Best source I have found for Russian decapods is The railway and Locomotive Historical society bulletin No. 124. Build to preservation or scrap on almost all of them.

According to "B&O Power", the Best and Only had a small fleet of ex-Buffalo, Rochester, and Pittsburgh Decapods, in B&O class Y. Mr. Sagle has pictures of two (only two) in the book and they looked like he-men. The caption for one of them, slide-valves and all, read, "Class Y decapods could pull everything out of town but the yard office"!
