Augustin Fuller 2-6-0 Locomotives in Cuba

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Olivia (Locobase 11526)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines, 1903, as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 26, p. 168. works number was 23300 in December 1903.

The Augustin Fuller Company was recognized at the time of its purchase of this little Mogul as one of the oldest and best-known in the field of designing sugar plants in the Caribbean and, especially, in Mexico. After a stint with the contractor, the engine went on to the United Railways of Havana, where it was renumbered 775.
