From 1977, the railway company of the German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Reichsbahn) procured 270 class 250 series locomotives (later renamed the class 155) for heavy freight transport. Due to their lack of streamlined curves, which are of negligible importance at their low top speed, they were given the nickname "Strom-Container" (electricity container) or simply "Backstein" (the brick).
In 2017, the Deutsche Bahn sold 100 locomotives to a consortium centred around Railpool and Toshiba. Railpool supplied the 155 138 with a shining silver livery designed to draw the attention. Some of these locomotives, which were authorised for operation in Germany and Austria, were put up for sale.
