    100 Years of the P8 Mystique ? Railroad enthusiasts in Germany and Europe have considered the Prussian P8 as one of the most beautiful steam locomotives hands down for the last 100 years. The design for this locomotive quickly proved to be extremely good with a high level of power and remarkable reliability. The immense number of over 3,800 units built from 1906 to 1928 as well as their extraordinary versatility as motive power for passenger, fast passenger, and even for express train service led to remarkably wide use of this locomotive. Numerous locomotive builders took part in the production of this "jack-of-all-trades". The largest number by far of these locomotives built was delivered to the Royal Prussian Railroad Administration (KPEV), but other provincial railroads, foreign railroads, and towards the end of the period in which the P8 was built even the German State Railroad Company (DRG) took delivery of considerable numbers of the locomotive. This finely constructed model reproduces the locomotive as the prototype originally looked immediately after delivery with a box-style tender. At that time the locomotives did not have smoke deflectors on the boiler.
