  • Prototype information

    Comfort on Sharp Curves - In 1889, a rail line was built to the elegant spa of Langenschwalbach, now known as Bad Schwalbach. The line ran to Wiesbaden and had grades of about 3.3% as well as curves with a minimum radius of 200 meters / 656 feet 2 inches. The Prussian State Railroad had a new type of passenger car built especially for the many curves on this right-of-way. Although commuter cars at that time almost always had two or three rigid axles, the Langenschwalbach cars were equipped with 2-axle trucks. This design became known as the Langenschwalbach car, and it proved so effective that it was built for almost 35 years from 1892 on with no changes.
