Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg Friedrich-Franz Railway grouped the various 2-2-2 steam locomotives procured between 1848 and 1863 into its Mecklenburg Class I. The MARSCHALL VORW RTS was delivered in 1848 by the Berlin locomotive works, Lokomotivfabrik F. W hlert, with factory number 1 and was given the running number 4 by the Mecklenburg Railway Company. On its nationalisation, the locomotive was renumbered to 42 and, on the introduction of a new numbering plan in 1895, to number 1. In 1866 the locomotive was given a new boiler and was retired in 1900. During a visit to the workshop the driving axle was incorrectly fitted by mistake, with the result that the locomotive ran backwards through the wall of the shed during the ensuing test run.show more
