In Latvia there are two normal ("russian") gauge locomotives restored. One is displayed in the Latvian Railway Musseum in Riga, the other one is used for some heritage rides.

L-5225

There are also two narrow gauge lines with steam locomotives. The first one is a real line Gulbene-Alūksne which uses diesel locomotives in daily service, but the steam locomotive is used at least once a year on the "Bānīša" day (a celebration for this line)

KCh-332

And the second narrow gauge line is a touristic attraction in Ventspils city
They have two steam locomotives from the M1 series.

M1-631

611 close ups through Manassas Station, 6/7/15. A lot of us fans were silently thanking the fact that she had to stop outside the station where we were standing to wait for Regional 156 to make its stop first.

The most numerous and/or widespread locomotives

BR52 "Kriegslokomotive" ("the war locomotive")

Part 1

Designed in 1942 as simplified version of pre-war BR50 class. Made almost entirely of steel, without expensive non-ferrous metals. Used mostly on the Eastern Front. Between 1942 and 1945 cca 6700 pieces were built in 13 factories in 3rd Reich and all over the occupied Europe.

After WWII numerous countries used them, often with domestic modifications:

Typical BR52 of postwar West German railways:

BR52 of East German railways (DR). Note the visible modifications due to reconstruction in late 1960s.

More to come soon.

200 of those were ordered to various belgian locomotive builders in 1943.
Retarding maneuvers ensured that at the end of the conflict, none were
completed yet. But 100 of them were in various stages of construction, and
have been completed in the next two years. They were delivered to the
belgian railways, where they became type 26, numbered 26.001 to 26.100.
They lasted some 15 years, mainly hauling heavy freight traffic of coal and
iron ore. None of them were preserved. Later on, an enthusiast's group
recovered a similar machine from Poland and restored it in SNCB state and
livery : http://www.pfttsp.be/index.php?optio...899&Itemid=158

This loco has a rich history:

1943 - built in BW Linz (Austria) as 52-3554;
1945 - in Soviet zone in Austria;
1948.12.03 - in Czechoslovakian railways (CSD);
1951.02.01 - in USSR (military reserve) as ТЭ-3554. Rebuilt to Soviet standarts (see below for info);
1963 - sold to Poland, rebuilt again to Polish variant, served in industrial railways as Ty2-3554;
1992- in Belgium.

BR52 "Kriegslokomotive" ("the war locomotive")

Part 2

After WWII most of BR52s were left in east of Germany. Many of them went to USSR due to war reparations (just as 52-3554 mentioned above). They saw limited service in Soviet railways, as most of them were stored in reserve near western borders of the Soviet Union - like in Kaliningrad Oblast (former Koenigsberg):

Many of them were still operational in early 1990s.

Spain: the Verraco

First (now there's another) Tourist train "Camino de Santiago" (Way of St. James).

Its engine is a "Verraco" (male boar) Renfe 040-2184 497 kW with 792 factory number of Métallurgiques Ateliers de Tubize (Belgium), the oldest in circulation in Iberian gauge. It was supplied by the exporting company Valère Mabille-Mariemont (Belgium), for the company Almansa-Valencia-Tarragona (AVT 123) in 1891; That same year North (North 2723) absorbed the AVT so that was circulating in Asturias and Galicia to its low in 1969. Since 1999 Avenfer (Association of Friends of Railway from Venta de Baños) worked in restoration and design of four passenger cars from the fifties (series 5000 and 6000: B7R-6214, B7R-6215, B7R-B8R-6256 and 5043) in the workshop of Venta de Banñs. But, given the complexity of the task, they requested assistance for the repair of the boiler in the ARMF Lleida, jobs that lasted 14 months.









Commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the train to Venta de Baños (Palencia) with its neighbors dressed with period costumes:

The Verraco on movie

This same engine: the Verraco (male boar), the oldest steam locomotive in operation in Iberian gauge in Spain, traveled to Sergorbe (Castellón) for shooting the Hungarian film "The Promise," which also was shot in Malta.
Now they are with the work of preparation and testing, and filming will be between 20 and 24 October.
