1:87 Scale model of a class BR01 Steam Locomotive in Era IV Deutsche Reichsbahn livery details.

The Deutsche Reichsbahn feared that it would not be able to provide sufficient locomotives for the express trains due to the partly poor condition of the 01 series. Therefore the DR decided to redesign the class 01, which for the Reichsbahn also meant an improvement in performance and the elimination of technical problems, and it worked out brilliantly. The new welded boiler got a third safety valve, all boiler superstructures received guards, the driver's cab was modernised and the Witte wind deflectors were bevelled at the front. When the locomotives with coal firing were redrawn in 1970, they were classified as series 01.15. The last station of the 01 1518 locomotive was Saalfeld. It was taken out of service in May 1981.

Drive on two axles of the tender and via cardan shaft on all three powered axles of the locomotive.
