From 1928 to 1943, almost every German locomotive factories delivered this type of locomotive to the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft (altogether 775 locomotives). The 1000-PS locomotives were designed to reach a maximum speed of 70-80 km/h and this meant that they could not only be used in their primary application field for "branchlines" but also for main and feeder lines. At the beginning of the 1950s, 164 class 86 locomotives were still available for operation in the GDR. Most of the locomotives were running for the depot in Aue on the lines of the Ore Mountains. In 1970, 162 locomotives were still provided with an EDP-compliant running number but then were scrapped from 1973 on.
