OH! You mean the wheels on the Locomotive.

There seems to be some resemblance between this design and that of the Chinese forest railway locomotives. Probably no coincidence.

Nice shot! To answer the above question: the Chinese C2 )-8-0 design was almost a direct copy of this locomotive the Soviet Kp4. There were some improvements and alot of variations with the Chinese locomotives (including some with roller bearings!) but the basic designs and dimensions are from the Kp4.

Thewiz, you are right. In the 50s, some of these locomotives were sent to China & North Korea narrow gauge (762 mm) railroads. After that in 80s in China (Harbin city) were produced copies of such prototype (P24).

Locomotives, issued according to the design of a steam locomotive "P24" are one of the most widespread in the world. In the USSR and abroad there was made more than 5100 locomotives of such class in different versions. They worked on the narrow gauge railways of USSR, Hungary, China, Mongolia, Poland, Czechoslovakia and North Korea. This is the narrow-gauge locomotives massive series ever made ​​in the world. China built similar locomotives until 1987.

Nice photo. However according to Whyte's Classification system, in the U.S.A the wheel arrangement you show here will be an 0-8-0. Thanks for posting!
