The Steam Locomotive
Over 3,300 units built, it is still an icon today for passenger service: the Prussian P8. The variant with a tub-style tender, marvelous. When it took over these locomotives, the German Federal Railroad (DB) not only replaced the smoke deflectors (with the Witte design), it also equipped a large number with this modern tender design. Completely new tooling for the tender constructed of metal, produced with die-cast zinc techniques and highly detailed, a work of art by itself.
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 38.10-40 steam locomotive with a tub-style tender and with Witte smoke deflectors and 3 boiler domes (steam feeder dome, sand dome, steam dome). Former Prussian P8.
