Development and deployment.
Since 1887, cogwheel locomotives pulled the trains through the Höllental in the south of the Black Forest. The steepest slope amounted to 55 o/oo. In the 1930s, the DR decided to use adhesion locomotives. As no suitable machines were available, it was decided to develop a new series. It became a 1 ́E1 ́-tender locomotive, the construction of which was derived from existing unit locomotives. The 3-cylinder drivetrain is derived from the BR44 and the boiler and smoke chamber of the BR62. Of this new series, BR85, 10 machines (85 001 – 85 010) were built by Henschel & Sohn and were taken into operation from January 1933 onwards. These locomotives were based in Freiburg. 9 units survived the 2nd World War. The 85 004 unit had sustained too much damage. These locomotives remained in service until 1960. Locomotive - running number 85 007 was the only unit that had been preserved and was used as a memorial in front of the Konstanz Technical University from 1966 - 1979.
