Adriatico 0-6-0 Locomotives in Italy


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 5410)

Data from December 1891 RREJ. This may be a simple-expansion variant of the numerous FS 290 class, which was built beginning in 1889. Like many European 6-wheelers, this engine carried its steam dome well foward.
