FACTUAL NOTE: Approximately 2000 of these 2-10-0 three cylinder freight locomotives were built in Germany from 1926 to 1944. Of all the standardized German locomotives this class developed the highest tractive effort owing to its smaller diameter driving wheels. The Br 44 proved to be a trend setter and became the best of all the Reichsbahn locomotives. They were more powerful than their predecessors. The class 44 served in many European countries such as the Balkans, USSR, France and Poland.
