Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class IV (Locobase 3740)

Data from Carlos Alberto Fern+ndez Priotti in Bryan Attewell ([] Steam Locomotive simulator program (April 2000). Works numbers were 2268-2271, 2306-2312 in 1887

These and the Class III Moguls delivered in the same year from the same builder used the same boiler and cylinders.
