Handelsvereeniging 0-8-0 Locomotives in Indonesia

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 14663)

Data from DeGolyer, Vol 60, pp. 401. Works number was 53700 in September 1920.

Three years after the Handelsvereeniging had bought eight-coupled tanks from Baldwin (Locobase 14662), they returned for another similar, but somewhat enlarged engine. All of the drivers rolled in Rushton radial axles.

The engine was built as a wood burner, but it was delivered with an extra set of grates, netting, high exhaust, deflecting plate, straight stack to allow it to burn coal. There was no extra charge.
