Mainline History: The Bavarian locomotives of the type Gt 2 × 4/4 were considered very special when launched in 1913. These locomotives were the largest and most powerful in Europe for that period. They were also on display as the “Mallet” locomotives at many locomotive exhibitions. The Gt 2x4/4 No. 5773 was also exhibited at a large Locomotive exhibition in Seddin in 1924. There, it was exhibited in the striking steel-blue livery of the Bavarian State Railways, after which it was the first one in the series to be converted and modernised at Maffei in Munich. This conversion featured the installation of improved high pressure cylinders, a second air pump, a super-heater of the latest Bavarian type and Riggenbach contra pressure brakes. This was especially done in view of the steep trajectories in the Frankenwald forest and the Spessart and on the Schiefe Ebene. At the locomotive exhibition in 1925 in Munich, it was once more one of the highlights.
