Ural 0-6-0 Locomotives in Russia

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 9132)

Data from Apercu des Chemins de Fer Russes Depuis l'Origine Jusqu'en 1892, Editor in Chief Andre de Gortschakov (Brussells: Paul Weissenbruch, 1897). pp 47, 80.

This is a tank engine used in switching (shunting) operations. Its inside cylinders were inclined at a 1 to 8 angle. Locobase isn't sure of his French, but believes these had saddle tanks. ("...le bacs a eau se trouvent de part et d'autre du corps cylindrique de la chaudiere.")
