Manufacturing of a new boiler for the narrow-gauge locomotive LKM Gr-185/1948

Locomotives of Gr Series, manufactured in the German Karl Marx factory (former Orenstein & Koppel Company) in Babelsberg, were during the post-war years delivered to the Soviet Union.

For the GR-185 locomotive operated by the Children Railway in Rostov on the Don River we manufactured a new boiler, according to the delivered documentation and amendatory requests. The boiler should be partially rebuild, but by keeping the outer dimensions. From the original parts we used only the regulator and the hemispherical cover of steam dome. The all-welded steel boiler has a troughed bottom ring. To the boiler we delivered a completely new smoke-box inclusive the door, closing, extinction, air blower and delivery pipes. Part of the delivery was a new gauge glass and test cocks, two-part furnace door, fire bars holders, ash bunker bolts and boiler funnels according to the user’s demands. The inner combustion chamber and box part of the boiler were manufactured according the original shapes and dimensions with rounded corners. The repair included also a complete overhaul of the inner regulator inside the steam dome and a new designed overheater. The boiler was manufactured and certified according to the EU standard and has the CE mark.
