Indeed, few museums have such exhibits. Tanks, guns, howitzers, trucks, self-propelled guns are somehow more familiar. Plus, the sizes are also suitable. Meanwhile, not only they won the war. Steam engines were, perhaps, not so noticeable, but, nevertheless, a very significant component of any army.
Moreover, losing the battle due to lack of tanks or guns is likely. But to lose the battle without starting it because of the lack of locomotives is no less logical. For it was with their help that tanks and guns could get from the factory to the front. In some countries the size of a handkerchief, maybe it would be otherwise. But not in ours.
In Brest, opposite the main entrance to the Brest Fortress, there is a small museum. And there ... I would say there is the maximum concentration of horsepower per square meter of museum area. However, judge for yourself.

The 52 type steam locomotive, or BR 52, was developed in the first half of 1942 as a “military” locomotive. The main task of the designers was to create the cheapest and most technologically advanced and at the same time reliable and easy to maintain locomotive. In this case, the possible duration of operation was allowed to be neglected: the estimated lifetime of the locomotive should have been about 5 years.
In total, during the war, about 2200 of such locomotives, which were operated on the railways in 1940-70, were received by the USSR as trophies and reparations.
