For a long time, the class 038 steam locomotives with their riveted tenders and "Witte" smoke deflectors were standard on German branch lines. They usually hauled passenger trains and were therefore not replaceable in the local service for a long time. It was not until the increasing modernization at the Deutsche Bundesbahn that they were replaced by diesel and electric locomotives.
