Russian P36 "General" steam locomotive, restored:



This locomotive was built in 1955, retired in 1983, and in 1984 was installed as memorial near the locomotive shed.
In March it was dismounted, restored and repaired.

Absolutely awesome, a gorgeous steam dragon if I ever saw one.

Agreed.
The reason why I've purchased BR.01 locomotives was that it looked like P36 for me, with its steam deflectors...

What's the odd signal tone in П36's video? :?:
(I don't mean the locomotive's steam whistle.)

Pneumatic typhon
You can notice it near the headlight, on the top:

Very interesting! :!:

In Germany only diesel and electric locomotives, MU's and cab cars are equipped with tyfons. And they have a clearly higher and fuller sound.
On steam locomotives the steam whistle is used instead.

Yes, you are right. Usually steam locomotives were equipped by whistle.
But the P36 steam locomotives were equipped also by pneumatic typhon T9 (120 Hz, 125 dB) - the same was used on the VL-serie electric locomotives, TEP-60, 2TE-116, TEM-2 diesels.

How much space is needed for tyfon and pneumatic devices?
Will it fit into the engine bay of something like a Lada Niva or so? Or is additional space needed?

And what about American style locomotive air horns? Are they available, too? And how much space do they need?
