In order to have greater speed reserves when pulling express trains in the 1930s, the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG had the 03.10 developed with streamlined cladding. The acoustics of the 03.10 differ significantly from the two-cylinder standard locomotives of the class 03 with their three-cylinder engine. 45 copies of the 140 km/h fast racer survived World War II. Some of the locomotives were given new replacement boilers, the ones that had not been converted were eliminated until 1957.
In 1959 German DR equipped 16 samples of three-cylinder steam loco 03.10 with new boilers similar to classes 22 and 41. The so-called Reko-03.10 developed 2350 HP and reached a maximum speed of 140 km/h. After receiving oil firing equipment the performance improved again, so the Reko 03.10 stayed in service till 1980. British railfans nick-named museum loco 03 1010 the “roaring monster”.

Between 1967 and 1974, the French state railway SNCF purchased 92 copies of the six-axle CC 72000 for fast passenger traffic on non-electrified main lines. The 16-cylinder diesel engine AGO V16 ESHR from SACM has an output of 2650 kW at 1350 rpm and generates the energy for the two electric drive motors TAO 656 B1 in the bogies. The maximum speed is 160 km/h.

In 1939 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG received 1st of more than 3100 samples of 2-10-0 two-cylinder steam loco BR 50. The loco developed 1625 HP and reached a maximum speed of 80 km/h. With its axle load of just 15,2 tons the locos were used even on branch lines with light weight rails. Locos of DB quitted service in 1977, the DR locos were used for ten more years.
In the early 1950s German Deutsche Bundesbahn DB decided to replace worn out boilers of Class 41 steam locomotives with new ones. The 40 locos with coal firing developed 1940 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The 41s werde used for fast freight and heavy passenger service.
In the early 1950s German Deutsche Bundesbahn DB decided to replace worn out boilers of Class 41 steam locomotives with new ones. The 40 locos with oil firing developed 1975 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The 41s werde used for fast freight and heavy passenger service.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 10 samples of four axle steam locomotive for shunting service in 1928. The two cylinder locos BR 81 developed 860 HP and reached a maximum speed of 45 km/h. In 1963 final loco quitted service at DB.
German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft DRG ordered 520 samples of steam locomotive BR 64 for light passenger duty in 1928. The successful two cylinder locos developed 950 HP and reached a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The locos were use on main and secondary lines and stayed in service until 1975.
For heavy shunting and regional freight service Italian State Railway FS received 100 samples of diesel electric loco D.145 between 1982 and 1995. The Iveco diesel engine develops 825 kW and enables the locos to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h.
