The type E 44.5 includes two small series with a total of nine locomotives. After testing a pre-series loco on the routes of Rbd Breslau, all requirements for the Salzburg–Freilassing–Berchtesgaden route were satisfied so its future operation area was found quickly. The E 44.5 proved to be an ideal locomotive for the narrow radius and the 5 km long gradient section on this route.
The E 44.5 has not been modified during the long period of service. Special excitement is carried out by the cavity-frame and the filigree boogies.
We have build our Model as the E 44 506 (according to the initial number used till 1938) of the DRG and as the E 44 509 of the DB.
