Kitson-Meyer 0-8-6-0T in Argentina
The private British locomotive industry produced thousands of steam locomotives for service overseas, 14, 000 for India alone. Another major market was South America, Argentina in particular. Recent histories of the city of Leeds scarcely acknowledge the extensive locomotive industry that once flourished there, five builders directly physical adjacent to each other in the Hunslet district with a grand tally of 11, 000 engines between them built over a period of more than 130 years. The largest of these was Kitson & Co., of whom a speciality was the exotic Kitson-Meyer articulated type. Here is a recently delivered Kitson-built 0-8-6-0T (1909) amid the snows of the high Andes on the Argentine Transandine Railway. The photographer was the late P C Dewhurst, who was both a professional locomotive engineer and a locomotive historian of note.
