From 1928 to 1943, almost all German locomotive factories delivered class 86 to the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft (altogether 775 locomotives). The 1,000 hp locomotives were designed to reach a maximum speed of 70-80 km/h; so the DR could use them in their primary application field for "branch lines", however, also for main and feeder lines. At the beginning of the 1950s, 164 class 86 locomotives were still used in the GDR. In 1970, the Deutsche Reichsbahn still provided 162 locomotives with an EDP-compliant running number but then scrapped them from 1973 on.
