small diesel locomotive OHE 0603
|Builder:||Orenstein & Koppel|
|Power output:||80 PS|
|Maximum speed:||35 km/h|
|State:||In working order|
Loco 0603 was delivered new to the State Ministry of Aviation. After the war, the loco was taken over by the Osthannoversche Eisenbahn AG, which initially used it as a shunter in Lüneburg. Its last service was as a works shunter in the railway's repair shops in Bleckede.
In the 1960s, the loco was fitted with a new Deutz diesel engine of 90 HP. In the course of this modification, the engine bonnet was extended, the exhaust was sited on top of it and the loco was also fitted with a compressed air brake. The compressed air reservoirs are also sited on the top of the bonnet, directly in front of the driver's cab.
In 2001, the loco was sold to the Steam Loco Friends Salzwedel e.V. and has since then been used for internal shunting movements, originally in Salzwedel and now in Wittenberge.
