- Historical Significance: Germany’s need for steam locomotives during World War II led to the production of the BR 44, 50, and 86 locomotives. The Type 50 was prominent in 1939, but by 1941, the military demanded a simplified structure, giving rise to the Type 52 locomotive. Known for its excellent performance and cost-effectiveness, the Type 52 became a vital asset.
- Structural Features: The Type 52 locomotive boasts a wheel axle load of 15 tons and a top speed of 80 km/h. Its simplified design not only met military requirements but also conserved materials, work hours, and financial resources.
