the tender.
