Главная страница Etat Belge type Flamme 1E-h4

In 1915 the Russian Railway Delegation travelled to Great Britain,France and USA trying to purchase new locomotives to help the acute motive power shortage in Russian Railways. In France the Belgian Government in exile sold number of at that moment useless ( locomotives were too heavy to be used on Paris-Orleans Railway rails ) heavy 1E-h4 locomotives to Russia. At least the following locomotives were sold with French War Loan to Russia.
