In 1941 and 1942, the German Wehrmacht put four double locomotives of the class D 311 into service. They had been built to pull heavy railway guns. Two locomotives, the V 188 001 a/b and V 188 002 a/b, continued to be used by the Deutsche Bundesbahn after the war. A third locomotive served as a spare parts donor. They proved their worth in the heavy goods train and shunting service, mainly on the "Spessart" ramp. After the generator was damaged, the V 188 001 needed to be dismantled as early as 1968. The V 188 002, later designated as 288 002, still operated in the Franconian area until 1972. In 1973 both locomotives were scrapped.
