Formerly serving as a tanker shunting steam locomotive at the Salgótarján Steel Works, it has been part of Salgótarján's main train station for decades, making it a dominant feature of the cityscape. This year it got a partner: a diesel-mechanical shunting locomotive operating in the flat glass factory and then in the steel factory, which came to the local flat glass factory in 1963, following an order from the company, until the late 1970s. From then on, it was transferred to the steel mill, where it was employed until its liquidation.
The locomotive was purchased by the Dornyay Béla Museum on the initiative of a civilian, and at the recommendation of the MÁV and with the assistance of the MÁV, it was placed at the main railway station. The locomotive was renovated by local railwaymen, selflessly and with great enthusiasm. In this way, a piece of Hungarian historical heritage of local historical significance is saved. It will be a peculiarity to have two locomotives of historical significance at a train station.
