Prototype information

The "Habersack" / "Haversack" - Only a few Swiss locomotives won such great popularity that they had a name given to them. The very appropriately shaped class Eb 3/5 tank locomotive acquired its nickname "Habersack" from the knapsack long familiar to Swiss men from military service. SLM built 34 of these almost 1,000 horsepower (735 kilowatts) units from 1911 to 1916. They were good for 75 km/h / 47 mph in both directions and were initially intended for passenger trains. Meanwhile, these locomotives with their 74 metric ton service weight after being equipped with supplemental braking were quite suited for freight service too.

Starting in the Thirties, they were primarily assigned to this work. The comprehensive electrification of the Swiss rail network shrank the operating plans for these elegant representatives of Swiss steam railroad service. Between 1950 and 1965, the units were gradually stored or sold.
