Prototype Info

The prototype V10C was an industrial diesel built by LKM (Lokomotiv Karl Marx) at their factory in Babelsburg from 1957 and based upon their earlier NS4c. The locomotives had an air-cooled 6-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 102 hp with power is transmitted to the wheels via a mechanical four-speed gearbox.

Depending on the gauge, the locomotive had an outer (600-762 mm) or inner frame (900-1067 mm). Due to their manufacture in large numbers and widespread use throughout East Germany many have survived into preservation and can be found in use across Europe.
