CF Dakar-St Louis 0-6-0 Locomotives in Senegal_and_Ivory_Coast

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 114 (Locobase 6811)

Data from the table presented on pages 416, 417 of the Groupe VI. - GTnie civil. - Moyens de transport. DeuxiFme partie. Classes 32 (Tome I), part of the series of Rapports du Jury Internationale of the Exposition Unverselle Internationale de 1900 Paris Exposition, hosted on the website of Le Conservatoire numTrique des Arts & MTtiers ([], Accessed 21 August 2005).

The report does not state how many locomotives made up this class. The diagram shows a straight and slender boiler with the firebox located behind the rear axle, giving the design a "Longboiler" look.
