Normal gauge steam locomotive 20-183 (formerly also SHS 6183) at the train station in Trebnje, Slovenia.
Length: 18.82 m, height: 4.25 m, weight: 66.9 t, max. speed: 55 km/h, water capacity: 20 m³, capacity of coal: 8 t, axle load: 14 t
The locomotive was produced by Rheinische MetallWaaren und Mashinenfabrik Düsseldorf in 1922, serial nr. 526. In 1930s, 14 locomotives of this class arrived in Slovenia from Serbia and pulled trains from Ljubljana to Karlovac, Maribor and Zagreb. They were poorly maintained and unpopular among railway employees so all 14 locomotives were decomissioned before WW2. This locomotive was active in Serbia and arrived in Slovenia after its "retirement". In 1994 it was exhibited at its current position in Trebnje.
