Ingenio Barahona 2-6-0 Locomotives in the Dominican_Republic

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 3 (Locobase 14498)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 63, pp. 321+. Works number was 54260 in January 1921.

West India Sugar Finance Corporation bought this wood-burning plantation Mogul with dimensions and power large enough to handle mixed-traffic trains. The Improved Rushton stack was an update of the classic Radley & Hunter spark-arresting balloon stack.

The Central Barahona was established in 1916 in the DR to take advantage of the soaring sugar prices caused by the First World War. It quickly amassed 317,000 tareas (about 48,700 acres) in the western part of the country, which made it the second largest Central.
