Looks to be a somewhat unloved P8 plinthed at Böblingen-Hulb, anyone know much about it?
A quick search has given this : 38 3650/038 650-8 Borsig 11419/1922
It would be nice if such an iconic loco could have a better place to live.
Maybe one day - but at least it still exists to allow us to dream of a better future.
At least it's in better condition than the collection at Falkenberg.

If you've got a few hours/days to kill, this website lists a lot of preserved German steam locos. Their in locations are helpfully added on to Google Maps as well. They also have a few other countries being added as well. I don't know how comprehensive it is, but it certainly helped me discover a loco that I struggled to find any mention of for 10 years.
Gosh, I never thought I'd work out where my picture of a P8 was taken, until I saw the same building in the background of your photo.
We were staying in the caravan site on the other side of the road, in I think 1973.
