Model: The locomotive has a digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. Dual headlights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The smoke unit contact will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The 72270 smoke unit can be installed in the locomotive. The flickering of the fire can be controlled digitally. In addition, the cab lighting can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16. Protective piston rod sleeves, brake hoses, and prototype couplers are included. Length over the buffers approximately 21.3 cm / 8-3/8.

A Locomotive with a Unique History
This class 38.10-40 with builder number 3676 and built in 1921 achieved many years of service to enter the history of German railroad technology in 1951 as the legendary experimental locomotive, road number 78 1001.As genuine new tooling, road number 38 2919 is presented at the end of its service life in 1950 based at Regensburg and realized for the first time as a M?rklin H0 model. The front of the locomotive is prototypically on target with the DRB lanterns typical for early Era III and small Wagner smoke deflectors. The arrangement of the boiler fittings with the steam dome, sand box, and feed water purifier is modelled as exactly as possible from the prototype. This also applies to the fine spoked wheelsets on the locomotive and tender. The mostly metal construction provides very good running characteristics for the model and its impressive pulling power is thanks to a powerful motor mounted in the boiler.Even if the P 8 with over 3,900 units is one of the most successful locomotives in railroad history and resulted in many railroad models, this class 38 is a must on every model railroad layout.
