Marklin 3683

3683 - Guter-Triebwagen (Goods Railcar) BR 194.1

The Lokalbahn AG (Local Railroad, Inc.) of Munich (LAG) had, in addition to different passenger railcars, two self-propelled freight railcars among its rolling stock. The smaller of these two freight railcars was delivered in 1892 by MAN and SSW under the railroad number 895. The 7.93m (26') long unit reached a maximum speed of 40km/h (25 mph).

The iron underbody was riveted and the superstructure was of wood. This railcar had controls for an engineer at each end and a freight area in between with sliding doors on the sides fo the car. Both axles were powered by motors suspended at the end for the axle outside the frame. The output for the unit was 80 kilowatts.

When the LAG was absorbed into the German State Railroad (DRG), these freight railcars were reclassified at ET 194 11.
