Impressive down to the Details
The popularity and recognition of the technology in the Prussian P8 is reflected in the fact that about 300 units were still in use in Era IV after 1968. Right up to the end of regular steam operation, they were representatives of this mode of propulsion that could still be experienced often. The individual models differ significantly in detail from each other due to technical changes during the locomotives' long building period and also due to later overhauls and conversions during the operating period of these locomotives. This is the special charm of each individual locomotive of this class for every steam locomotive fan.
