The Class D II engines of the Royal Bavarian State Railways (Königlich Bayerische Staatsbahn) were goods train tank locomotives. Of the 72 engines that were built, 70 entered the Deutsche Reichsbahn as Class 89.6. The majority were still working even after the Second World War. The last one was not taken out of service until 1960.
