Die Lokomotive, February 1912

As a development of the class 60 of which most operated with saturated steam and a few had a Clench steam dryer, Gölsdorf had the class 160 with a Schmidt superheater built from 1909. As is usual with machines from Gölsdorf, the superheater was chosen to be relatively small in order to avoid importing the lubricating oil that would otherwise be necessary. A visible difference to the class 60 was the missing second steam dome. A total of 46 locomotives were built in Wiener Neustadt by 1910 and by the Bohemian-Moravian machine works.

After the First World War, 42 of the 46 locomotives came to Poland. The PKP called them Ti16 and during World War II the locos became the class 540 at the Reichsbahn. The remaining locomotives came to Italy as the FS class 605. In 1939, one locomotive was taken over in Hungary by MÁV as the class 330.9.
