The Okularnyk or Brejlovec is probably the best known Czechoslovakian locomotives that came in many different types and flavours. The class 753 was mostly used with passenger trains that needed steam heating, then later were withdrawn to local freight train duty. Eventually most of them were rebuilt as classes 750 and 756, only this museum locomotive remained. This is the firefighting train (can we call it a fire engine?) that is compulsory behind steamers. There seems to be a trend for these trains to appear more like a standard freight train nowadays, which is certainly something I am really happy for. More Okularnyk photos can be found here, and more of firefighting trains here.
