  • Axle: E

  • First year: 1922/27
  • Manufacturer: Nohab, Schwarzkopff, Henschel
  • Ex CFOA Rly, Ex KPEV G10

The 55001 are plain Prussian G10. The first G10 in Turkey were former KPEV engines transferred during World War 1 or very soon after. Subsequently the CFOA and then TCDD continued to order them because this engine suited very well the need of the railway. The 55001 were used until the 1980's and then scrapped upon the arrival of the diesel engines.
