The Deutsche Bundesbahn procured the locomotives of the class V 60 from the mid-1950s to remedy the lack of efficient shunting locomotives. The difference between the V 60 (260) and V 60.1 (261) series is the higher friction load of the class 261. These machines, which can be found at almost all German shunting yards, achieved a top speed of 30 km/h during shunting maneuvers and a line speed of 60 km/h.
As of 1st October 1987, the series designation was changed to 360 or 361, and the engines were downgraded to small locomotives. This allowed them to be operated by small locomotive operators instead of the better-paid train drivers. Those locomotives equipped with radio remote control and automatic shunting coupling from 1988 were renamed as class 364 or 365.
