The class V 100 diesel locomotives were developed in the Fifties initially as a replacement for the class 64 and 86 steam locomotives and were designed for light service on main lines and mixed use on branch lines. The V 80 served as a prototype, but the new locomotive was supposed to be considerably more cost efficient. The engine layout in the front longer hood had good access externally by means of a hood-shaped sliding door. These locomotives were general-purpose units and pulled light and medium size passenger, limited stop passenger, and freight trains on main and branch lines. In 1968, the V 100.20 locomotives were given the computer generated class designation 212, and the units for lines with steep grades ran as the class 213. Starting in the mid-Nineties they were used considerably less, and the last locomotives were put into storage at the DB AG's freight service division (railion) in December of 2004. Most of these retired locomotives were not scrapped but were sold mostly by locomotive dealers. Many are used now by track construction firms in France and Italy. German private railroads and foreign state railroads are also still grateful recipients of the V 100.20 (212).
