From 1960 to 1982, the DR purchased class V 60 shunting locomotives. Despite a positive response from the staff and workshop, the DR had some improvements made after the first serial delivery. The friction mass was increased to 60 t by installing a 5-ton counterweight. The driver's cab underwent the most noticeable changes from the outside. It was now the same width as the frame and had a sun protection roof. The locomotives with the improved design were then delivered from 1964 as V 60.12; after the number system was changed at the DR: as class 106.
