Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Ls (Locobase 3977)

Data from WilliamBay, Danmarks Damplokomotiver (1977)

This trio of low-drivered freight locomotives was bought to serve the Slagelse Dalmose-N'stved line south of Copenhagen. After 15 years in service, the class was converted in 1907-1908 to 0-6-0T.

20 years later the Ls 297 was scrapped. Ls 298 retired in September 1932 and Ls 296 went in Febuary 1934.
