The standard locomotives of class 50 count amongst the most successful design of the DRG. Up until 1943, some 3,164 engines of this universal locomotive had been built, which, thanks to their low axle loading, could even be used on secondary lines. The FLEISCHMANN model shows 50 002 in her typical epoch II appearance, with double headlights, boiler with four domes, Wagner smoke deflectors and 2'2' T26 tender. On delivery (1939) the locomotive was first stationed at the loco depot Leipzig-Wahren.
