Former T161 s with DR in Eastern Germany

 

Former Prussian T161s remained in service with DR in Eastern Germany until mid-1970s. These photos have been taken from my collection.

 

 

94 1601-7 (BMAG 8186/1923), location unknown, February 22, 1975. This engine was withdrawn the following May, as one of the last examples of this class.

 

 

94 1909-4, formerly DRG 94 909, KPEV Kassel 8168 (BMAG 6931/1919); photo taken at the Cottbus depot on August 14,1971. Withdrawn in November 1974.

 

 

94 1670 (BMAG 8374/1924), Schleusingen, Germany, September 1970. This engine also survived in the DR service until November 1974.

 

 

Another photo, most probably taken on the same occasion: 94 1346 (formerly KPEV Essen 8694, BMAG 7780/1922). Withdrawn in June 1973.

 

 

And yet another one: 94 1541 (DRG 94 541, KPEV Halle 8120, BMAG 5232/1913). Withdrawn in May 1975. By chance, DB also had a 94 1541 (ex Essen 8766, BMAG 8088/1922), written off in July 1959.

 

 

94 1175 (BMAG 7508/1921) was built against an KPEV order and delivered as Essen 8302. Withdrawn in May 1975. Photo by Dieter WŁnschmann.

 

 

Ex-KPEV Essen 8368, then DRG 94 1221 (BMAG 7644/1921), location unknown, October 8, 1971. Withdrawn in April 1974.

 

 

94 1810 began its life as No 8114 of the Reichseisenbahnen Elsass-Lothringen (Grafenstaden 6815/1915). Taken over by French railways, in 1938 it was impressed into newly-created SNCF as 1-050-TA-114. Taken over by DRG in 1940, it remained in use with DR until February 1974. Suhl, Germany, September 15, 1973. Photo by Reiner Preuss.
