In 1972, the Deutsche Reichsbahn in the former GDR initially fitted three units of the 110 series with a 1,200 hp diesel engine as an experiment, which also proved to be excellent in express train service. Like other components, the fluid transmission was adapted accordingly. Between 1981 and 1990 there were further conversions (about 500 locomotives) to 1,200 hp (883 kW) at Raw Stendal using the 12 KVD 18/21 AL-4 and AL-5 engines. These locomotives were designated as the 112 series.
