Like the predecessor of the P 3I, it was the Atlantic-Lokomotive with internal cylinders and the wheel formula 2’B1 ‘(Achsfolge 2’B1’). P 3 II two-cylinder compound and the main feature of the design was the presence of a disconnected drive to the middle auxiliary axle of the front runner 3-axle bogie. The drive was carried out from two front outer cylinders. In the normal position, it was raised to 30mm from the rail head. It was used and entered into action / at will and necessity / when starting off and moving on steep slopes. Another feature of the P 3II is balancing weights for balancing the moving parts of the main steam engine installed on both sides of the ash pan, which were moved, driven by special drawbars.
In 1902, the locomotive was reconstructed, and the auxiliary drive and balancers were removed. The preliminary plan of the German Reichsbane provided for reclassification to BR 14 121.
It was written off in 1924.
