The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Statens Järnvägar type Z4p 0-4-0 no. 331

Diesel-hydraulic shunter (in Swedish parlance a "lokomotor") photographed inside the Skara roundhouse on 28 July 2013.
No. 331 was built by Kalmar Verkstad, manufacturer's no. 112 in 1953 and delivered that April.
All the Z4p locomotives were powered eventually by Scania-Vabis D812 160 hp 8-cylinder diesel engines, driving 760 mm diameter wheels through an Atlas-Diesel DF 1.0 hydraulic gearbox. The brakes were compressed air type and they had electric generators to provide lighting. The maximum permitted speed was 40 km/h.
