Central Dulce Nombre de Jesus 2-6-0 Locomotives in the Dominican_Republic


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Eulalia (Locobase 14800)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 63, p. 411+. Works number was 52316 in September 1919.

This very light sugar-cane railway had 45 lb/yard (22.5 kg/metre) rail that scaled maximum grades of 3% and curve radii of 94 feet (28.7 metres) so the bi-fuel (coal or wood) plantation Mogul fit right in. The Central was located 214 km (133 miles) east of Havana.
