b-2023 Russian locomotive.

 One of the oldest locomotives in Russia, being built

in 1897 by Kolomna Works for the Vladikavkaz.

 It was used until the mid-1980’s in Grozny.



The Russian railway system merged nearly 20 major railway lines in the second half of the 19th century. Goods were transported in special sealed packages or even sealed wagons. The arrival of the railways diverted huge quantities of goods away from the smaller flax exporting ports in favour of the direct overland transportation to Germany. Seals have been found throughout the UK but not in any great number.

   The principal commodities for the export trade via St Petersburg were iron, copper, hemp, first, second and third sort flax, codilla, cordage, tallow and tallow candles, wax and wax candles, soap, potash, hemp seed oil, linseed oil, isinglass, tobacco leaves, horse hair, treacle, bristles, Muscovy leather, sole leather, tar, pitch, linen yarn, mats, feathers and down, wool, caviar, tea, hops, horsetails, hare skins, Morocco bear skins, calve skins, deals, spars, quills, hats, ox and deer tongues, glass of different kinds, sailcloth, ravenduck, drillings, different kinds of napkin cloth, wheat, rye, linseed, flems, linen of different sorts, ox and cow horns and bones, and other lesser goods.
