The twin-cylinder engines of class 01 are considered the first express train locomotives to be produced in accordance with the standard construction program. The first construction lots were equipped with wheels with an 800 mm diameter and were authorised for 120 km/h. From the 01 102, wheels with a diameter of 1000 mm were used, as were reinforced brakes, which meant the authorised maximum speed could be raised to 130 km/h. After the Second World War, the DR maintained the original design with the large Wagner smoke deflectors and the air and feed pumps in the smoke chamber niches.
Locomotive 01 226 remained with the railway company of the German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Reichsbahn) after the war. After conversion to the EDP numbering plan, it was renumbered 01 2226-7 and remained in service until 1973.
