Prototype information

Historical Background The purchasing policy for steam locomotives formed a large gap on the Prussian State Railways at the end of the 19th / beginning of the 20th century. On December 31, 1940, the roster still hosted road numbers 17 039, 097, 102, 107, and 120. After the end of World War II, there were probably no more S 10 locomotives running in Germany. In the West Zones, road numbers 17 039 and 102 were retired on September 20, 1948. In the area of the DR in the GDR (East Germany) road number 17 107 remained stored in the Berlin District and was disposed of on February 15, 1951. Road number 17 120 found itself on the Polish State Railroad after the end of the war, was given a new road number there of Pk1-24 and was finally retired on February 28, 1952. Road number 17 097 went to Soviet Russia as war reparations, probably remained stored on the Lithuanian standard gauge network, and was retired in February of 1951. Road Number 17 008 Road number 17 008 can be viewed in the German Technology Museum in Berlin as the sole preserved unit of the class 17.0. Road number 17 008 was delivered on February 3, 1912 by BMAG (Berlin Mechanical Engineering, Inc., formerly Schwartzkopff) with builder number 4760 to the Breslau District as road number S 10 1008 Bsl. There this locomotive with nine other units hauled mostly express trains in the direction of Upper Silesia. Around 1924/25, this unit, now designated as road number 17 008 went to the Mainz District, where it was based at Mainz and was used chiefly on the Rhine routes.

 Eventually, it was given a place of honor on March 11 of the anniversary year of 1935 (100 Years of German Railroading) in the Berlin Transportation and Engineering Museum in the former Berlin-Hamburg Line Station, even on electrically driven rollers. After World War II, the museum was not open to the public for a long time due to the special status of railroading in West Berlin. This was because the German State Railroad (DR) of the GDR (East Germany) also ran railroad operations in the West Sectors of Berlin and refused any access to all trackage by outsiders, except of course the stations and their platforms. It was not until 1984 with the takeover of the S-Bahn by the West Berlin Senate that ownership of the shutdown museum was acquired by the West. Sometime later, road number 17 008 was woken from its "Sleeping Beauty sleep" and transported on a depressed floor semi rig to the Neukölln Station and then moved on its own wheels across the Ringbahn or Ring Line to the Anhalt Freight Station. Since October of 1987, it has enriched the German Technology Museum (until 1996 the Museum for Transportation and Technology) on the grounds of the former maintenance facility for the Berlin Anhalt Station, also here ready for demonstration on rollers.
