Albanian Locomotive Summary

The following is an attempt to list all locomotives noted in Albania, and those reported by suppliers as having been delivered to Albania. The first steam locomotives were second-hand and retained their former-owners' numbers. Steam locomotives 31, 72, 73 and 75 may been renumbered. Class Tkt48 locomotives were delivered new and appear to have started the local numbering sequence.
Diesel shunters, both standard and narrow gauge are numbered from 450 onwards. Mainline diesel locomotives of Classes T435.0 and T458.1 appear to have been numbered in the Czech industrial and export series, the gaps in numbering being those delivered to countries other than Albania. The T669 locomotives, which are similar to Czech/Slovak Class T669.0 (now Class 770), seem to have been numbered in the T669.1 series to be accomodated within the Albanian sequence and duplicate the old Czech/Slovak numbering (T669.1, now class 771). The ex-DB Class 221s were renumbered to fit the Albanian sequence.
