The Deutsche Reichsbahn in the former DDR, set the Class 55.25-56 to work hauling goods trains and in heavy shunting duties. In contrast to the FLEISCHMANN models 4154 (Class 55, DRG, Epoch II) and 4155 (DB, Epoch III) the Reichsbahn loco has a centrally locking smokebox door handle and a loco number plate mounted beneath it. Naturally, her Reichsbahn livery and lettering is according to Epoch III.
