The class 42 wartime locomotives remaining on the ÖBB after the end of World War II formed an indispensable component in the transport of heavy freight. Fifty-one units turned in marvelous results pulling heavy freight trains on the Semmering line, sometimes in double-heading operation or also as pulling and pushing locomotives. Progressive electrification made the mighty class 42 units superfluous, and in 1966, the last unit was removed from service. Road number 42 2708 remains preserved and can be found at the Strasshof Railroad Museum near Vienna.
