Hawaiian-Philippine 0-6-0 Locomotives in Philippines


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 1 (Locobase 14744)

Data from DeGolyer, Vol 63, pp. 205. See also a listing of Sugar Centrals in the Philippines in the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines Journal (January 1922), p. 30. Works numbers were 52198-52199 in August 1919.

Identical to several plantation saddle-tankers sent to the Philippines at this time, but trailing a tender instead. H-P, like so many Philippine sugar processors, was located in the province of Negros Occidental. The mill near Silay could process 1,000 tons of sugar cane per day.


Class 3 (Locobase 14746)

Data from DeGolyer, Vol 63, pp. 211. See also a listing of Sugar Centrals in the Philippines in the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines Journal (January 1922), p. 30. Works numbers were 52864-52867 in January 1920.

This quartet of six-coupleds followed closely on the heels of the first two engines, which are shown in Locobase 14744. The design featured a bigger boiler and cylinders on seven tons more adhesion weight.


Class 7 (Locobase 15459)

Data from DeGolyer, Vol 79, pp. 374+. Works number was 60677 in October 1928.

Baled bagasse, the refuse of sugar-cane processing, served as a handy fuel for some plantation locomotives. The 7's fuel was described as containing 28% water. That much liquid reduced the amount of combustible fuel per cubic measure and may explain the somewhat larger grate and firebox fitted to this locomotive compared to the very similar 3-6 delivered in 1920 (Locobase 14746), which burned soft coal..
