Prototype: Class 42 steam locomotive with tender of the German Federal Railways (DB), epoch III. Version of the "Kriegslokomotive" with "standard lights" and short chimney; running No. 42 694.
In 1943, the heavy war locomotive of the 42 series was developed with 17 t axle pressure. It was intended for use in Austria, but also in occupied areas where the superstructure allowed. The plan to build 8000 locomotives (later reduced to 5,000 locomotives) was stopped by the end of the war, and finally more than 860 pieces were produced. The locomotives were used at the DB until 1960 and at the DR until about 1970.
