Littau-Gross Senitz 0-6-0 Locomotives in Czechoslovakia

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Litovel (Locobase 6169)

Data from web.telecom.zz/firmy/310/popis.htm. The [] (the Austrian steam base, 27 June 2004) that this is an enlargement of the original Class 97 tank. The BMMF was a small Czech builder; this engine's works # was 483.

The photograph shows a side tank with side bunkers, tall, brass thimble-shaped steam dome over the first axle, a slender, flared stack, and outside Stephenson valve gear on the third axle.
