Product Description

Steam Locomotive T8 KPEV DC

After the 'Eisenbahnbau- und Betriebsordnung' ('Act for the Construction and Operations of Railways') also permitted a maximum speed of 50 kph on branch lines from 4th November 1904, several railway divisions requested a C-coupled tender locomotive which was also capable of achieving this speed. In 1902, such a locomotive had been rejected in view of the T 12, which was at the development stage. The chief engineer and advocate of super heated steam Robert Garbe planned a universal locomotive which could be used both as for passenger and for freight trains. Linke-Hofmann in Breslau was commissioned with the development of the design, from whose factory halls the first Prussian T 8 engines then came in 1908. The large wheels and the lack of mass compensation made the locomotive judder at high speeds, which led to corresponding nicknames such as &quot, boneshaker&quot, . Another blunder was the much too high weight, which prevented its use on branch lines de facto. Due to its good acceleration, however, the T 8 was to provide good service on suburban lines in Berlin.
