Thought was given at the DB about increasing performance for the class V 160 locomotives used for heavy passenger service on the still non-electrified line with its many curves from Munich to Lindau. The plan was to enable faster and more efficient operations on the route Munich – Zürich. The class V 160 was projected for medium heavy service and the German Federal Railroad decided to purchase eight (8) class 210 diesel locomotives with gas turbine as auxiliary drive.
