    In the year 1912, the company then named k.k. priv. Südbahn-Gesellschaft put in an order for a tender locomotive required for their heavy-duty passenger train service as a replacement for the class 229 locomotives, which were no longer up to the task. In response, the locomotive factory of the Staats-Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft developed the series 629 hot steam-type as the first tender locomotive in the world with the 2'C1‘ Pacific axle arrangement. The initial 629 locomotives were supplied to the Südbahn-Gesellschaft in 1913, and 14 more were supplied over the following two years in a total of three delivery series. The exceptionally good performance of this class caused the imperial-royal state railways to purchase 25 almost identical locomotives up until the end of the monarchy's reign in 1918.
    Fifteen Südbahn engines and ten state railway engines remained in Austria following the end of the First World War. 15 of these had to be given to the newly-founded CSD, where they were designated as the 354.121 to 135."
