Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Prussian Class G 2 was allocated by the Prussian state railways to a number of older, 0-4-2 and 0-6-0 goods train locomotives which it had taken over from its predecessor railway companies. In addition it included a number of Prussian G 3 engines of the type operated by the Frankfurt/M and Mainz railway divisions. The best known was the standard G 2 type. In 1888/89 the Marsch Railway (Marschbahn) in Schleswig-Holstein procured a total of eleven locomotives for mixed traffic on branch lines, which were an evolutionary development of an older locomotive class from 1875. The engines were described as scissors locomotives (Scherenlokomotiven) because the second axle was directly driven and the first axle coupled. That meant that the connecting rods and coupling rods looked as if they were sliding across one another like a pair of scissors. The trailing axle and low-pitched firebox gave the engine good riding qualities.
