Locomotive G10 and Tender

The first G10 locomotive came into service in 1910, and was used until 1925.

The Prussian G10 design has an unusual 0-10-0 wheel layout. This example was manufactured by Borsig in 1912 or 1913 and after service with the KPEV (Royal Prussian Railways) arrived in Turkiye as one of an eventual total of 49 “Class 55” locomotives: it is now numbered 55022. This impressive steam engine is 18.9 metres long and weighs 76 tonnes. L: 37.2 m W: 3.10 m H: 4.50 m
