Czech State Rwy 0-6-2 Locomotives in Czechoslovakia


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class C1 (Locobase 6390)

Data from [], an industrial railway museum website in the Czech Republic visited in November 2004.

Krauss Linz's work #7485 was this little tank, unusually laid out even for an odd wheel arrangement such as the 0-6-2. Although originally a class XIIg 0-6-0T light military locomotive, this particular locomotive was later converted to the current layout. The rear idler had the same diameter as the 3 driven axles' wheels and it was rigidly held in an external frame under the oil bunker at the extreme rear. The drivers were all clumped together under the boiler and fed by a sand dome located just behind the steam dome.

After conversion, the C1 served Czech industrial users throughout the many changes of regime inflicted on the region by the 20th Century.


Class C5 (Locobase 6391)

Data from [], an industrial railway museum website in the Czech Republic visited in November 2004.

Krauss Linz's work #1518. Locobase can make only bits of the Czech-language description of this tank, but comparison with the earlier C1 (Locobase 6390) yields a lot on its own. This locomotive was built a few years after C1 was converted from an 0-6-0T (Cn2t), but apparently to the 0-6-2T layout from the beginning. All the dimensions were enlarged with a resulting 56% increase in tractive effort. The grate was proportionately a little more generous, the boiler less so.
