Christmas Steam Locomotive with a Tub-Style Tender.

"The lights are burning on the Christmas tree" characterizes marvelously this year's Christmas steam locomotive. A colorful twinkling, shining fir tree on the good old P 8 awakens memories of the "good old times" when steam locomotives were still decorated for Christmas. Who could better represent this than the "Jack-of-all-Trades", a class 38 steam locomotive (former Prussian P 8). It could be found pulling almost all types of trains, had experienced the glory of Prussia, plugged away unnoticed but reliably between the two world wars, and proved itself almost to the end of the steam locomotive era on the German Federal Railroad.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 38.10-40 steam locomotive with a tub-style tender, with Witte smoke deflectors and 2 boiler domes (steam dome, sand dome). Former Prussian P8.
