The Bavarian Class Pt 2/5 H locomotive of the Royal Bavarian State Railways (Königlich Bayerische Staatsbahn) was built by Krauss for the Nuremberg Trade Fair in 1906. Because this locomotive could no longer fully meet the performance requirements at that time, it remained a one-off. It was nevertheless taken over by the Reichsbahn and retired in 1933. The loco had a superheated steam system.

The engine was scrapped after retirement.
