Prototype: DB ordered powerful AVCO Lycoming T53-L13 turbines from the then Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz plants for the serial conversion of some of the popular V-160 family. From 1970 these units were used in the locomotives redesigned for the 210 series. The locomotives of company numbers 210 001–008 were quickly deployed on their intended regular routes.
The daily circulation included the "TEE Bavaria" express train and other heavy express trains between the Bavarian capital Munich and Lindau.
