A standard freight locomotive from 1918-1930 (at first made yet like the Austrian class 270). In the  number of 199 pcs (including the  34 reparation pcs after 1945) and after various amendments it departed for main railway lines, later for easier performances like shunting. CSD discarded the class in 1977, the locomotive 434.1100 was saved for the museum. This picture is a livery of the Nexus´s picture - here you can see the original „helicon“ chimney used for the engines up to the 434.1119.
