The genus T 18 was the last tender locomotive developed for the Prussian state railways. It was originally intended for traffic on Rügen as a replacement for the T 12 and T 10 series. It was created when a locomotive type was designed in 1912, with the fast and passenger trains in areas near the border or in commuter traffic should be transported on shorter routes. The design of a Tenderlokomotive with symmetrical suspension was provided because this could be operated in the same direction and fast reverse drives in contrast to Schlepptender locomotives without the need for rotation on the turntable. Your performance and maximum speed should be about the P 8 correspond. Robert Garbe designed this 2'C2'-tender locomotive for 100km / h with 17 t axle load and had it built at the volcanic works of Szczecin. It was named T 18.
