Class S 3/6 Steam Locomotive, the "Hochhaxige" / "High Stepper"

Magical – Well-Designed – Elegant In the spring of 1907, Maffei was given an order to build a Pacific compound locomotive for the Royal Bavarian State Railways. Using the Baden "IV f" built by the same company as a basis, Maffei developed the Bavarian S 3/6, which was soon to fascinate generations of railroad fans with its timeless elegant looks characterized chiefly by the four-cylinder compound running gear.
