The D53 class were a development of the D50 class, originally incorporating an enlarged Belpaire firebox, tapered boiler, and modified wheels and running gear. During construction, the decision was made to superheat all the class, with all subsequent locomotives built as superheated, and locomotives already constructed were later upgraded. They carried three varieties of tender; original, "Wampu" and turret tenders.
