It was obligatory to equip it with wear buffer planks, which made it possible to attach central buffer couplings without any problems. The tried-and-tested bogies of the 150 were eliminated and new ones made of welded lightweight steel were constructed. The box support and wheel set guidance by lemniscate links could be taken over from the 103 series. The proven rubber ring spring drive was retained.
The traction motor voltage was now controlled by a 29-stage high-voltage switchgear with thyristor load switches. The first was on 21 November 1972 delivered the 151 001.By 1977, 170 machines had been built at Krupp, Henschel, Krauss-Maffei, AEG, Siemens and BBC, which were initially used throughout Germany and in some cases even in front of passenger trains. Road numbers 151 089-122 had, and in some cases still NOCH an automatic coupler ("Unicupler") and for many years ran mostly in double traction pulling heavy ore trains on the Hamburg - Beddingen (5,700 t), Venlo - Dillingen (5,130 t) and Moers routes - Linz (3,220 t).
After only accident-related locomotives had been phased out until 2009, there were large numbers of decommissioning after the economic and financial crisis, so that the number of six-axle locomotives used by the DB in 2019 had shrunk to eight units with automatic couplers. But many 151s have found a new field of activity in recent years with private transport companies such as Bayernbahn (5 units), EGP (6 units), Hector Rail (10 units), HSL (3 units), Lokomotion (4 units). , Saar Rail (2 copies) and SRI (4 copies).

According to EU Directive 2009/48/EC, model trains/cars are not suitable for children under the age of 15. Particular danger for children up to 3 years of age due to small parts that can be swallowed. In the interest of standardization, the proven traction motors of the 110 and 140 series were used, but completely new methods of insulation a.
