  • Prototype information

    The class 44 was built from 1926 to 1949 and is thereby one of the standard design locomotives built over the longest period of time. A total of almost 2,000 units were built. In Germany the legendary 44"s formed the backbone of the heavy freight train service for many years. In addition, they were in use in several European countries. A locomotive with tender ready for service weighed a proud 185 metric tons. The technically demanding three-cylinder running gear transferred the output of 2,000 horsepower to the rails.
