23 023 details on steamloco.info

Story

In Germany this engine was one of its class to be equipped for push/pull traffic. It was one of the first engines of the Stoom Stichting Nederland. Between 1977 and 1984 this locomotive ran many main line excursions. In the latter year it lost its boiler certificate and was put into store. For the 150th anniversary of the Dutch Railways in 1989, 23 023 was given a special permit to participate in the locomotive parades. Together with 41 105 it steamed to Utrecht, was the only steam locomotive to participate in all the parades and then returned under its own power to Rotterdam. At the end of 1992 it was decided to send 23 023 for a major overhaul to Meiningen. Between January and October 1993 this overhaul took place, whereupon the locomotive steamed back to Rotterdam at the head of the Thueringen express. In 2019 the engine was put back on service again after an extensive overhaul.
