    This French gigant is one of my favourite steam locomotives. 200 tons and almost 27 meters long i`s a bit more than the P2 ;) Sadly it`s not operational now but hopefully back on track in the future.:)

    Very friendly bunch. I've done a couple of their railtours in the past. The nearest station to their base is it at Koblenz, and they'll happily pick you up from there and take you to Full if you ask.
