Story

Originaly this engine was build as a series 50 in 1942. As with many others it was reconstructed in 1962 by the Eastern German railways into class 50.35-37. At the end of her actual service, she was sold to the Vennbahn in the early 90s. There she was refitted with oil-burners. In 2006 she came to the VSM. There she got another number: 50 0073-2. This was a logical number as the last official 50-series with oil-firing was 50 0072.
