  • Prototype information

    The computer designation 081 had been planned for the class 81 tank locomotives in the numbering scheme after 1968. The end of steam operation was already foreseeable at this time. In the Eighties, the DB used several industrial diesel locomotives as part of a test program for purchasing new motive power. These locomotives were given the class designation 258. Changes in the freight service market led to regular production of these locomotives, but chiefly for privately owned railroads.
