Title:  German 2-10-0 42 159 "War Locomotive"
Description:  Class 42 "War Locomotive". The class in this case means how many replacable parts should the locomotive recieve some war damage. So 42 means 4200 different parts that can be replaced and that was important in wartime to be able to fix stuff quickly.
