Cult Object in Commuter Service
The legendary DB class 98.3 (former Bavarian class PtL 2/2) branch line locomotives were seldom designated with their exact class number, because these agile branch line units were much better known by their nickname "Glaskasten" / "Glass Box". This endearing name owed its origin to the comparatively voluminous cab that even surrounded a large part of the boiler and that gave the engineer a good view of things on the railroad thanks to generous windows. You can now get this branch line legend for the first time with elaborate sound features.
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 98.3 "Glaskasten" / "Glass Box" (former Bavarian class PtL 2/2) without a jackshaft, two different Bavarian design type LC local railroad passenger cars, 3rd class, and one type G 10 boxcar with a brakeman's cab and end area reinforcement. The train looks as it did around 1952.
