turn locomotive

In 1930 Borsig in accordance with the concept of German unified locomotives set out in 1920 developed three modern standard types for the Kingdom of SHS: an express locomotive and passenger and freight types. The class 06 was especially adapted to meet the challenge of mountain-character lines and the poor coal quality. Due to her weight, though, several bridges on the main lines had to be reinforced. She enjoys the reputation of a mountain express engine and is one of the few specifically locos. Also preserved are the 06-013, and the 06-016 now delivering spare parts for the active sister-engine 06-018.
