The class 03.10 steam locomotives remaining with the German State Railway received a new high-performance boiler construction from the year 1959 in order to achieve increased economic efficiency in daily operation. These locomotives were designated as “Rekoloks”. They were also equipped with a square-shaped mixing preheater positioned in front of the chimney. Several years later, in 1965, all the machines remaining the property of the German State Railway were converted to main oil-firing systems. The locomotives were operated in daily express train transport until most of them were withdrawn from service in the 1970s and rolled into sidings. During their years of service at the DR, they achieved in part record-breaking running performances of approximately 20,000 kilometres per month.
