One of 45 built by various makers, including Cooke & Rogers in the USA, although some were assembled in Chile from imported parts. In Chilean State records one is attributed to Baldwin, apparently by mistake. They were mainly used on Main Line freight trains in their early years, later gravitating to less onerous duties. They were successful engines, as witnessed by their long life. They could be seen in Santiago at least until 1963.

This model was built by the German Borsig Company between 1905 and 1907. Ferrocarriles Del Estado had 70 Borsig locomotives, which offered services in freight trains and repair shops. It is the only locomotive in the whole museum that has inside cylinders, which gives it a greater drag force. For this reason it has been called the German Macho.

One of two built in 1908 by Borsig in Germany. For most of its life it was used for yard work. The other of the pair was latterly numbered 3044. The Norte Chico was the first part of Chile to rid itself of steam traction and rumour has it that 3045 powered the last working with an inspection car in 1966. It was then stored in Ovalle Workshop and, when this was closed, was moved to the one at Coquimbo. It is the most recent addition to the Museum’s locomotive collection, arriving in 1988.

Locomotive Type 59 No.18 santiagomuseum

Locomotive Type 59 No.18
Builders Number: 7389
Wheel Arrangement: 4-6-0
Years in Service: 1910 - 1970
In Service Weight: 98 tons
Maximum Speed: 90 km/hr
Coal Consumption: 12 kgs/km
Water Consumption: 96 lts/km
Gauge: 1676 mm

This locomotive was built by Borsig in Germany in 1910, and sent to an International Exhibition in Buenos Aires, after which, we deduce it was bought by an order from the Chilean Government. According to legend, it was donated to Chile by the Argentine Government to commemorate the centenary of Chilean Independence, and that it received the number 18 since Independence Day is the 18 of September. However, we have found nothing to verify this story. When new it was a compound, but was simplified around the year 1924, probably due to high maintenance costs.
