The 98 Class locos were renumbered Königlich Bayerische Staatsbahn (Royal Bavarian State Railway) 0-6-2 DVIII tank locomotives.
These locomotives were built by Krauss between 1888 and 1893. They were especially constructed to run on the alpine line between Freilassing and Berchtesgaden in Bavaria. The DRG renumbered nine of the locomotives (661-669) in 1923 when they took over operations.
Bockholt produced two versions of the model for Fulgurex in 1987. One featured the livery of the Königlich Bayerische Staatsbahn and the second was painted in a Deutsche Reichsbahn black and red livery.
The model is housed in a wooden box.
The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.
The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
