With its four coupled axles, its design made the Prussian P 10 particularly suitable for demanding tracks through the Central Uplands. Later, it even pulled express and fast trains over the mountain ranges.
The P 10 (class 39) marks the end of the development of passenger locomotives in Prussia. At the same time, it is considered to be the transition to the standard locomotives of the Deutsche Reichsbahn. With their three-cylinder engines, these locomotives were among the most powerful passenger locomotives built by the German state railroads and were still being procured by the Deutsche Reichsbahn. By 1924, 260 locomotives had been built. The last three vehicles were taken out of service in 1967. Today, only two machines still exist.
The locomotive 39 230 survived because it served as a crane test weight in the Aw Offenburg from 1973 to 1984. It was ultimately refurbished for the anniversary of "150 years of railroads in Germany" in 1985. (loan by the DB Museum)
