Rail (engine) related images from Europe

With no special agenda, apart that of sharing some rail (engine) related images from Europe I will occasionally post images which belong to my colleagues from Croatia, Serbia and me. Wherever known and possible I will add a detailed description. It would be nice if you can add something from your European collection too.
I will start with Croatia.

It was used in Yugoslavia and is in use today in some of the successor states (Croatia as 2044, Serbia as 645) mainly for the passenger service (not fast intercity).
GT22HW-2 or nicknamed little caravel is an unusual departure from the GT22 Series featured a custom model exclusively built in Yugoslavia due to economic crises after the 1970‘s. Designated GT22HW-2, this compact locomotive was equipped with a turbocharger, Head End Power and EMD Dash 2 Electronics; but due to its compact size, the locomotives were equipped with A-1-A- running gear (considered four-axle units). These locomotives were constructed by Đuro Đaković (Croatia) from February 1981 to August 1984.
Top speed - 125 km/h
Power output - 2330 hp or 1737 kW
Length - 17 meters
AAR wheel arr. - A1A-A1A

My favourite one - JŽ class 33 (JŽ stands for YR - Yugoslavian railways). Only a few of them occasionally run in Serbia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina and Slovenia as part of rail enthusiast trips. Officially not in use since 1976.

Originally it was DRB 52 (Kriegslokomotiven) the most famous steam locomotive produced in Germany before and during the WWII war. DRB 52 also had a simplified version - DRB 50
JŽ 33 starts arriving in 1945 as part of the WWII reparations. In total 341 arrived. The last one delivered in 1947.

Wheel arrangement: 2 – 10 – 0
Top speed: 80 km/h (both directions)
Indicated power: 1,192 kW
Driving wheel diameter: 1400 mm
Leading wheel diameter: 850 mm

The movie, over 1:52 h long.
Clickable index is included, sadly it looks like YouTube does not facilitate links for times greater than one hour yet, so you will have set time yourself from one hour on, if desired (!). Default is 720p (HD) but you can decrees on 480p or lower if you have a problem with your internet speed.


It looks like that Russian rail manufacturers with the help of the west started producing some nice stuff.

The 2ES10 is a two (or three) unit 8 (12) axle electric freight locomotive manufactured for RZD (Russian Railways) by Ural Locomotives, a joint venture between Siemens of Germany and Sinara Group of Russia. During trials in August 2010, a three-section 2ES10 hauled a 9000 tonne train across the Ural (mountains).

UIC classification 2(Bo'Bo')
Length 34m (over couplers)
Top speed 120 km/h
Power output 8,800 kW (11,800 hp)
8,400 kW (11,300 hp) continuous

A few more with a winter setting, this time from Serbia. The red one belongs to Serbian railways and light blue ones to Croatian railways. The photos are taken by Dulevoz, yesterday close to the Croatian – Serbian border. The temperature was -18.

Awesome photos there Medo. I have to remember that it's still 31 degrees here, just after sunset, but for some reason I start shivering looking at those pics.

The images belong to Leteći vlak.

After restoration it went to the testing phase and finally on its first officially run, pulling old passenger carriages. Part of the trip she went coupled with 33-037 (steam engine).
