BR 17.5

The first steam locomotive of type S 3/5 H was locomotive 3329 (Maffei 1906/2520), who was exhibited at the "Bayerischen Landesausstellung" in Nürnberg. From 1908 the Bavarian Railways ordered by Mafffei only the superheated version of the series S 3/5 (H stood for "Heißdampf"). The locomotives were capable of pulling a train of 450 ton on a flatland with a speed of 100 km/h, and a train of 370 ton on a hillside of 1:100 with a speed of 50 km/h. From thirty locomotives delivered to the Bavarian railways between 1906 and 1911, four locomotives were going to France after the first world war and two were going to Belgium.
