The BR 82 was, like the BR 23 and the BR 65, one of the latest constructions of a steam locomotive in Germany.

It was intended to replace the BR 94 (former T 16) and the BR 87 of the habour railway of Hamburger. It was constructed for heavy small distance freight service.

We have build the BR 82 in two different versions:
the BR 82 013 and the BR 82 041.
