1005 4-6-2 at Steam Locomotive Museum Finland
Title:  1005 4-6-2 at Steam Locomotive Museum Finland
Description:  Originally the 1005 was built for coal, but like some of her sisters she was burning birch logs most of the year 1945 after the war. At that time her slim coal chimney was replaced by the fat log chimney. But the 1005 was the only Hr1 class locomotive that was ever altered for burning oil. For a while oil price was low when compared to coal. So the 1005 was burning oil for two years from february 1948 to february 1950. The 1005 was involved in the Kuurila crash in 1957: The 1005 was pulling the P64 express from north to Helsinki. Between Kuurila and Iittala she hit the north bound MP41 express hauled by a Dm4 diesel motor car. The delicate motor car was splattered into splinters and 28 people were killed and 19 injured. The 1005 suffered considerably less damage. She was put back on the track and taken to Hyvinkää for reparation.

1800 4-6-4T at Steam Locomotive Museum Finland
Title:  1800 4-6-4T at Steam Locomotive Museum Finland
Description:  The Finnish VR Class Pr2, nicknamed "Henschel", was a passenger tank class ordered from the Henschel & Son locomotive workshops by the Estonia State Railways in the spring 1939 and completed in 1941. The outbreak of the Second World War prevented their delivery to Estonia, but at least a few of these engines did manage to operate in Latvia in 1942. These engines became superfluous, because the Germans were converting the Baltic tracks to standard gauge, and so Finland could purchase these four engines. They were classified Pr2 and numbered 1800–1803 after their arrival in December 1942.
