ΔΚ 1-3 Cail 1981, ΔΚ 4 Cail 1989, ΔΚ 5 SPAP Piraeus Works 1954 Czz 1' n4t
Became SEK ΔΚ 8001 - 8005.

I expected this one to be here already, but it wasn't, so here it is:

Has anyone got any recent stories on this locomotive? Is it still in Diakofto?

ΔΚ 8001 is now in Kalavryta engine shed, in working condition.The loco was rebuilt about two years ago, as after the rebuilding of 1990 it remained out of the Shed and it was damaged (not heavily, but it needed repairs).Now, thanks to lots of people that CARE ABOUT OLD TRAINS, it is covered and working together with a museum carriage.Another one of the class is in Athens Railway Museum, together with an old πλαγιόπορτο, as I can remember, which is propably the only one remaining in Greece.As, for the one that was built in Μ.ΠΡ.,it has the same design with the other ones, and some differences in the inside part (cocpit, engine, etc.).All of the steam locos from ΔΚ class were used up to 1967, when the Decauvilles arrived.The Billards were already there but were not enough for all trains.
