The DB Class 240 are a class of Co'Co' diesel electric locomotives which were produced in the 1980s by MaK in collaboration with Krupp and ABB as DE 1024 as prototypes/technology demonstrators for a possible future order from the Deutsche Bundesbahn. Three units were made, but no orders arose, at least in part to the Reunification of Germany making similarly specified DR Class 132s available in large numbers. The concept and design of these locomotives served as the basis for the NSB Di6 class. The locomotives can be considered forerunners of the modern diesel electric locomotives of the 2000s such as the Eurorunner, both for the inclusion of an electronically controlled power system, and the modular design plan. Since only one locomotive remains in service, with no further machines expected, the final example has an element of cult status amongst some diesel-electric train fans.
