Verona-Caprino-Garda 0-4-0 Locomotives in Italy


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 7 (Locobase 15548)

Data from Dr. R. Sanzin, "Die Lokomotiven auf der Intertionalen Austellung in Mailand 1906, 35. 2/2 gekuppelte Tenderlokomotive der Societa anonima Verona-Caprino-Garda ...", Zeitschrift des Oesterreichischen Ingenieur- und Architeckten-Vereines, Vol LIX, Nr. 13 (29 March 1907), p 225. Works number was 7494 in 1906.

Part of the Milan Exposition of 1906 featured "nebenbahn" locomotives. Nebenbahn translates as "branch line", "local line", and possibly most apropos, "secondary line." A 1910 map shows that the railway ran north from Verona, then west to Affi, where it forked to Caprino to the north and Garda to the west.
