From 1903, Gölsdorf had 17 class 129 tank locomotives built, which had a 2-6-0T wheel arrangement and were intended for commuter service. In 1903, the Südbahn ordered eleven of these locomotives with larger supplies, which were given a trailing axle. The kkStB also ordered 239 of these locomotives, designated as the class 229, and rebuilt the class 129 in the same way. The Serbian State Railways and the EWA also received some machines. After the First World War, a total of 145 locomotives came to ČSD, where some were superheated and some were given a trailing bogie. The 90 locomotives of the BBÖ were classified by the Reichsbahn in the class 759 from 1938.
