The Class Pt 2/3 of the " Royal Bavarian State Railways", with a maximum speed of 65 km/h and a length over buffers of 9165 mm and a comfortable water supply of 6 m³, offered the emerging competition of steam railcar Paroli . Their unusual appearance was created by the 4000 mm wheelbase between the leading axle and the first powered axle. The Pt 2/3 was developed as a light mainline locomotive. It was universally encountered on main- and branch lines, because of their excellent performance . Due to the nature of the superheated steam engine and its chassis, a good cornering was achieved even on curves of 140 m radius. The DRG took over all the 97 machines as Class 70 and equipped some of them with a Bissel - axle . All survived the Second World War besides 70 050 and did their job reliably till 1963. The last Pt 2/3 retired on 13 July 1963, as BR 70 083 at the DB. It is still preserved as a operational museum locomotive and enjoys great popularity on excursion trips.

At the request of many customers KM1 decided to fully redevelop this new series and issue them again. They should be delivered in 2015, exactly 10 years after the first model. It was the second locomotive that was built and delivered by KM1. In combination with the branch line wagons ( bay 05) , the BR 98.3 (glass box) , the BR 98.75 (Berg) and numerous freight cars, this locomotive can be used on smaller layouts and still get a fascinating and prototypical operation out of it. Equipped with the latest technology, the model of this particular series is sure to be a show piece on your layout. All photos shown here are from 2005 models.
