S 3/6


Connoisseurs have regarded the S 3/6 as one of the most successful and beautiful locomotives in the world. The unusual tapered cab, the cone-shaped smoke box door and the immense cylinder block were characteristic features of this popular class. Its efficient coal consumption and good running qualities proved its use in regular operation. The two inboard high pressure cylinders and the two outboard low pressure cylinders were coupled to the center driving wheels, a very high level of thermodynamic efficiency was achieved with this four cylinder propulsion system.


The German State Railroad Company acquired these locomotives and designated them the class 18.4.  Nineteen units even made their way to France and Belgium. The last locomotives of this successful class were retired in 1960.  S 3/6 3673 has been in operation since 1996 at the Bavarian Railroad Museum in Nordlingen, Germany.
