Remarks & Notes 
The E2 class was used for all types of traffic and in all parts of Sweden. The light axle load meant that they could be used on minor lines and industrial railways, extending their use after mainline steam operations had been reduced. The E2 class locomotives remained in daily service until 31 March 1972, the last day of regular steam operations on SJ. Most were then placed in the strategic reserve, where they remained until 1990, and many have been preserved. The E2 #979 is preserved on the Skanska Järnvägar in the southern part of Sweden.
