    Ref: Votação Top 5 de comboios de passageiros Era 1

    Ola,

    Pena que tenha sido TÃO POBRE e sem cuidado a apresentação das 5 LOCOMOTIVAS a votação para a ERA1 a ainda mais com locomotivas que NASCERAM depois dessa ERA.

    Esperava pelo menos 3 fotos de cada com uma apresentação HISTÓRICA.

    Nesta forma sugiro votação na GARRATT.

    Hi CLFG


    Yes, I´m with you and I suggest that Samisu UPLOAD a better picture of GARRATT:

    The first Garratts[edit]
    In 1907 Beyer, Peacock & Co. submitted a proposal for a 2 ft (610 mm) gauge 0-4-0+0-4-0 Garratt to the New South Wales Government Railways, which was not proceeded with. The following year a design for a 2 ft gauge Mallet locomotive was submitted in reply to an enquiry from the Government of Tasmania. This was followed with a submission for a Garratt based on, but a little heavier than, the New South Wales proposal. This proposal was accepted, and two locomotives were built in 1909, which became the K class.[3] The K class had to cope with 99' radius curves and 1 in 25 gradients.[4]
    Unlike in Garratt's patent, Tasmanian Railways insisted on a compound arrangement with cylinders facing inwards, in order to reduce the distances between both the main steam pipe and the high-pressure cylinders, and between the high-pressure and low-pressure cylinders. This made the locomotive unnecessarily complicated and placed the high-pressure cylinders directly underneath the cab, making it uncomfortably hot, especially in summer. The pattern was not repeated on later Garratt designs. Only one more Garratt locomotive, again built by Beyer, Peacock & Co. in 1927, was produced with compound propulsion for the Burma Railways.[5]
    Early design and construction difficulties involved the steam-tight flexible connections between the boiler unit and the power units. These were solved by Beyer, Peacock's designers after studying a description of the spherical steam joints used on a Fairlie locomotive built for the Ffestiniog Railway followed by a visit to the FR to observe these locomotives at work.[6]


    Best Regards,

    LYNA

    Hello Samisu, I'm sorry to bother you in the choice you 're offering us to choose the next passenger engine for the Era 1 you cannot put loks from the 2d era like the SNCF 241A.
    The SNCF was created in 1938, eighteen years after the end of era 1 !

    Olá. Como vão resolver tudo o que se perdeu durante o dia de hoje. Principalmente os pontos de pesquisa, entre todos os outros??
