The popularity and approval of the technology used on the Prussian P8 is reflected in the fact that approximately 300 units were still in use after 1968 in Era IV. This made this locomotive design a frequently encountered representative of this type of propulsion right up to the end of regular steam operation. The individual models differ significantly from each other in details due to technical changes during the many years the locomotives were built. This differentiation is also due to subsequent overhauls and conversions, which resulted in the special charm of each individual locomotive of this class for every steam locomotive fan.
