Re: OFF TOPIC German narrow gauge

Frank Stamford

Good morning all,

It depends on what your definition of "articulated" is, I think.

If you consider "articulated" to mean separate frames, as in Garratt, Meyer, Hagans, Fairlie, Mallet etc, then the Harz 2-10-2Ts are not articulated.

If you consider "articulated" to mean not having a rigid wheelbase, then the Harz 2-10-2Ts are articulated, the first and fifth driving axles are allowed some radial movement.

In any case, thanks Michael for posting some very nice pictures of a most interesting railway.

Their articulated 2-10-2 locomotives are amazing.

Nice photos - however the 2-10-2T locos are NOT articulated!
