As one of a total of four double locomotives of type D 311, this locomotive was put into service in 1942 by the German Wehrmacht as the D 311.04. It was intended for use with the “Schwerer Gustav 2” gun. However, manufacture of the gun was never completed, and the locomotive was therefore put into service in and around Calais.
In September 1944, the locomotive ran aground on Dutch territory and was appropriated as spoils of war by the Dutch State Railways. Attempts to put the locomotive back into operation failed due to missing parts. Following mediation by a Haarlem-based scrap merchant, the locomotive returned to Germany, where it was returned to service in 1950/51 as the V 188 002, and remained in operation in the Franconian region until 1972.
