About The Steam Engine TY23
Up until 1939 the TY23 was the main steam engine used for hauling heavy goods - mostly coal. Though a newer engine was ordered to replace it ,the TY23 operated until 1979.
Initial production of the TY23 was done in Germany and Belgium. In later years, production was moved to Poland with factories such as Fablok, Parowoz and Cegielski.
The TY23 engine was very popular among train crews. It was a sturdy engine and when accidents occurred, the survival rate of people on the floor plate was high.
