After the war, a total of 185 German steam locomotives of the class 52 remained in what was then Czechoslovakia. The locomotives were integrated by the CSD State Railways into their own fleet as the class 555.0. During their years of service and the delivery of further series, these heavy locomotives were in part converted to oil main firing, which above all made life easier for the locomotive personnel. In the year 1973, the last CSD 555, designated the 555.0259, was retired from service. The locomotives were rapidly given the nickname “Nemka”, which translates as “The German” to indicate their origin.
