דגם של קטר מספר 1 - רכבת יפו-ירושלים
קטר קיטור מספר 1 של חברת מסילת הברזל יפו-ירושלים היה הקטר הראשון שפעל בארץ ישראל.

החברה רכשה 5 קטרים כאלו בין השנים 1890-1892, שנשאו את המספרים 1-5. הם היו הקטרים היחידים שלה משלבי הקמת המסילה ועד לרכישת קטרים גדולים יותר החל מ-1904. הקטרים המשיכו לעבוד עד מלחמת העולם הראשונה אבל רק מספר 3 פעל אחריה, עד 1930.

Model of locomotive number 1 - Jaffa-Jerusalem train
Steam locomotive number 1 of the Jaffa-Jerusalem Railway Company was the first locomotive to operate in the Land of Israel.
Built in 1890 in the USA by the Baldwin company, with a 0-2-6 wheel arrangement and a van - a supply wagon for fuel and water.
The company purchased 5 such locomotives between the years 1890-1892, which bore the numbers 1-5. They were its only locomotives from the stages of the construction of the track until the purchase of larger locomotives starting in 1904. The locomotives continued to work until the First World War but only number 3 operated after it, until 1930.
