  • Prototype information

    Quiet Railroad Dwarf - The German State Railroad placed a total of 41 small locomotives with storage batteries into service starting in 1937 parallel to the diesel powered "Köf" small locomotives. Externally they resembled the Köf II and had a similar power output. Two axle-suspended motors were installed for the drive gear. These exhaust-free and quiet units were preferred in switching work involving hazardous materials cars in yards and in maintenance facilities. These small switchers could be used with no problems at all inside factory buildings, where diesel exhaust gases would have been a problem.
