Even more steam engines for era 2!

All infos about all new engine models of the second era and the original engines.

Lynx – Series QJ of China Railways

chinese steam locomotive

What looks like a variant of the SZD П36 coloured in black, in reality is a proprietary development from China. The first prototype was built in 1956. The engines had the latest technology on board, such as a mechanical stoker and feed-water preheating. Once another 41 prototypes were completed, serial production began in 1964. The engine proved so successful that until 1988 more than 4,700 units were produced.

Impressive: the engines remained in active service of the state railway until 2005. Private railway companies continue to use them to this day.
