Strade Ferrate della Sicilia/FS 0-6-0 Locomotives in Italy


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Gruppo C-I & II (Locobase 6211)

Data from the Rete Sicula website

[] ... (visited 5 July 2004). The RS bought several dozen of these six-coupleds, which Locobase has broken into two entries only to show the enlarged boiler in Sottogruppo iii. All were rated at 50 km/h (31 mph).

At the time of the Ferrovie dello Stato's takeover in 1905, Gruppo C was divided between Palermo and Catania in roughly even numbers.
