Award Information
Award From Multiple Unit Operator Limit 1
The locomotives of DR 130 family were produced in the Ukraine from the 1970s onwards, and were imported into the GDR. They were nicknamed Ludmilla, and over 700 units were produced between 1970 and 1982. After reunification of Germany, Deutsche Bahn (DBAG) inherited them and continue to make use of them, mainly as heavy freight locomotives, and they were renumbered according to West German practice. thus as mainline diesels the prefix "2" was necessary. The Class 130 was renumbered to DBAG Class 230 and Class 131 to DBAG Class 231, both were soon pulled out of service. The renumbered DBAG Class 232 are still in service and have taken over many freight services in Western Germany.
