Default Re: General Locomotive 4-4-0

Loco wheel numbering refers to :-

Front bogie
Drivers
Rear bogie

i.e. 4-4-0 = four front bogies, four drivers and no rear bogies...............oo OO -
e.g. 4-6-2 = oo OOO o
4-8-4 = oo OOOO oo
0-4-0 = - OO -

Hope this helps

Best Regards
Bob

So you have four wheels on the front bogie, four coupled wheels and zero trailing bogie.
And just to confuse matters - in some countries they count axles not wheels.

Gee, I don't know. I typed 0-2-0 into Google and I didn't get any pictures of locomotives. What did I do wrong?

I'm with you, Marv. I tried 4-8-8-4 and got -16. The math is correct, so at least that part worked right.

Of course, when I typed "4-8-8-4 locomotive" the results were way different and more predictable.

What you did "wrong" was to go to google "everything" option instead of "images" option.
You didn't follow instructions - I said "google images" not "google".

Chris :P

Chris,

It was a joke. A 0-2-0 locomotive? Think about it.

Like I have said in my original post - some countries count wheels, other count axles, so 0-2-0 is perfectly sound wheel arrangement if you are in France, Switzerland, Turkey, Poland etc, etc
Here a fine example of 0-2-0 loco:

and yes I have found it using google

You need to widen your horizons

Worse yet, such things as 0-3-0's exist in the Whyte classification system.
