The growing long-distance travel in Germany, route expansions and reduced travel times meant that the two-cylinder express locomotives of the 01 and 03 series were pushed to their limits more often than before. In 1936 it was decided to purchase newly developed three-cylinder express train locomotives, in keeping with the spirit of the times with streamlined cladding. In December 1939, Borsig delivered the first prototype locomotive of the 03.10 series.
03 1001, 1002 and 1043 undertook numerous test runs, during which the triple engine ran smoothly even at 150 km / h and the aerodynamic fairing resulted in considerable fuel savings compared to the series 01, 03, 17.10, 18.3 and 18.5.
Of the 60 machines actually built, only 45 survived the war. The Deutsche Bundesbahn was able to add 26 of these to its inventory. In a completely different way than originally planned, the great career for 03.10 began only after she had been “undressed” and worked up. Up until 1966, these noble racers, most recently with new high-performance boilers, served their service in high-quality express train services on the DB.
