There were only 10 locomotives of the approximately 133-tons heavy tender locomotives built and operated on the lines of the so-called „Höllentalbahn“. The locomotives of the type 85 were the heaviest steam locomotives that were ever used in Germany. Because of their superior tractive force, the bullish looking tender locomotives proved to be very successful when operating on steep mountain inclines. Since the locomotives had a superior performance, the toothed racks became totally unnecessary and were removed as early as 1933. The locomotives
were also much appreciated by the staff of the locomotives and enjoyed great popularity as they reduced the travel times of passenger trains by more than 1/3 of the original travel time.
