ARBED-Differdange 0-6-0 Locomotives in Luxemburg

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class pr T7 (Locobase 5028)

[] offers a table of locomotives preserved by the Luxembourg group "Train 1900".Hanomag's works # 4018 was delivered to the ARBED works at Differdangel. It was acquired by the Train 1900 group in 1973.

ARBED (AciTries RTunies de Burbach-Eich-Dudelange) was the umbrella acronym for a series of steel works railroads in Luxembourg that were amalgamated in 1911. See [] for details.
