These are formerly East German Br.132 locomotives produced in the Soviet Union in the 70s and early 80s in what is now Ukraine. They are powerful six axle diesel electrics made for heavy freight and passenger service. They are fully equipped for express passenger service with a top speed of 140 km/h (87 mph) with a nearly 4,000 HP turbocharged 16 cylinder engine.
After re-unification, Deutsche Bahn absorbed locomotives and rolling stock from the former GDR. These locomotives were rebuild and modernized and redesignated the Br.232. DB used these locomotives until the late 90s and started selling them off to privat cargo carriers and short line passenger branches.
