Brawa 40263 Steam Locomotive S 2/6 Pfalzbahn

Steam Locomotive S 2/6 Pfalzbahn Road no. 3201 The Pfalz region has been part of the Kingdom of Bavaria since 1816. In the Pfalz, however, the state left the construction of railways to private enterprise. In 1909, the State of Bavaria took over the Pfalz railways and renamed them the &ldquo, Bavarian State Railway &ndash, Left Rhine-Bank Network&ldquo, although they initially retained their independence for a while. For many years, the Pfalzbahn used doublecoupled express-train locomotives on its track sections. The flat landscapes of the Rhine Valley offer the perfect conditions for these locomotives &ndash, flat terrain, few stops and high speeds. The Bavarian class S 2/6 was perfect for this operating concept. That&lsquo, s why it was transferred to Ludwigshafen in 1910 after a short period in Munich.
