First locomotive of 7 was delivered in 1935, and this locomotive got the name "Dovregubben" ("The Dovre Giant"). Class 49 was constructed for trains in the steepest parts of the Dovremountain Railwayline. The locomotive had overdimentioned power, and was intended for extreme curves. Some statistics for the first delivered class 49: Total lenght: 22000 mm. Four sylinders. Drivewheeldiameter: 1530 mm. Total power of 2600 HP. Total weight: 151,5 Tons. Except for one, 49C 470, all of them are now gone for ever.
