The Baldwin Locomotive Works was an American manufacturer of railroad locomotives from 1825 to 1956.
The Class B XI engines of the Royal Bavarian State Railways (Königlich Bayerische Staatsbahn) were built between 1895 and 1900 by the firm of Maffei for deployment in Bavaria.
The Class S 2/5 locomotives operated by the Royal Bavarian State Railways (Königlich Bayerische Staats-Eisenbahnen) included two express train, steam locomotives of American origin which were fitted with Vauclain compound engines.
A carrying wheel on a steam locomotive is a wheel that is not driven; i.e., it is uncoupled and can run freely, unlike a coupled or driving wheel.
A connecting rod is a shaft which connects a piston to a crank or crankshaft in a reciprocating engine.
Cylinders were an important structural part of the steam engines which powered locomotives.
The Deutsche Reichsbahn, also known as the German National Railway, the German State Railway, German Reich Railway, and the German Imperial Railway, was the name of the German national railway system created after the end of World War I from the regional railways of the individual states of the German Empire.
On a steam locomotive, a driving wheel is a powered wheel which is driven by the locomotive's pistons (or turbine, in the case of a steam turbine locomotive).
Georg Krauß, from 1905 Ritter von Krauß (25 December 1826 – 5 November 1906) was a German industrialist and the founder of the Krauss Locomotive Works (Locomotivfabrik Krauß & Comp.) in Munich, Germany and Linz, Upper Austria.
The Kingdom of Bavaria (Königreich Bayern) was a German state that succeeded the former Electorate of Bavaria in 1805 and continued to exist until 1918.
A Krauss-Helmholtz bogie (Krauss-Helmholtz-Lenkgestell) is a mechanism used on steam locomotives and some electric locomotives to improve curve running.
This List covers the locomotives and railbuses of the Bavarian railways, excluding those of the Palatinate (Pfalz).
A locomotive frame is the structure that forms the backbone of the railway locomotive, giving it strength and supporting the superstructure elements such as a cab, boiler or bodywork.
Rail freight transport is the use of railroads and trains to transport cargo as opposed to human passengers.
As a nation-state, Germany did not come into being until the creation of the German Empire in 1871 from the various German-speaking states such as Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony, Baden and Württemberg.
A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine.
The Stephenson valve gear or Stephenson link or shifting link is a simple design of valve gear that was widely used throughout the world for all kinds of steam engines.
A tender or coal-car is a special rail vehicle hauled by a steam locomotive containing its fuel (wood, coal, or oil) and water.
The Vauclain compound was a type of compound steam locomotive that was briefly popular around 1900.
The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844 used to regulate the flow of steam to the pistons in steam engines.
Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, represents the wheel arrangement of two leading wheels on one axle, usually in a leading truck, eight powered and coupled driving wheels on four axles and no trailing wheels.
