Hejaz 2-8-0 Locomotives in Palestine


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 16111)

Data from "2-8-0 Goods Locomotive, Hedjaz[sic] Railway", The Locomotive, Volume XVII [17] (14 October 1911), p. 226. See also "The Hedjaz Railway", Locomotive Magazine, Volume XXI [21] (15 April 1915), pp. 79-81.

In a departure from usual practice, Arnold Jung supplied Consolidation locomotives that had the lead truck placed behind the cylinders. The top of the boiler showed a cylindrical dome over the front driven axle and a square sand box over the second driver.


Class unknown (Locobase 20937)

Data from "1D (4/5 gek.) Zweizylinder-Guterug-Lokomotive gebaut fur die Chemin de Fer Hamidie du Hedjaz, Syrien" data card.
