Info about the original

The six VT137 002, 005, 006, 007, 012 and 013 units from the first delivery series that were all repaired stood on DR territory. The VT137 122 and 132 from the more powerful motorised series also re-entered the inventory but the damaged VT37 044 was rejected. The situation was similar with regard to the trailer cars. 16 vehicles from both ranges were in service there. The railcars that remained with DR continued to travel from Zittau in Upper Lusatia until the start of the 1960s. Ultimately, the increasingly absent spare parts lead to discontinuation. The last VT 62 quit service in Braunschweig at the end of the 1950s. The trailer cars remained in service with diesel locomotives up until the 1980s. The final combination with a BR 110 locomotive was in operation in the Jerichower network in 1985.
