    Model & Prototype Information
    In the 1950s, the German Federal Railroad DB was planning to procure a large number of three-axle shunting locomotives in order to modernize the relocation service. It was decided to drive with coupling rods and blind shaft. With a maximum speed of 60 km / h in the route, the locomotive was just as fast as the then usual transit freight trains, and exploited the permissible speed on secondary lines. The coal-fired holding furnace (Dofa oven) was only used to keep the parked V60 warm. From the 1990s, the DB replaced the stoves by powered with external power heaters, which the stoves at the front end accounted for below the right circulation. Other external changes were the installation of Indusimagneten from the mid-1960s and from 1985 the equipment of the majority of locomotives with automatic couplings. DB internal, the production machines are divided into light and heavy locomotives. Externally, both types do not differ. The 54 t heavy-duty version has a larger frame than the 48-ton light locomotives. With the introduction of the computer-friendly designations in 1968, the light locomotives were given the serial number 260, the heavy ones were classified as 261. Until the early 1980s, the locomotives of both series had to be staffed with train-trained personnel. Through a 1987 carried out re-drawing of the locomotives in the series 360 and 361, the DB assigned the machines to the locomotives and created for the trained as a locomotive shunter the job title Lok-Rangier-Führer. The machines equipped with automatic coupling (AK) and radio remote control were given the designation 364 (light construction) and 365 (heavy construction). The BR 362 and 363 emerged only from 1992 and designate locomotives that were equipped with the Caterpillar engine 3412 DI-TA instead of the original Maybach GTO 6 / GTO 6A.
