Bombay, Baroda & Central India / Bombay, Baroda & Central Indian 0-6-2 Locomotives in India


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 29 (Locobase 10315)

Data from "Six-coupled Radial Tank Engines, Bombay, Baroda & Central India Ry", The Locomotive Magazine,Vol VIII (9 May 1903), p. 325

Although the article states that this class was essentially identical to a Vulcan Foundry order, those were for 0-6-0s with grates of 20 sq ft. The data for the current class includes the radial axle that made it possible to use a larger grate and bunker. Unfortunately, the article gives no information on which German builders supplied how many locomotives.


Class unknown (Locobase 13589)

Data from Charles Rous-Martens, "British Locomotives for Abroad", Page's Magazine, Volume III, No 2 (August 1903), p. 117-118.
