San Bernadino & Redlands 0-4-2 Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Redlands (Locobase 16237)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Volume 14, p. 242; and SP Menke All-Time Steam Locomotive Diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works number was 9746 in January 1889.

The original 1888 specs show a very similar steam dummy intended to run on the 25 lb/yard (12.5kg/metre) rail. It burned coal and had 54 tubes in the boiler. The data show the 2 as rebuilt after a December 1891 fire. Renumbered 1, it now burned oil.

Leased in 1892 by the Southern Pacific as a car service dummy, the 1 operated until 1916.
