In 1941 and 1942, a total of four type D 311 double locomotives were put into service by the Deutsche Wehrmacht. They were constructed to haul heavy railroad guns. Two locomotives, the V 188 001 a/b and the V 188 002 a/b, were retained by the German Federal Railways following the war. A third locomotive was used to provide spare parts. These locomotives proved their worth in heavy freight train and shunting services, mainly on the Spessart-Rampe. After damage to the generator, the V 188 001 was phased out in 1968. The V 188 002, later the 288 002, remained in operation in the Franconian region until 1972. Both machines were scrapped in 1973.
