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.

Just one more picture of this locomotive taking on water at Ed station, 161 km from Gothenburg. The hose from the local fire brigade water tender can be seen connected at the right of the picture.
96 class B locomotives were built between 1909 and 1919 for the Swedish State Railways, and some were sold to local private railways. As late as 1944 the Stockholm-Västerås-Bergslagen Railway ordered three new-build class B locomotives.
This type were kept as war reserves until the end of the 1980s, so many have been kept by museums and even sold to other countries. A survey in 2004 by SJ revealed that there are 38 of these still preserved.
Note the fully enclosed cab with sliding windows.
