Russian War Railways 0-6-0 Locomotives in Russia

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 1 (Locobase 5044)

Very similar to the engines described under 1613, but instead of heading to Poland (and winding up in Turkey), these engines were destined for Russia. It's surprising to see the amount of overhang permitted on locomotives that would operate on rough, curving track.

Locobase does know how many, if any, actually made the trip to Russia before that monarchy's collapse in early 1917.
