Hanichener Kohlenbahn 0-4-0 Locomotives in Germany

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class H VII T / L 22 /BR 98.7 (Locobase 3851)

Data from Windbergbahn Railway website ([], visited 27 December 2002)) supplies the limited information.

These engines were bought by the HK, but also served the succeeding Windbergbahn for years.

Christian Lindecke, of [] (visited 30 December 2003), has data for locomotives that have identical dimensions as far as can be compared. Heating surfaces come from that listing. The Windbergbahn site gives a building year of 1885, but that's probably for the later batch.
