We’re happy to present you with more free production series! This time, the three passenger trains Greyhound, Cheetah and Artemis are getting new alternative looks.
First, we want to introduce you to the new production series for the Greyhound, the ‘Bavarian S 3/6’.
The S 3/6 (pronounced: S-three-sixths) was a steam engine produced by Maffei; a total of 159 units were manufactured between 1908 and 1931. It wasn’t only manufactured for an unusually long period of time, but it was also the most frequently produced Pacific-model engine among all the ‘Länderbahn’ engines. It reached a top speed of 120 km/h and represented a further development of the Baden IV f.
Some of the S 3/6 engines were modernised during the 1950s and used until the final unit was removed from active service in 1983. A number of remaining units are still on display in Bavarian museums today.
The Bavarian S 3/6 will be available in Rail Nation from 18th February 2019 as a free production series for the Greyhound!
Full steam ahead,
Your RN Team
