Comment: Designed originally in 1911 for faster handling of passenger train service on the Isle of Rügen, the T 18 was the result as one of the most successful German tank locomotives with its symmetrical design with three coupled wheel sets, two trucks, large fuel and water tanks, and a maximum speed of 100 km/h / 62.5 mph in both directions of travel. It had two-cylinder hot steam running gear with externally mounted, horizontal cylinders positioned between the wheel sets of the pilot truck. Propulsion went to the second coupled wheel set and there was a two-axle truck front and rear, each with 40 mm / 1-9/16" of side play. The T 18 had a sturdy frame. The annoying jerks still present on the prototype of 1912 at speeds of more than 60 km/h 37.5 mph were soon reduced by improved mass balancing. The T 18 was therefore authorized for 100 km/h / 62.5 mph despite its relatively small driving wheel diameter of 1,650 mm / 65". By 1927, the DRG rostered all total 460 Prussian (and clones) as well as 20 Württemberg T 18 units as road numbers 78 001-282 and 351-528. In 1935, the Saar units (78 283-328) were added. After nationalization of the Eutin-Lübeck Railroad (ELE) in 1941, the DRG acquired its T 18 units as 78 329 and 330. About 420 units survived in the Western Zones after the end of World War II. After retiring locomotives damaged in the war, the DB still rostered 377 operational units on July 1, 1950, including 32 units on the railroad in Saarland. Since for the near future these units were still needed for years, the DB decided to correct known deficiencies and retrofit better components. Equipping the units with a shuttle train control system began as early as 1951, since the class 78 units with the same maximum speed forward and reverse were ideally suited for this kind of operation. By the end of 1967, more than 120 locomotives were set up for shuttle train operation with indirect control. They were concentrated in the Hamburg, Hannover, Essen, Wuppertal, Frankfurt/Main, and Saarbrücken Districts. The last shuttle train use with class 78 units in the Hamburg area did not end until the fall of 1968. By 1968, the roster on the DB had shrunk to about 50 locomotives. Road number 78 246 at the Rottweil maintenance facility was retired as the last T 18 on December 31, 1974. It now stands at the German Steam Locomotive Museum in Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg. On the DR, the last T 18 left service in 1972. Road number 78 009 of the Dresden Transportation Museum remains as the oldest preserved T 18. Road number 78 468 is still currently operational and has served for many years as an exhibit at the Hamburg History Museum.
