The class 52 of the former Deutsche Reichsbahn are the most known locomotives of the commonly named war steam locomotives. At the outset of the post war projects there were 15,000 locomotives being planned for production but then in 1942, only 7.000 and more were built. The locomotives were considered indispensable even after 1945 in many parts of Europe since they were used for reconstruction projects on a longterm basis.
