CD 103001-4 in the CD Muzeum
Title:  CD 103001-4 in the CD Muzeum
Description:  Supposedly built out of an old E436 Class electric, this locomotive would have been built sometime in 1927 or 1928 by CKD, in spite of its relatively modern Ceske Drahy markings. Power originally would have been 806Kw (1081 horsepower), although I know know if thats what it puts out now. Originally its top speed would have been 60Km/h, which again for a locomotive this small and this old, which appears to be only a switcher, is rather impressive. I note that this locomotive also lacks a pantograph, in spite of being built originally to run on 1,500 volts DC, which is much more than is typically delivered through a third rail. Any further historical information on this locomotive would be welcome, as Ive been able to find what I have only through piecemeal skimming of Czech websites. As with a lot of locomotives at Luzna, Ill have to dig out my books to properly trace the history back, and even then I may be able to use your help.

Ex-CSD T334.0869 and CD 103001-4 in the CD Muzeum
Title:  Ex-CSD T334.0869 and CD 103001-4 in the CD Muzeum
Description:  #T334.0869 is classified as a T334 Class under the old pre-1988 numbering scheme, and as a Class 710 under the modern system. As most Czech diesels are diesel-electrics, the 710 Class is unusual in that it is a diesel-hydraulic. Power is only 300Kw (402 horsepower), which is another factor making these units obsolete. Although I dont know T3340869s construction date, the 710 Class were built from 1961 to 1973 by CKD, and while old, are still used on CD today, although in smaller and smaller numbers, of course. Originally designed as switchers, and lot of them are now used by private rail construction contractors, and some have been exported to Germany, Hungary, Serbia, and Sweden. Many also were also transferred to ZSSK in Slovakia after 1993. This unit is more or less in the original CSD livery, other than that it doesnt have a red star on the nose.
