Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 101 (Locobase 21063)

Data from "3/3 gek. Guterzug-Locomotive fur normal Spurweite-Konigliche Militareisenbahn und Pruessis Staatsbahnen", (Tegel bei Berlin, 1878), p. 23. Works numbers were 4467 in November 1894, 4468-4469 in December.

The Kaiserliche und Königliche Eisenbahn-Bau Kompanie unit (German Imperial Railway Construction Company) used engines like this to support reconstruction of damaged right of way. It operated in the East during World War I.
