Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Id / 334.001 (Locobase 11200)

Data from [], last accessed 12 April 2010. Works number 145.

This was one of two locomotives delivered to the ATE ; the other used a 3-cylinder compounding system. Locobase isn't sure how to apply the 490-mm and 590-mm diameters: is it 2 LP at 490 or 2 HP at 490?

In any case, when the ATE was folded in the Czech Railways in 1924, both locomotives were updated as compounds and as such served both Czechoslovakia and the Third Reich.


Class Ie / 344.601 (Locobase 11201)

Data from [], last accessed 13 April 2010

ATE, a private railway in Bohemia, bought two passenger Moguls to work 400-ton trains up a 1% grade at 35 km/hr (20 mph) and were so satisfied with the performance and the lower cost that they bought 8 more in 1910-1914 whose only difference was a modified Kobel spark-arresting stack.

Moving into Czech State Railways in 1924, the engines were grouped in the 344.601 class and served until 1954.
