The RENFE locomotives are divided into groups covering the various private companies
from which it was formed, with a final section covering those built after
nationalisation. The smaller RENFE constituents are included in the section on the
Oeste and the Central of Aragón is included in that on the Andaluces. The narrow gauge
public railways are divided into two sections, the first east of Madrid and the other
west thereof. Similarly industrial locomotives are divided up between those from the
coal industry & those from other industries. A picture of each class of locomotive of
which photographs exist in the Trust’s collection is displayed in the relevant photo
gallery listed below.
Much of the information regarding RENFE motive power that is quoted in these pages was taken from the standard work in English on Spanish locomotives - Lawrence Marshall’s ‘Steam on the RENFE’ published in 1965 and long out of print.
The number & builders plates on the cab side of a former Andaluces 2-8-0 stood in Guadix shed yard on 22/6/1966.
