To haul fast passenger trains in the narrow network of the D-trains, the German Reichsbahn ordered in 1939 a total of 55 locomotives of the class 01.10. The big advantage of the express train steam locomotive was that it was able to reach a maximum speed of 140 km / h. Even on steep ramps, the locomotives kept a constant speed of about 100 km / h when tracing passenger trains.
When the locomotives were converted to oil firing at the Deutsche Bundesbahn in 1968, the "Iron horses" received the new class designation 012.
