Product Features and Details

Prototype: The Prussian T 16.1 locomotives were built in the early 1900's for the Prussian state railways as a goods train tank locomotive.  Besides the Prussian versions 6 examples were also procured by the Imperial Railways in Alsace-Lorraine.  The T16's turned out to be excellent locomotive and between 1913 and 1924 a total of 1,242 locomotives were built.  After 1925 when the Deutsche Reichsbahn unified all the German State Railroads the T 16's were redesignated as the class BR 94.5.  In the DRG renumbering plan they were given the numbers 94 502–1380 and 94 1501–1740. Three of the T 16's engines belonging to the Imperial Railways in Alsace-Lorraine remained in Germany and were given the numbers 94 1378–1380.

After WWI many T 16's were given to other countries as war reparations.  A handful of T 16's were given to the (PKP) Polish State Railway where they were designated as the TKw 2.  After 1945 many former French and Belgian locomotives were left with the Deutsche Reichsbahn in East Germany as locomotive numbers 94 1801–1810.  In 1950, another T16 from the Halberstadt-Blankenburg Railway was acquired and numbered as 94 6776.  After WWII the Deutsche Bundesbahn designated the BR 94's as class 094; in East Germany the DR reclassifying its engines as class 94.1.

In addition to heavy shunting and line duties the locomotives were also heavly used on steep routes like the Friedbergbahn (Suhl–Schleusingen), Scheldetalbahn (Dillenburg-Gönnern), Rennsteigbahn (Ilmenau–Schleusingen), the Erkrath–Hochdahl ramp and the Murgtalbahn (Rastatt–Freudenstadt).  For such duties the steam engines were equipped with Riggenbach counter-pressure brakes.  The BR 94's were so effective on steep grades that they replaced most of the time-consuming rack railway operations through-out Germany
