About The Narrow Gauge Forest Steam Engine Cn2t LAS
This is called a forest steam engine because it was specially designed to not cause forest fires.
Most steam engines spread sparks and coals through the smokestacks and dropped ashes and burning coals from the ash boxes onto the tracks. Steam train caused fires were common everywhere.
This engine with three axles and specially designed fire free cinder handling equipment allowed it to operate with a low axle load on weak track in forests.
It was a very popular design and widely used.
