Federaux de l'est Bresilien 2-6-0 Locomotives in Brazil

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 60 (Locobase 13772)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 36, p.278. Works numbers were 36033-36034 in February 1911.

The Bresilien sat down with a Baldwin representative on August 8, 1910 and began ordering locomotives of 3 different arrangements. The first pair was this set of wood-burning Moguls.

The Compagnie Chemins de Fer Federaux Du L'est BrTsilien (CCFFEB) was a creation of the then-President of Brazil, Hermes da Fonseca, who unified all of the disparate railways in Bahia under this Franco-Belge company in 1911.
