In the mid-1960s, the ÖBB commissioned a new series of diesel locomotives to replace the steam locomotives 52, 77, and 93. After having built a few prototypes, the Jenbacher Werke finally delivered the 2043 series with a 1500hp two-stroke diesel engine. In the beginning the locomotive was authorized to run with a top speed of only 100kmh, but later was allowed to reach 110kmh.
With its 17t axle weight it was suitable for use also on branch lines.
