Ex-CSD 524.159 in the CD Muzeum
Title:  Ex-CSD 524.159 in the CD Muzeum
Description:  #524.159 is a Class 524.1 2-10-2T which, surprisingly, would have been used in mixed traffic, particularly on mountainous routes. As with the 434, there was more than one specification that qualified as a 524.1 Class, so I don't know the exact specs of this one (although the museum has some of them, which sound like round figures). It would have, however, a top speed between 55 and 60Km/h, and would have a power rating of either 935kW (1254 horsepower) or 1030kW (1381 horsepower). The museum claims 935kW or 1250 horsepower and 55Km/h for #524.159. These locomotives had a very long production run, like the 434.2 Class, so that may explain why the 524.1 Class also has more than one accepted specification. The 162 locomotives of the 524.1 Class were produced from 1918 until 1943 by CKD and Skoda, and weren't pulled from service until 1980, making them some of the last mainline steam locomotives in Czechoslovakia. Supposedly #524.159 was built by CKD in 1929, but the museum doesn't give a date of retirement.
