From 1905, the Swiss Federal Railways procured two new HG 3/3 series gear steam locomotives for their Bruenig line, which were supplied by SLM Winterthur. After the two prototypes proved themselves very well, a total of 17 of these locomotives were put into service until 1910, and another locomotive was delivered in 1926. One of the biggest advantages of these 30-ton locomotives â in addition to the higher output of 400 hp and the higher top speed of 40 km/h in friction mode and 13 km/h in gear mode â was the That they could also drive down the hill with the smoke chamber, so that the time-consuming shunting and turning of the locomotive at the passing height at the Bruenig was eliminated. After the electrification of the Bruenig Railway in 1941, the steam locomotives became unnecessary for regular traffic, but part of them remained in service as a reserve, most recently the locomotives with numbers 1065, 1067 and 1068. These were eventually retired in 1965. The locomotive 1067 then reached the Ballenberg steam railway, where it has been used for nostalgic journeys on the Bruenig Railway since 1972, together with the passenger cars BC 28, C 31 and the luggage wagon F 51. Since January 1, 2022, the name of the Bruenig Dampfbahn Museum Railway is BDB.Model of the gear steam locomotive HG 3/3 with operating number 1067 of the Brno steam train BDB from Switzerland.

Equipped with a mfx/DCC sound decoder with many light and sound functions. In-built smoke insert with wheel-synchronous steam output. Many set details, prototypical reproduced linkage, also of the gear drive. Length over buffer 33 cm. The matching wagons of the Bruenig steam railway BDB are available under article numbers 31331, 31332 and 41331.
