At the HSB (Harz Narrow-gauge railways in Germany) there are today - just like 100 years ago - Mallet locomotives in service that prove that prove their performance and capability on a daily basis. These are the only currently operational Mallets in Germany. They also represent the longest service life of all German steam locomotives since they have been in continuous operation since 1897, except for a few short breaks. The routes in the Harz mountains include long stretches with inclines of up to 25 ‰, demanding the highest levels of performance By both man and machine.

Since the commissioning of the Nordhausen-Wernigerode Railway (NWE, "Harzquer- and Brockenbahn") Mallet locomotives played a dominant role on that route. When the first sections of that route were placed into service in 1897, the first mallets were also delivered. Until 1901, the locomotive manufacturer Arnold Jung, Jungenthal and the Mecklenburg Waggonfabrik Güstrow built twelve identical B'Bn4vt-Mallets which handled almost all traffic for the NWE during the first ten years of operation. Unfortunately, the military field railways confiscated six locomotives at the beginning of the First World War which were all lost. As a result, the railroad re-numbered the remaining six locomotives in 1918. They now carried the numbers 11 to 16. One locomotive (NWE 12, ex 20) was severely damaged on July 6th 1927 in the Thumkuhlen-valley near Wernigerode when it fell down a high embankment. She was dismantled right on the spot. Thus only five locomotives remained. In 1949, these received Deutsche Reichsbahn (German State Railway) running numbers 99 5901 to 99 5905. They were transferred to the Selketal railway in 1956 since there was a shortage of powered units and because the first new class 99.72 locomotives were being delivered to Wernigerode
