34001 to 34018 & 34046 to 34048

  • Axle: 1'C, an optional carrying axle can be mounted on these units: 1'(C1)
  • Total quantity: 18 + 3
  • First year: 1911/14
  • Manufacturer: Hanomag / Borsig
  • Ex CFOA 9 units / Baghdad Railway 12 units

The engine are in three sub series:

  • 34001 to 34009: former CFOA engines with 16m3 tender
  • 34010 to 34018: former Baghdad Rly engines with 20m3 tender
  • 34046 to 34048: former Cenup Rly engines with 20m3 tender


Theses engines have a somewhat complicated history. They were ordered in several batches, and from two manufacturers, both by the CFOA and the Baghdad Railway. The last units were delivered in 1914, after the start of World War One. Four (or five) units have been captured at sea by the British and diverted to the Egyptian State Railways. Several units were scattered after the war and during the partitioning of the Baghdad Railway. 3 units went to the DHP and then to the CFS. 3 units went to the Cenup and were recovered later by TCDD. As sequence numbers 34019 and upward were already allocated, these engines were numbered 34046, 34047 and 34048. Finally, the fate of three units is unknown, one might have gone to Irak, the other two are likely to have been destroyed during the war.

Hanomag designed these locomotives with an unusual carrying axle added between the second and the third driving wheel. Futhermore, this axle could be removed and consequently, this loco had a dual axle load distribution:

  • with carrying axle: the load on this axle was 6,2t and the load on the driving wheel was 13,5t
  • without carrying axle, the load on the driving wheel was increased to 15,5t.

Both configuration could be seen on the Turkish network. The light axle version proved usefull on the lightest lines around Izmir.
