Borsigwerke 0-4-0 Locomotives in Germany


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 21043)

Data from "2/2 gek. Tender-lokomotive fur 785 mm Spurweite", Locomotiven, A Borsig (Tegel bei Berlin, 1898), archived on Historical Railway Images, Flickr, at [], p. 41, last accessed 8 July 2022. Works numbers for Borsig's own stock or use were 4614 in December 1897, and 4699 in 1898, 4753, 4756 in 1899, 4805 in July 1900, 4805-4808 in 1901. 5158 in April 1903, 5270 in November 1903, 5675 in August 1905, 6013 in February 1907.

This industrial four-coupled tank suited various industries including the builder's own works. Locobase chooses to highlight this design's use by the builder itself.

At least as many more 0-4-0Ts for the 785 mm gauge also came from Borsig during this period.
