475.179 - OLOMNOUC TO UNICOV

475.179 OLOMOUC NATIONAL RAIL DAY

September 25, 2010. 475.179 was one of ther stars on the National Rail Day held at Olomouc, Czech Republic. She did a service run to Unicov with 534.0432 and the photos below were taken:

The passenger train locomotive class 475.1 (2'D1'h2) "Slechticna" were 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), 111 ( Iron Monument Club Plzen, serviceable, 179 (Decin), serviceable, 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).

A few measures:

Driving wheel diameter 1750 mm
Steam pressure 16 Bar
Cylinder dimensions 570 mm diamater, 680 mm stroke until no. 070, then 530 mm
Grate area 4.34 square meters
Fire box heating surface 24,2 sq. meters
Total water side heating area 201.8 sq. meters
Superheater area 63 sq. meters
Weight in working order 100-102,6 t
Adhesive weight 60,6 - 66,4 t
Tractive effort max. 160 kN
Max. speed 100 km/h (50 km/h backwards)
Tender water capacity 32 tons
Tender coal capacity 9 or 11,2 tons (differing data)
Tender weight in working order 69 tons
Total wheelbase locomotive with tender 20720 mm
Overall length locomotive with tender 24800 mm
Working weight locomotive with tender 168.6 tons
Power output (unknown at which speed etc.) 1480 kW

The engine has, in principle, the same boiler as class 556. However, class 556 has 18 Bar, not 16 Bar, maximum pressure.
