Brand - Reference

Jouef HJ2188

Type

2-8-2 2 141-R-994 and 30-R-994 tender, coal-fired.

Mass (loco + tender) / Slipping current

383 g / 0.4 A sous 12 V

Comments

Machine delivered with two buffers and two complete articulated screw couplings (in addition to those already mounted on the front buffer beam).

The machine is driving, but the tender is inseparable in practice, and it contains the decoder.

A sand pipe, which was deformed in the box, broke on the first attempt at straightening out. The injector is glued completely crooked.

See gamos81.altervista.org for the reference list of issued 141-R models.

History

Series of 1324 machines manufactured in the United States and delivered to France between 1945 and 1947. Theoretical traction force 237 kN. Speed ​​limit 100 km/h. Weight 116 t (tender 72 t laden).

The R 994 was originally an oil-fired machine, converted to coal-firing in 1956 following the Suez crisis. Put into service in January 1947 in Le Teil (Ardèche), it was assigned to the Boulogne depot on March 30, 1961. It was cancelled on December 15, 1970 (source: Le Train spécial No. 51, page 92).

In the Nord region, the last 141 R cease to be used in 1971.

For the anecdote, during our holydays in Banyuls (Pyrénées Orientales, South of France) in 1968, I saw many trains pulled by “R” locos. The following year, they had disappeared, replaced by Diesel 67000.
