Tabacalera Central/CA de Bais 0-6-0 Locomotives in Philippines


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 5 (Locobase 15458)

Data from DeGolyer, Vol 79, pp. 368+. 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 60247-60251 in October 1927.

Fitted with a Rushton Improved spark-arresting cabbage stack, these six-coupled plantation locomotives beefed up one of the two Tarlac City sugar centrals north of Manila in Luzon.

5 would later join its production-line mate #9, which was delivered to the Central Azucarera de Bais.
