The Aalen Castell was a Roman military camp that was built in the 2nd century close to the Obergermanic-Rate Limes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is now partly built into the Maueräcker hall in the area of the district town of Aalen in the Ostalbkreis in Baden-Württemberg. As the largest garrison on Rätische Limes, the castle, which was built for a mounted elite unit (Ala Miliaria), is of particular importance. For research, the sixteen determinable epigraphic evidence of extremely high historical value is also. Today's city name Aalen could be due to the Latin word ala.

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.
