All 45 98.10 locomotives were recovered after 1945 by the Deutsche Bundesbahn, and continued to be used exclusively in their native Bavaria. Many of the locomotives were still used after this time, in freight service especially. DB did not make any more major changes or improvements; in the late 50s, they added a third headlight. If the coal bin or the water tanks had to be replaced due to corrosion, the new parts frequently arose from welding technology. The last one was 98 1005 of the Schwandorf depot, which was decommissioned in 1966. Unfortunately, none of the modern Bavarian Vizinalbahn locomotives exist today.
