Prototype: The class V 180 of the German Reichsbahn of the GDR was the largest diesel locomotive built in the GDR. It was initially built in a four-axle version with two 2-axle bogies, later there were also 6-axle variants. As a masterpiece of engineering, the low axle mass of 15.6 t is still valid today for the six-axle version, so that this locomotive can also be used universally on secondary lines. She also has a permit for steep sections. The resulting possible field of application is unique in German large diesel locomotives.
The V 180 accelerated the change of traction at the German Reichsbahn replaced various steam locomotive series in the performance classes above the V100. Three copies, 118 548, 550 and 552, were assigned to the government train of the GDR. In 1995, the last locomotives divested operations from DB AG. After that, numerous copies were sold on private railways.
