The steam locomotive class 86 was a standard locomotive with tender which was built in large quantities by numerous German locomotive factories for the German Reichsbahn. After the war some of the steam locomotives remained in Austria and were used for the passenger and freight transport. The locomotive also hauled heavy ore trains of the series 52 - which definitely was her most spectacular mission ! The locomotives had their main bases at the firing houses Hieflau, Selzthal, Linz, Bischofshofen and St. Veit (Glan). They were scrapped in 1972.
