Title: My Dream for WWF would to be recover 1or2 Baldwin 2-6-0 from Brazil
Post by: Thor Windbergs on April 25, 2016, 09:10:21 PM
Ok guys,
I will probably start something but I have been thinking for a long time, I'd like to see more of the 60cm engines in Brazil preserved. At the EFPP with 17 engines/hulks there will be a lifetime to restore or preserve them and they are state property so not for sale, as is most of the preserved steam engines if they were ever under the national railway administration during communistic rule. That leaves engines that were left, tolerated in semi-private plantations or industrial railroads, of which they were many.

There is a big expensive book call "Inventario das Locomotivas a Vapor No Brasil" ISBN85-906677-0-7 which is a 2006 published pictural inventory of 450 existing locomotives all over Brazil and on page 180 are "Cards" 120 & 121. Vol66pg365-366pdf229-60cmWilliamsCo4UzimaTiumaBRAZIL1920_8-14D39dwg10Rd6SN53375

Which are some of the most modern 60cm/2ft Baldwin locomotives in Brazil, after 1924 I don't think Baldwin accepted orders for such small locomotives anymore. Anyway the pictures in the book from 2006 make your mouth water, looks like you could light a fire in them and drive out of the hall, except there are no tracks. From what little research online I did with my Portuguese it looks like the Sugar cane plant was shut down and assume by the ownership of Votorium, probably the land is still used, the cane or soybeans are processed somewhere else. Maybe these engines could be liberated from Brazil, it is close to Recife in Perambuco which is not so populated...(http://)

If you want the files bigger email me and I'll share them, the builders photo is a thumbnail from the RR-MP Website, I haven't bought a copy, yet. These would be sweet machines for your mostly strait track, I'll let you experts tell me which engine they would be closest to with their 30,000lb weight and 6180pdstractive effort, No.15?

If there would be interest in the US to fund an inquiry, I would know some people that might well know the right form of diplomicy to go an ask if they would be for sale, with the week economy right now maybe it would be a good time. But they will surely not give them away for $10,000. Sorry this has been bouncing around in my head for too long it just had to get out.

Cheers and good night

That's a beautiful dream, Thor. Reading your post made me smile. With your connections in Brazil you are better placed than any of us to gauge the potential for such a transaction.

I'll let you experts tell me which engine they would be closest to with their 30,000lb weight and 6180pdstractive effort, No.15?

Are you sure about the 30,000 lb number? That's really really small for a 2-6-0, smaller even than our No. 9 which is 36,000 lbs.

SR&RL No. 15 (ex-P&R No. 3) had an engine weight of 46,000 lbs minus tender, and was a Baldwin class 8-20 D. I don't have a figure for the tractive effort but I suppose that could be calculated.  SR&RL Nos. 16 and 18 were actually the same weight as originally built, 46,000lbs, but SR&RL No. 19 was a little more massive at 49,500lbs.

By comparison, WW&F No. 6 (a Baldwin class 10-18 1/4 D) weighed 51,500lbs minus tender and had a tractive effort of 10,625 lbs.

Best regards,
Philip

Hi Phil,

You're right, some of these locos are really tiny! 

To my way of thinking, some of these locos are probably too small for the WW&F and other MTF operations.  But then the Ffestiniog allows for guest locos and even double/triple heads them for special events.  These Brazilian puppies are our analog to the wonderful quarry/hobby locos used in Wales.  They would also be useful at operations like the Sandy River, Erie Canal Village, Boothbay Railway Village, and for private use.  (ie - short, sharp curves, and not too steeply graded.) These lines would like an American loco if they could find one of suitable proportions.

Even better, as Thor points out, a number of the survivors are big enough to useful to museum lines like the WW&F, Edaville, and the Cripple Creek and Victor. 

I'll do my best to help you guys find good homes for these survivors.


Best Regards,
Glenn

Tiny is the right word, Glenn! 15 tons would be about midway between W&Q No. 1 and No. 9 in weight, which seems almost incomprehensibly cute for a 2-6-0. :) It makes me wish I had a pot of spare money lying around, but I don't...

Hi Thor,

I've done a little looking and the Maine locomotives closest in size to Usina Tiuma Baldwins were the 15-ton Hinkley-designed 0-4-4Ts that ran on the B&SR, Monson, F&M and KCRR.  As far as I can tell their TF is about 4000 pounds.  These locos were "in size" exactly between the B&B engines (12 tons, TF 2636) and the later Portlands like WW&F #9 (18-ton, TF 5363).  WW&F #10 (a 12-ton Vulcan with 2856 pounds TF) is about the size of the B&B Hinkleys, although I wouldn't be surprised if she comes out of her current rebuild with a bit more "juice".  So if #10 is good for 2 cars up "The Mountain" and #9 is good for 4 cars up "The Mountain" a 15-ton Hinkley would have been good for about 3 cars up "The Mountain".

Question, do you have a computerized scan of the picture at the top of page 106 at the end of the Hahmann/Small 'Brazilian Steam Album Vol. 1".  If so, could you post it?  It's Usina Tiuma #7.  I believe this locomotive is similar to the ones we've been talking about. There a other UT locos depicted here as well.

Best Regards,
Glenn

Fascinating little moguls, Thor! I'm thinking at 15 tons total engine weight, 6180lbs TE is probably pretty accurate, as the majority of the engine weight would be carried on the drivers. I believe a 15 ton Forney probably has a fairly significant portion of its' weight on the tender truck, therefore reducing its' tractive effort. Modern steam designers generally tried for a factor of adhesion in the 4.0 range. 4lbs of weight on drivers for every pound of potential tractive effort. A smaller factor of adhesion tended to make for a slippery engine, higher numbers made for a sluggish engine. So if we figure about 25,000lbs on the drivers, that leaves 5,000lbs on the pilot wheels. Probably actually has a little more of that weight on the drivers for steadier performance on rough track.

So, is the museum sending a schooner South from Wiscasset anytime soon?

There is a classified ad in the latest (June 2016) TRAINS magazine listing 2 Brazilian steam locomotives for sale.  I went to their web site and there are several photos, but I don't know any Portuguese (I think that's what they speak in Brazil).  The ad states they are "metric", but I think they meant to say that they are "meter" gauge.

Hi Roger,

Yup, sounds like they're talking meter gauge.  It would be unusual for a 60cm or 610mm loco to be numbered 89, but that doesn't mean its impossible.  If you can get me a copy of the Portuguese language version of the ad, I will attempt an English translation.

If you need translation you can get in touch with my SIL.
She grew up in Sao Paulo.

Will let you guys talk direct.

Let me know

Thanks for the offer Carl!

I may need your sister-in-law's help at a future date, but my mother's side of the family came from the Azores and I've wanted to learn Portuguese for a long time anyway.  I took Spanish in both High School and college, so I have some background.

I have the locomotive files translated already, but am having problems figuring out how to post them here as I've never worked with these file formats before.  I'm also having problems figuring out how to get translated text into the "directory" pages that allow you to switch from page to page.  (I don't know that the word "directory" is the correct term, but to I'm using it in an attempt describe a page that allows me to skip from say, the "Home" page to the "Contacts" page.)

I've reached out to Ed Lecuyer and requested his assistance.  I've always found him to be very helpful.  

Hopefully we'll be able to get things moving before too long.


Best Regards,
Glenn

Hi Folks,

After reviewing the locomotives listed on the "Locomotivas a Vapor" (LaV) website, I have found that all listed locomotives were or have been regauged to meter (39.37") gauge.  Please note, this does NOT say that any appropriate locomotives either from Brazil or LaV won't be considered in the future.  It simply means that THESE locomotives are not under consideration for acquisition at this time.

Because of the technical problems we've encountered, we have determined that there is simply no good way for us to capture the translated text alongside its related picture in the same view. But as I have completed the translations for the six LaV locomotive descriptions, I will add each description as six additional replies to this one.

To see the pictures that go along with these descriptions use the following http link to get to for the LaV site:
 
http://www.locomotivasavapor.com.br/home.htm (http://www.locomotivasavapor.com.br/home.htm)

Once there, do the following:
From the "HOME" screen select the page called "Nos Trilhos".
It will take a couple seconds for the page to load.
Click on the picture of the locomotive whose description you wish to read.


Best Regards,

Glenn

The locomotive 57 was restored from what remained of the "Triunpho" a O & K 0-4-0T the plant Cruangi in Timbaúba - PE. Taking advantage only wheelsets with their bearings and the two cylinders, everything in it is new. The wheels were milled and whole movement was rebuilt by adopting the Southern system. The cylinders were machined and the rods again won new bushing.

Built to place 57 a front set of guide wheel, which turns the machine into a 2-4-0. With this new attachment to place 57 goes smoothly in tight turns of our railway. We made ??her an entirely new trend, giving comfort to the water and firewood supply service. The boiler received timbre to 8.4 atm. The locomotive was inaugurated in August 2010.

Title: LaV locomotive No89
Post by: Glenn Christensen on May 04, 2016, 07:54:26 PM
locomotive 89

The locomotive 89 was rebuilt on the farm premises, from an abandoned machine in a junkyard in Campos, Rio de Janeiro, on the Ides of 1996. We do not know its origin, but we suppose it was a Baldwin 0-4-2 1915 or more. Drew attention cylinders - typically American, but bolted to the chassis plate as a O & K or Kerr-Stuart.

The two blocks of the cylinders were cast new, as replicas of the alleged Baldwin. The two wheelsets had to be remanufactured in the workshops of the Superhighway (Rio de Janeiro, RJ). The chassis was made ??from new structural plate. The boiler had its specifications and construction details dictated by the Lincoln Payala engineer.

We had to recreate a movement mechanism based on Marshal system, inclined 25º from the horizontal. However, instead of the transmission bar (transmitting the back-and-forth of the cam bar to the rod tray), we made ??a "square", that describes an event line without distortions to the drawer, both for forward as for re. Thus the movement of the calibration becomes very easy, and the rhythmic sound in the forward + reverse gear proves the effectiveness of the mechanism. Each bracket is made ??from two linear guides, arranged 90 ° apart (thus the part name).

In the photo we see the 1 block from the casting.

In photo 2 we see the parallels constructed with linear guides, and the rods of chromed piston and welded directly into your eyelets.

In picture 4 we see the adjustment movement when the locomotive is brought forward and backward with the aid of a tractor.

Photo 8: towing loco No. 3 two wagons bib.

The other photos show the site 89 touring the farm.

The locomotive 89 was inaugurated in 2007. It is a robust engine, easy to be conducted and very economical.

Data:
- Diameter of rolls: 24.5 cm
- Pistons of course: 37.0 cm
- Wheel diameter: 68.0 cm (locomotive type 0-4-0)
- Rigid base of the wheels: 1.80 m
- Working pressure: 114 lbs
- Heating surface: 28.8 m², with 125 pipes Ø 1 ½ "x 2.0 m
- Volume of water in the boiler (level 12 cm above the furnace sky): 1.43 m³
- Volume of water in the tender: 3.30 m³
- Approximate weight of the locomotive with tender (without water): 13 ton

locomotive 100

The locomotive No. 100 is an entirely new machine 2-4-0 with the cylinders equal to the Loco 89, and their pistons are hard aluminum to give less inertia in the reciprocating motion. 3. The tilt in the same motion made ??cylindrical blocks stay higher relative to the ground, protecting drains and giving greater visibility to go inside.

An interesting innovation is the application of two independent Steam regulators,
at the sides of the de-smoke-box.

The boiler won timbre of 9.1 atm (130 lb). The tender had increased its reservoir for 3700 liters. The idler assembly was slightly modified, the construction of the locomotive lasted two years and was completed in 2012.

locomotive 148

The locomotive 148 has earned this new number after restoring the farm workshops in 2001. She was the No. 2 of the former plant Cambaíba in Campos, State of Rio de Janeiro, and arrived at our railroad in 1999.
