Leopold Railway Gun: Motive Power

Hi Gents,

Any info on what kind of locomotive was used to transport the K5(E) Railway gun (Leopold)? What were the other railway cars that were usually in tow with the K5?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Tony!

Although I am not an expert on the topic, it seems much likely that they used the standanrd Kreigslokomotive BR-52 or BR-42 steamlocomotive. Altough maybe its size and weight could have taken two "Kriegloks" instead of just one.

Another question: If there are two Kriegloks, how were they arranged? One in front and the other at the rear or two of them pulling the K5? Were there any other rail cars such as flatbeds, with AA, etc. or just the railgun itself.

Well, you got me there... As I said, I am not an expert on the topic (at all), but in a pilot's (P. H. Clostermann, French) book I read that there usually was a 20mm Flak car in front of the Lok. Hope that is helpful in any way
