Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Prussian G 12 was a 2-10-0 goods train locomotive with the Prussian state railways (Preußische Staatseisenbahnen). It was built because it had been shown during the First World War that it was a great disadvantage, from a servicing and maintenance point of view, for each state railway to have its own locomotive classes with no standardization. In addition, the military railways needed a fast, powerful, goods train locomotive, that did not, however, have a high axle load. The G 12 was based on the Prussian G 12.1 and a 2-10-0 locomotive built for the Imperial Ottoman Department for Military Railways (Kaiserlich Ottomanische Generaldirektion der Militäreisenbahnen or C.F.O.A.) by Henschel (see Prussian G 12 (C.F.O.A)). The locomotives differed in several points from earlier principles for Prussian locomotive design. Firstly they had a continuous bar frame and a wide, outer, Belpaire firebox located above the frame with a large grate area.
