Prototype information

Danish Diesel Dwarf - In the 1950s the Danish State Railways also purchased 40 small diesel locomotives to replace aged steam switch engines. These diesels were based on the Small Locomotive Motive Power Group II known in Germany as Köf II. The superstructures for these switching dwarfs in Denmark were given a basic paint scheme of orange later in their service lives. These locomotives provided a lively color accent in daily railroading with this warning color.
