After the end of the war many locomotives of the DR were retrofitted with oil firing. The class 44 formed the backbone of the heavy freight train service until it was replaced by the modern diesel/electric locomotives.
Because of their enormous tractive power the locomotives were also called "Jumbos". The last "Pachyderms" were decommissioned at the DR in 1986.
Wagons, which would look good for this model locomotive to haul are, RC67088.
