Besides military equipment,tanks,aircraft,spacecraft from Russia.This is one of my favourite locomotives.When it comes to train discussion,some of them little know about Russian trains,Tho I’m one of the few railfans who really loves Eastern Block Locomotives especially Russia.
Meet the 2-10-0 ,1520mm(Russian Gauge) L Class Steam Locomotive or P32(P stands for Victory) by factory designation,designed by Lev Sergeyevich Lebedyansky(1898-1968) and Sergey Syromyatnikov(1891-1951).Produced in 1945-1955,one of the massive and tallest steam locomotive in Soviet Union(Modern Day Russia).it was primarily used for freight but able to pull passenger cars.It was retired in late 1970s when diesel and electric locomotives began to take over the Soviet/Russian Rail network,surviving models still in use for tourism and freight in Russia and Ukraine.
