  • ARM C38 CLASS #3820 4-6-2 LOCOMOTIVE
Product Code:53-87003

DESCRIPTION

 C38 Class Locomotive was commissioned for the New South Wales Government Railways to eliminate the expense and complications of double heading express passenger and mail trains on the demanding line between Sydney and Albury. Designed and built in Australia they boasted an impressive 200 tonnes and up to 2500 horsepower. The first five locomotives were constructed by Clyde Engineering of Sydney. They each featured a streamline design that was considered fashionable to attract passengers of the time. 

After a successful introduction, the second batch of 25 non-streamlined locomotives were ordered in 1943. The first none-streamlined locomotive rolled out in November 1945. The late 1950’s saw the rise of the diesel locomotive and the loss of the prestos passenger duties for the c38s as they went to haul mixed freight.
