CFR 077 at Sibiu Steam Locomotive Museum

CFR 077 is part of a batch of 42 locomotives designed and delivered to CFR by the A.G. Maffei and Hanomag (Hannoversche Machinenbau AG) factories between 1911 and 1915. 40 Ct-n2 locomotives of this type were delivered between 1914 and 1915. These locos were used to pull passenger, freight and mixed trains on short secondary lines. They were retired from service after 1968. CFR 077 was retired at Ploiesti in 1971 and transfered to the museum in Bucuresti.

ID: CFR 077

The CFR 077 steam locomotive is now on display in the Sibiu steam locomotive museum, coupled to the CFR WMA 65.4 steam crane. It has not been used for many years but it is in a fairly good shape (not operational, however).
