The Deutsche Bundesbahn procured the locomotives of the class V 60 from the mid-1950s to remedy the lack of efficient shunting locomotives. These machines, which can be found at almost all German shunting yards, achieved a top speed of 30 km/h during shunting maneuvers and a line speed of 60 km/h. In the early 1990s, the DB cosidered to remotorize some machines with a state-of-the-art motor for the first time. Only machines which were converted to radio control from 1997 on, received a Caterpillar motor and were redesignated class 363.
