After the end of the war, 113 locomotives remained in Austria. Improvements were made to many engines, including in part the replacement of the tub-style tender with cabins to create a train driver’s compartment. Towards the end of the steam locomotive era individual deviations to the livery were carried out on some class 52s which were initiated by the train personnel. The Strasshof an der Nordbahn train transport had some “colourful” locomotives in their boiler house which were relatively typical for the time. The last models were taken out of service in 1976, and thus were some of the last steam locomotives to run on normal-gauge ÖBB tracks.
