Class Parcocha/030-0230 (Locobase 3407)

Data from [], the web site of the Spanish National Railway. See also "Las Locomotoras Baracaldo y Santurce" in Juanjo Olaizola Elordi's Historias del Tren ([]), last accessed 12 July 2014.

This trio of saddle-tank switchers were procured from Sharp Stewart after an earlier set had proved their greater value compared to the four-coupled engines this iron road had first procured. Olaizola says that this later group essentially duplicated the earlier two--Sestao (8) and El Valle (9)--bought in 1880 (works numbers 2926-2927). They were regarded as attractive engines and featured an unusual cab that had full-height openings on the sides and rounded front and rear cab roof edges. The small steam dome perched over the firebox.

Three of the five had been sold to other railways by the time RENFE gathered the others into its national system. When the Triano line was electrified in 1953, the Baracaldo and the Santurce were sent to the Miranda de Ebro shed. Sold in 1960 to the Azucarera Leopoldo (a Miranda de Ebro sugar processor), the pair were bought in 1963 by the Junta de Obras del Puerto de Pasajes as switchers where they worked until 1968.

Their final resting place was on display at the Escuela PolitTcnica Universitaria de Burgos.
