    Description
    A highlight in the history of the Bochum railway museum was the large vehicle show put on in 1985 as part of the 150th anniversary of the German railways. The G 3 standard locomotives were, in their day the standard goods train locomotives with the Prussian state railways.In 1905 the Prussian state railways grouped six-coupled, medium-powered, goods train, tank locomotives into its Class G 3. In addition to standard locomotives, there were also 285 G 3s that were not built to German state railway norms, because they had been built, in most cases, before the foundation of the Prussian state railways. The G 3 standard locomotives were, in their day the standard goods train locomotives with the Prussian state railways.One Prussian Class G 3, the Cöln 1100, later Saarbrücken 3143 has been preserved for posterity by the DB Museum in Nuremberg. dd-images.com
