This locomotive is painted in photographic grey - a paint scheme commonly applied to steam locomotives during the period before colour photography became commonplace. It allowed for promotionally effective images which showed all the details.
The class 86 standard freight tender locomotive was intended by the Deutsche Reichsbahn to specifically be used on branch lines. In the period betweem 1928 and 1943, 776 units were built. Initially, they were also used in the lowlands, but after the Second World War they mainly operated on lines in the Central Uplands.
The 86 283 left the Berliner Maschinenbau AG in 1937, and it was withdrawn from service on July 1, 1974 in Schwandorf depot. The German Federal Railroad stationed most 86s in Nuremberg for Franconian branch lines. However, the Hof depot was also one of the popular deployment sites of 86s.
