General view:


Builder plate:



This short tank locomotive with 2 powered axles, single expansion and without overheating has been built in 1924 and played an important role at the beginning of the history of the CFTR. As our 030TB130 was not finished, it had the privilege to run the inauguration train on the 9th of July 1983 and war then used on a regular base.

The Lokomotive is not allowed to run faster than 30km/h, its weight is 18 long tonnes without water and coal. The supply is 500kg coal and 2000l water.

As the current trains are a bit longer and its power quite limited (300HP), it is not so much in use like it was the case in the past. And the association wish is to preserve it from wear.
