The prototype for 4162 was built in 1919 by the firm of Henschel in Kassel under works number 16 904, and became loco number 2483 "TRIER" of the former K.P.E.V. On being taken into the former Deutsche Reichsbahn, she received the loco number 38 2547. On conversion to computerised numbering, she became known as 038 547-6. During the course of conversion, several of these locos were given a "tub tender" from the remainder of the wartime locos of the Class 52.
