    Switching Prehistoric Rock on the Mittelweser Railroad - At one time the equally unassuming as well as lovable class Köf II small diesel locomotives were in wide use as switch engines and were a common sight at most of the German transfer yards. A total of over 1,600 of these units were placed into service from 1934 to 1965. Many of these almost indestructible small locomotives are still faithfully providing service today on numerous privately owned railroads and industrial railroads. The maximum speed for these small locomotives was 30 to 45 km/h / 19 to 28 mph, depending on the design. The most powerful versions were equipped with a 6-cylinder diesel motor with 128 horsepower. The privately owned Mittelweser Railroad also has a Köf II on its roster designated as the V 121.
