Maneuverable Specialist for Mountain Routes – The Bavarian State Railroad purchased two electric locomotives for freight and pusher service on the route Freilassing – Berchtesgaden. These units had powered trucks and no pilot trucks and their design was quite progressive for that period. Both of these locomotives were placed into service in 1920 and turned in good results on their challenging home line. For that reason they remained there in service even into the German Federal Railroad period.
