The steam locomotive 498.1, also known as the "Albatros", is rightfully considered a legend. The best engineering work from clever heads at Skoda machinery, where it was born as an improvement over 498.0, and also lifetime holder of local steam-powered speed record.
The magical and mysterious world of steam engines, which can be seen during nostalgic or historical events, is always dominated by the presence of legendary Albatros. In the old days, this was the top-notch modern steam locomotive, which achieved the speed of 162 kph during test runs, and faithfully served to heavy passenger express trains in Czechoslovakia. These days, it's hard to imagine the feeling people had when 114 tons of steel, smoke, and steam just passed by with 120 kph on the speedometer. It's still fascinating now, back then - it must have been completely astonishing.
