The locomotive 99 562 is standing on a transport wagon. This way, the narrow-gauge locomotive could also be transported to the repair shop via standard-gauge lines.
The IV K ("K" for "Kleinspur", English: "narrow-gauge") is a four-axle Meyer steam locomotive with a 750 mm gauge of the Royal Saxon State Railways. A total of 96 units were built starting in 1900. The Deutsche Reichsbahn assigned them to the 99.51-60 class. The IV K was used in front of passenger and freight trains as well as mixed trains on all Saxon narrow-gauge lines.
Our 99 562 was built in 1909 by the Sächsische Maschinenfabrik formerly Richard Hartmann, Chemnitz. Between 1950 and 1964, large parts were renewed at Raw Görlitz, which almost amounted to a reconstruction of the locomotive. After an accident, the locomotive was parked in 1990 and came to the DDM in the mid-1990s.
