Prototype: The first steam locomotives of the later series 58.10-40 were built in 1917 as the Prussian G 12 in the Henschel works. By 1924, almost 1,500 examples had been built by various locomotive factories for the Prussian, Baden, Württemberg and Saxon railways. The approx. 1,550 hp locomotives formed the backbone of heavy goods traffic until the mid-1930s.

After the Second World War, steam locomotives from the 58 series were found in both German states. In the area of ??the Deutsche Bundesbahn, these locomotives could be dispensed with very quickly and they were decommissioned by the end of the 1950s. The Deutsche Reichsbahn, on the other hand, was dependent on their service for a long time. Some specimens underwent a makeover in the 1960s, but they were still used in their original design until the mid-1970s. Especially the Bw Aue/Sachs became known. through the last operations of the 58 series in 1976.
Arnold was founded in 1906 in Nuremberg by the managing director of the same name, Karl Arnold. The company was mainly known for producing tin toys in N gauge. During the Second World War, many of the production facilities in Nuremberg were destroyed.

In 1997, the Arnold company was taken over by the Italian competitor Rivarossi. This was followed in 2004 by the acquisition of shares in Rivarossi by Hornby PLC. acquired shares in Rivarossi and thus, among other things, the Arnold brand name and the moulds. The development of the models has always taken place in England, Italy, Spain and Germany.
