Comfort on Sharp Curves - In 1889, the sophisticated resort of Langenschwalbach – today Bad Schwalbach – received a rail connection. The line to Wiesbaden had grades of around 3.3% as well as curve radii of a minimum of 200 meters / 656 feet. The Prussian State Railways has passenger cars of a new type built just for this curving right-of-way. Unlike the usual commuter service passenger car designs of that time with almost always two or three rigidly mounted axles, the Langenschwalbach cars were equipped with two-axle trucks. This design turned out so well that they were built from 1892 on for almost 35 years without changes.
 
The 43058 and 43059 passenger car sets together with the 37144 tank locomotive make up a special and yet typical Era I branch line train.
