In the late 1920s all the tracks around Munich were electrified. Hence the need arose for electric shunting locomotives at the larger station complexes. The Deutsche Reichsbahn commissioned AEG for the design and construction of the E60 series. In 1927, 2 locomotives were delivered, numbered E60 01 and E60 02. In 1928, a further 5 locomotives were delivered. In 1934, a further series of 7 locomotives were delivered. For the last 2 of this series, the electrical component was built and supplied by SSW (Siemens). For the construction of the Series BR E60 many components of the Series BR E91 and BR E 52 were used. The connection shafts came from Winterthur.
The locomotives were deployed in the State of Bavaria and were distributed amongst the depots in Munich, Rosenheim and Garmisch. From 1938 onwards they were also deployed in Austria. At the end of WW2, 7 of these locomotives were left behind in Austria but were returned in 1945 and 1946. In 1964, 4 locomotives were transferred from Munich to Heidelberg.
In circa 1960, the locomotives were upgraded and their electrical systems modernised. The window systems were renewed and adjusted and shunting platforms were added at either end.
In 1968, these locomotives were reclassified as Series BR 160 at the DB and were re-numbered from 160 001 up to 160 014. They were distributed over Garmisch, Rosenheim, Freilassing, Heidelberg und Treuchtlingen. In 1976, the locomotives were brought into the maintenance yards and in 1977 the first 2 were decommissioned. In 1980, only 3 of these locomotives, the 160 003 in Freilassig and the 160 009 and 160 012 in Heidelberg, were still in service. Locomotive 160 012 had been in service the longest and August 31, 1983 was the last locomotive of this series to be decommissioned.
Locomotive 160 009 is located in the Eisenbahnmuseum Darmstadt-Kranichstein.
