  Era II (1925 - 1945) Era II (1925 - 1945)

Right after World War II, American soldiers were involved in the reconstruction of the German infrastructure. The United States Transportation Corps (USTC) first had to set up arrangements for the transportation needs of the military administration. A company of railroad specialists handled the overhauling of large steam locomotives at the Henschel plant in Kassel. These soldiers were already railroaders heart and soul back home. Apparently, their superiors shared this passion, and hence one of the "new" class 03.10 express locomotives was painted in the design of an American railroad, Atlantic Coast Line. The typical high beam headlight was installed and the purple emblem of the ACL was applied on the locomotive. During the occupation period, the service trains of the USTC thus provided the impression of the great name trains along the east coast of the USA.
