FC Rosario a Puerto Belgrano 2-8-0 Locomotives in Argentina


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 111 (Locobase 3737)

Data provided by Carlos Alberto Fernandez Priotti in Bryan Attewell ([] Steam Locomotive simulator program (April 2000) and SACM diagram UG Type 178 from Elsassische Maschinenbau AG from locomotive book supplied by Dany Machi up at [] as

Diagrammes des machines SACM construites a GRAFENSTADEN (October 2007).

Powerful Consolidations that were simpled from their original layout in which they were the only four-cylinder de Glehn compounds ever to run on Argentine rails. The SACM diagram shows that fire-side diameters for the tubes and flues were 45 and 128 mm, respectively.
