BR 10 - The Black Swan of the Federal Railways.
Although the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) considered steam traction to be obsolete, in 1953 the Krupp company in Essen was commissioned to develop a new Pacific express train locomotive. In 1957, two elegant, 26,503 mm long and partially clad examples of the 2'C1' h3 type with a driving wheel diameter of 2,000 mm were delivered under the series number 10, which differed significantly in their firing type. While 10 001 was initially only equipped with additional oil firing (a conversion took place later), 10 002 had a main oil firing from the start. The two locomotives, embellished with silver decorative lines and fitted with conical smokebox doors, reached a top speed of 140 km/h with an induced power of 1,839 kW. However, due to the high axle load, the two locomotives were only permitted on certain main routes. They were stationed in the Bebra depot until 1962, then in the Kassel depot, from where they were used in heavy express train service on the north-south route and the Main-Weser railway. The general structural change with the constantly progressing electrification of the main routes were the main reasons why the 10 series did not go into series production. In January 1967, 10 002 suffered a break in a slide rod and was retired. In 1972 it was scrapped in the Offenburg depot. In June of the following year, 10 001 also had to resign from active service with the Deutsche Bundesbahn. However, the 109 t locomotive was preserved for posterity and can still be viewed in the German Steam Locomotive Museum in Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg.
