  • Prototype information

    The two-cylinder class 01 locomotives were delivered starting in 1925 as the first express locomotives from the German State Railroad's standard design program. Of the total of 231 units placed into service, those locomotives with road numbers from 01 102 on had reinforced brakes and front pilot truck wheels with a diameter of 1,000 mm / 39-3/8". This allowed the maximum speed to be increased from 120 to 130 km/h / 75 to 81 mph. Several of the sprightly 01 veterans are still in existence today. Their mighty appearance and the experience of hearing them "breathe" impress many friends of these "living" machines in museums and especially on special runs of steam express trains.
