With the steam locomotive of the S 3/6 series, the K.Bay.Sts.B. received an extremely powerful and state-of-the-art. Locomotives of this class were constructed up until 1931. They were designed to haul 400 tonnes, which was 10 express train passenger coaches, at the time.The S3/6 had a top speed of about 135 km / h. The class was renowned for smooth running - this was achieved with large diameter driving wheels, a four cylinder compound drive and superheated steam.. The fuel consumption was also kept low, so after only a few years of operation it was still possible to manage even longer distances of more than 800 kilometers. S3/6 No.3618 was considered a parade locomotive and received this Royal blue paint scheme.
The Prince regent coach was especially constructed on the request of the Royal household as they demanded a coach with the comfort they expected.
