CF de la Vendee 0-6-0 Locomotives in France


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 6/3037 (Locobase 15518)

Data from SACM diagram Loco 40 Tend 32 from Societe Alsacienne de Constructions Mecaniques from locomotive book supplied by Dany Machi up at [] as

Diagrammes des machines SACM construites a GRAFENSTADEN (October 2007). Builders included Grafenstaden (8), Ernest Gonin et Cie. (4), Schneider et Cie. (8), SACM (4) from 1871-1878.

Tube diameter is the interior measurement. The diagram shows a small cab with two windows per side behind a long boiler with the large steam dome just behind the stack and over the first axle.
