Because of their stocky design, the class 64 locomotives were given the nickname "Bubikopf" ("pixie cut") - after a ladies' hairstyle which was popular at the time.
The class 64 tank locomotives were procured by the Deutsche Reichsbahn for passenger trains on branch lines. Between 1928 and 1940, a total of 520 machines were built. Numerous locomotive factories from Germany participated in their construction. Technically, it is largely identical in construction to the class 24 tender locomotive.
Our 64 295 was built in 1934 at the Maschinenfabrik Esslingen and was retired on June 14, 1974 at Weiden. A special feature are the attached snow clearers.
