Poland - Ol49-111 Locomotive
OL49-111 Driving Steam Locomotive.
Sent by przygodanahelu from Poland.
This is from Wikipedia : PKP class Ol49 was a class of steam engine used in Poland by the PKP. A total of 116 were built between 1951 and 1954, 112 for the PKP and four for export to North Korea, by Fablok in Chrzanow.
They replaced the older Ok1 and Ok22.
Several examples are still in use, based out of Wolsztyn, while others have been mounted at various locations across Poland. At least one example has been exported for preservation and can be found in Belgium.
