The passenger train locomotive class 475.1 (2'D1'h2) "Slechticna"
This engine was constructed for medium heavy passenger service in hilly areas with a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Skoda built the first engine in 1947. This engine was the first one to get the new type of boiler most steam engines constructed after WW II were equipped with: A long combustion chamber, thermosiphon, two additional water pipes through the firebox, Kylchap double blast pipes, Friedman exhaust steam injector, mechanical stoker, rocking grate and air operated cutoff adjustment. The boiler middle is at 3300 millimeter above the rails. The engine uses Trofimoff- valves. There is a stoker in the tender type 932.3. Part of these engines got roller bearings in all axles and rods. The 475.1 had a fast acceleration with its small wheels, and could pull a lot, due to its four axles and 60 tons adhesive weight.
The last 25 engines built by Skoda in 1951 were delivered to North Korea as war aid. In North Korea they had their original Czech numbers 475.1148 - 1172.
Delivery to the CSD: 475,101-106 in 1947, 107 - 161 in 1948, 162 - 182 in 1949, 183 - 199 and 1100 - 1142 in 1950, 1143 - 1147 in 1959. All were built by Skoda.
Preserved engines: 475.101 (Brno), serviceable, 111 ( Iron Monument Club Plzen , serviceable, 179 (Decin), servcieable, 1142 (Prerov, serviceable UNTIL MARCH 29, 2003) , 475.196 (Vrutky, Slovakia), in service again since 15 July 1992, 475.1130(Vrutky, Slovakia, parts engine for 475,196).
In 1971, these engines pulled most of the local trains around Cheb, Plzen, Chomutov, Decin, Liberec, Hradec Kralove.
