Lenz 40257-01 DR Br56.2 2-8-0 Steam Locomotive with tender. EpIII O Gauge
No. 56 438 DR Version.
The DRG took the Prussian built Br55 0-8-0 and re-built them as 2-8-0 locomotives. The conversion increased the running speed and decreased the axle loading so that the Br56.2 could run on branch lines. They were now suitable for passenger trains as well as freight. 691 were originally converted and 368 entered DB service. They ran until 1968 in the West and 1970 in the East.
