In 1922 as part of WW 1 reparations numerous locos of this type, gauge 760 mm, were delivered to Kingdom of SHS to state- and industrial railways. Three of them were later bought in Bosnia by the Jesenice Iron Works for its internal transport. They were classified as O-VIII, O-IX and O-XI. In 1988 the Iron Works abandoned the narrow gauge system. The O-VIII pulled solemnly the last train and was put under protection as a museum piece. The O-XI was acquired by the Railway Museum of the SŽ. She is plinthed now as a monument in Zreče. The O-IX was being overhauled at that time, awaiting final assembly. In 1991 the Railway Museum was able to acquire her by means of a swap for scrap. She has been put in working order.
