Development and Company
The Baureihe 81 was built on behalf of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRG). The BR80 was used as the basis for the BR81. The two locomotives therefore correspond in many respects, but the BR81 is longer and has 4 axles instead of 3. In 1928, 10 units were delivered by the Hanomag company. Later 60 more locomotives of this type were to be built, but this was canceled due to the war. The locomotives were used in freight traffic and heavy shunting work. After the war, the 10 locomotives of the Baureihe 81 were in service with the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB), with the last one being withdrawn from service in 1963. After the official decommissioning, the 81 005 served for a period as a work locomotive in Nied. The 81 004 was taken over in 1971 by the association “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Eisenbahngeschichte”. And DB locomotive 81 004 is the same: this is the result of 8 years on a pedestal in Marienhafe and now about 8 years at a museum in Naumberg
