European steam engines

On this page you find pictures of steam engines from various European countries. Most (all?) are of engines in ordinary service, pictured in the years 1968 to 1971. Below you find a small picture with accompanying text. If you click on the picture, you see it alone, full screen. The pictures are optimized for 800*600 pixels. If your screen is set to a lower resolution, you may have to scroll to see everything.

Back to the Swedish steam engines!

Wheel arrangement, refers to engine and tender combined. If only one weight is given this is weight in service for engine alone. Length refers to total length with tender. Tender type may vary within class. I give (hopefully) data for the engine on the picture.
