The total of six E 95 were developed to haul coal trains weighing 2,200 tonnes from Silesia to Dresden or Berlin. The development of the nose-suspended motors had made it possible to build a locomotive of this power class with this type of drive. Thanks to the carrying axles, it was possible to run at speeds sufficient for passenger trains. During test runs, the locomotives accelerated coal trains weighing up to 2,568 tonnes to 60 km/h. After the Second World War, they came to the Soviet Union for a while as reparations and were later refurbished again in the GDR. However, increasingly common problems led to their being phased out by 1969.
