Lnbeck-Bnchener Eisenbahn 0-8-0 Locomotives in Germany

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 10019)

Data from Charles S Lake, "Some Notes on German Locomotive Practice," Locomotive Prototypes News and Notes, The Model Engineer and Practical Electrician, 4 May 1933, pp. 411-42.

This was a relatively massive tank locomotive, larger still when one takes into account the usual German practice of measuring evaporative heating surface from the fire side.
