    The class 50, at that time probably the most important DB steam locomotive of the 1950/60s with many design variants, had proven itself in front of almost all types of trains on main and branch lines. After all, more than 60 variants ensured that hardly any class 50 locomotive had an utterly identical appearance to any sister locomotive. The 1'E goods train locomotives, built in about 3,100 units from 1939 onwards, were robust, powerful, easy to maintain, and highly reliable. After 1945, more than 2,000 locomotives remained with the Deutsche Bundesbahn. The locomotives reached a top speed of 80 km/h, had a power output of approximately 1,200 kW and an axle load of 15 tonnes.

    When the EDP class scheme was introduced in 1968, there were still 1,452 locomotives in the DB's rolling stock. Since the serial number could only have three digits, the designations 051, 052 and 053 were introduced in addition to the class number 050.
