Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 5099)

Data from Guy Pereve through [] (August 2002). The trailing truck used a Corpet radial axle. According to Pereve, this class operated on the Bar-le-Duc a Clermont-en-Argonne line where the maximum grade ran 1 1/2% and the tightest curves had a 200-m (684-ft) radius.
