The difference between the V 60 (260) and V 60.1 (261) series is the higher friction load of the class 261. These engines, which could be found at almost all German shunting stations, were able to reach a maximum speed of 30 km/h, and 60 km/h in mainline operation in shunting mode. As of 1st October 1987, the series designation was changed to 360 or 361, and the engines were downgraded to small locomotives. This allowed them to be operated by small locomotive operators instead of the better-paid traction unit drivers. Those locomotives equipped with radio remote control and automatic shunting coupling from 1988 were renamed as class 364 or 365.
