Description

Belgium produced many original locomotive designs, but none more original than this “Type 12”. They were of the “Atlantic” wheel arrangement (4-4-2), and unusually had two inside cylinders. They were fast and stable, and for a time after their introduction in 1939, hauled the world’s fastest scheduled train, between Brussels and Ostende.
