Operation with battery-powered railcars was introduced in Germany before the First World War. The two-part battery-powered railcar of the "Wittfeld" type, whose batteries were housed in the distinctive front end, was in use until after the Second World War. After 1945 the Deutsche Bundesbahn began to deal with this type of drive again. The ETA 176 has made a name for itself as the “Limburg cigar”, but only eight of them were built. From 1953, the more cost-effective ETA 150, which had roughly the same performance characteristics, was put into service in large numbers. A total of 232 units of the ETA 150 (from 1968 series 515) were built by 1965. In addition, 216 type ESA 150 control cars (later the 815 series) were put into operation.
