From the mid-1950s, the Deutsche Bundesbahn procured 942 locomotives of the V 60/V 60.1 class for light and medium shunting services. The difference between the V 60 (260) and V 60.1 (261) class was the higher friction load of class 261. The locomotives achieved a top speed of 30 km/h during shunting manoeuvres and a line speed of 60 km/h. The power output was 478 kW. After the first locomotives were decommissioned in the 1980s, many were sold to railways in Germany and abroad.
