Mainline History:
Immediately after World War II, American soldiers were involved in the reconstruction of Germany’s infrastructure. The United States Transportation Corps (USTC) initially had to rebuild the systems and infrastructure for the transport needs of the military leadership. A company of railway pioneers took care of the refurbishing of large steam locomotives at the Henschel factory in Kassel. These soldiers were already true railway-men at heart, in their homeland. Apparently, their superior officer shared this passion, and thus one of the "new" express train locomotives from the series 03.10 could be re-shaped in the design of the American Atlantic Coast Line. The typical large "High Beam" was built up and the violet insignia of the ACL were affixed. In doing so, the service trains of the USTC conveyed the impression of the large trains along the east coast of the USA during the occupation time.

The locomotive has been tested and is fully functional.
