The fort Aalen was a Roman military camp, which was built in the 2nd century near the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and today partly built over in the corridor Maueräcker on the territory of the district town of Aalen in the Ostalbkreis in Baden-Württemberg. As the largest garrison on the Rhaetian Limes, the fort built for an elite mounted unit (Ala miliaria) has a special significance. For research, the sixteen ascertainable epigraphic testimonies are also of extremely high historical value. Today's city name Aalen could be traced back to the Latin word Ala.

The steam locomotives of Class 23 were German passenger train locomotives developed in the 1950s for the Deutsche Bundesbahn. They had a 2-6-2 wheel arrangement and were equipped with Class 2'2' T 31 tenders. They were designed to replace the once ubiquitous Prussian P 8 engines that had been built between 1908 and 1924 and, in their day, were the most numerous post-war replacement class.
