Until the mid-1950s, engine technology did not allow mainline diesel locomotives to be built with just one engine and sufficient power. Consequently, the V200 and V200.1 series were created. These were equipped with two propulsion systems in order to fulfill their performance program. However, the manufacturers were working flat out on more powerful engines and by the end of the decade an output of 1400kW from just one engine was no longer an illusion. As early as 1956, Krupp therefore began developing a medium-heavy mainline diesel locomotive with one motor, steam heating and a top speed of 120 km/h. In 1960, a total of ten pre-series machines were delivered by Krupp and Henschel. Nine were given the nickname "Lollo" after Gina Lollobrigida because of their looks. The tenth locomotive already had a sober, much more angular shape, which was much cheaper to produce and was therefore adopted for the series. The machines proved themselves in freight train service and tourist traffic and were built in series after extensive testing from 1964 to 1968. In total, Krupp, Henschel, KHD, Krauss-Maffei and MaK delivered 214 series locomotives. They were used throughout Germany. With the delivery of the BR 218 and the increasing use of electric train heating, it was used more and more in freight transport. After the model locomotives had been phased out by 1984, the series locomotives were phased out in 1993. More and more railcars were used in tourist traffic, which led to a further displacement of diesel locomotives. When freight traffic declined, the DR came with the class 232. With this locomotive it was possible to replace double traction. By 2004 all 216 had been retired. However, numerous locomotives went to private RUs in Germany and abroad, and in the meantime some have even returned and are in use in almost their original condition. Among other things, the DB Museum will receive road numbers 216 003 in Lübeck and 216 067 in Koblenz.
