    Very Famous Small Locomotive - One of the most popular German steam locomotives is without a doubt the different versions of the Prussian class T3. Henschel delivered the first unit of an 0-6-0T wet steam locomotive for branch line service to the Prussian State Railways (KPEV). The T 3 impressed people with its maintenance-friendly qualities, sturdiness, and multifaceted uses. For these reasons the KPEV purchased the immense number of 1,345 units from 1881 to 1910, which resulted in a broad distribution of these lovely tank locomotives to cover all of the railroad's needs for this type of motive power. During the provincial railroad period the T3 locomotives were often used for branch line service. Later they were mainly concentrated in switching and transfer work due to the constantly increasing train loads. After the merger of the provincial railroads the T 3 tank locomotives were taken over by the German State Railroad (DRG) and run as the class 89.3. Even the two state railroads in the former divided Germany still had large numbers of these anspruchslosen, durable units on their motive power rosters. In addition, various units went to industrial and privately owned railroads.
