Product Description

"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 038.10-40 steam locomotive with a tub-style tender, with Witte smoke deflectors and 2 boiler domes (steam dome, sand dome). Former Prussian P8. 

Model: The locomotive has a frame, superstructure, tender, and applied parts constructed mostly of metal. This is a highly detailed model with many separately applied parts and a detailed engineer's cab. The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder, controlled high efficiency propulsion, and a sound generator with operating sounds synchronized with the wheels as well as extensive sound functions. It can be operated with AC power, DC power, Märklin Digital, or DCC. 3 axles powered. The locomotive has a built-in smoke unit with smoke exhaust and cylinder steam synchronized with the wheels. The triple headlights on the locomotive and the tender have a light color correct for the era and change over with the direction of travel. The headlights and the smoke generator will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The lighting is maintenance-free, warm white LEDs. The locomotive has engine cab lights, firebox lights, and running gear lights. The special light function is a Christmas tree with LED lighting that can be controlled digitally. The locomotive whistles "O Tannenbaum" as a special sound function. The locomotive has a reproduction of the prototype coupler on the front and a claw coupler on the rear of the tender. An accessory package with a reproduction of the prototype coupler, a claw coupler, a figure of a locomotive engineer and a fireman is included with the locomotive.
