The German express locomotive, number 18 201 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn in East Germany, was made in 1960-61 at Meiningen repair shop as a conversion of the Henschel-Wegmann locomotive 61 002, the tender from 44 468 and parts of H 45 024 and Class 41. It is the fastest operational steam locomotive in the world. The need for the conversion was mainly that the research institute at VES-M Halle urgently needed locomotives that could do at least 160 km/h in order to test passenger coaches.
