143 locomotives were built between 1914 and 1922 for the ETAT. Intriguingly some were also built for industrial customers.
The locomotives were fitted with a servo-assisted reverser allowing much faster operation in their main role.
Designed as shunting locos they seem to have had a complicated career, passing from the ETAT to the SNCF with 52 of them requisitioned by the Germans during WW2. Only 25 of these were returned to France following the war. The SNCF retired them during the 1950s and 60s twelve more were sold on to industry.
Based in depots all across Northern France and also used in harbours and on Private industrial railways.
