With the standard Locomotive programme, the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft (DRG) also had put the focus on the developement of a powerful goods train Locomotive. From the Locomotive, which was designated as class 44, the railway company expected to being able to transport freight trains of up to 1,200 t in the low mountain ranges and up to 600 t on steep ramps. In 1926, the first 10 Locomotives of the 22.620 mm long vehicles were delivered and had an axle arrangement of 1'E h3. They reached a top speed of 80 km / h - 50 km / h when reversing with tender first. During the Second World War, the Locomotive design was simplified and so, many class 44ÃœK Locomotives (war transition Locomotives) were being used from 1942 onwards.

After the end of the war the Locomotives of the Reichsbahn remained with the following railway companies:

  • 1.242 locos: Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB)
  • 335 locos: Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR)
  • 67 locos: Polskie Koleje PaÅ„stwowe (PKP)
  • 3 locos: ÄŒeskoslovenske statni drahy (ÄŒSD)
  • 16 locos: Austrian Federal Railways (OBB)
  • 14 locos: French State Railways SNCF (as class 150 X)
  • 1 loco: Belgian State Railways SNCB

Many Locomotives of the DB and the DR were retrofitted with oil firing, in eastern Germany even with coal dust firing. The series 44 formed the backbone of the heavy freight train service all over Germany until it was replaced by the modern diesel and electric Locomotives. Because of their enormous pulling power the Locomotives were also called "Jumbos". The last "Patchyderms" were decommissioned at the DB in 1977 and at the DR, in 1986. Even after officially leaving the regular service at the State Railways, some of the Locomotives of the series 44 (still operable) were preserved for historic traffic in railway museums.
