In 1889, an order of several locomotives was placed with Sharp Stewart and Company of Glasgow . In a first for Dutch railways, the locomotives had an additional bogie of 2 axles in front of the drive wheels. The original owners were NRS, later to be replaced by HSM. This particular locomotive, number 107, had some damage to it on 8 September 1944, but was subsequently restored at the Tilburg workshop. Today, it is raised high in the museum and I was able to take a shot of its underbelly. The harsh lighting was not the best but the smell of the machine oil was nice.
PS: I had an unbeatable weekend with Astrid and Ginnie at Gorinchem and thereabouts. A fitting finale to my Hollandshire sojourn (heading to Singapore) and there will be some posts from the trip soon.
