Rokuhan ST015-2 DB Shorty DB Class 491 Gentian Blue

AUGUST 2023 RESERVATION

DB Class 491 appeared in 1935 as a vehicle targeting tourists of DRG (German State Railways). In Germany, tourist transport using buses had already started at that time. In order to compete with, a single train with a high degree of operational freedom was required instead of the conventional observation passenger car that required a locomotive. This is how the class 491 was born. At the time of its introduction, there were still few electrified sections, so the operation section was very limited.

After the war, not only Western countries such as France and Italy, but also the former East Germany where electrified. The class 491 was active in a wide range of areas and regions in Germany. After its retirement, it was preserved in the Augsburg Railway Park without being demolished.

SA001-1 required to operate.
