Caption - Czechoslovakian Railways (CKD) 3-cyliner 4-8-4T 477.035 is seen at Ceska Lipa in February 1976. These impressive machines were technically very advanced and were used on passenger and freight duties. This loco was delivered in 1951 and part of a batch of 38 engines. A further 22 locos were delivered in 1955. They are amongst my favourite locos with high pitched boiler and slab sided tanks. It had been a very cold visit to this mountainous area and watching these magnificent locos at work was a real treat.
