  • Prototype information

    The class C express locomotive with a 4-6-2 wheel arrangement came into being at the start of the 20th century, because the steam locomotives in existence at that time were no longer adequate for the increasing demands on motive power, especially on grades such as the Geislingen Grade. This elegant, rakish machine was lovingly named the "Schöne Württembergerin" or "Beautiful Lady of Württemberg" and was one of the most successful creations of its kind. The first locomotives were already in service by 1909. By 1921 the Esslingen Machinery Company had delivered a total of 41 locomotives to the Württemberg State Railways.
