Vindbro Lokomotivfabrik A/S


Vindbro Lokomotivfabrik A/S (Vindbro Locomotive Factory), doing business as Vindbro or VLF, is an Andallan manufacturer of rolling stock. Founded in 1886 during the reign of Christian VI as Det Kongelige Andska Dampvagnfabrik or the Royal Andallan Steam Wagon Factory, the company was part of a government initiative to construct the first railroad in the country. Since then, it has maintained close ties with the Andallan state-owned railway company, Kongelige Andska Statsbaner (Royal Andallan State Railways), now known as AB or Andska Baner (Andallan Railways).

The ASB Class I was the first Andallan locomotive to enter into commercial service. Locomotive No.1 ("Helga") commenced operation in 1889 to much fanfare, with the inauguration ceremony being attended by King Harald VI. Though not as powerful as the @Iverican-bought locomotives already operating on Andallan rails, it demonstrated the ability to domestically-produce one that could eventually replace the foreign locomotives being operated at that time. A narrow-gauge, 2-4-0 steam locomotive, it ran at a speed of around 40 km/h. Three units in total were built across a span of 2 months, with all three being decommissioned in August 1930.

Specifications

  • Maximum Speed: 40 km/h
  • Gauge: 1,067 mm Narrow Gauge (3 ft. 6 in.)
  • Configuration (Whyte)2-4-0
  • Configuration (UIC)1B, 1'B

The ASB Class XIX was the first truly successful domestically-produced locomotive. Entering service in 1902, the Class XIX operated primarily in rural areas, becoming a key factor in the expansion of the Andallan rail network to cover less-populated towns in need of transport infrastructure. 23 units of the type were produced, most serving until the 1940's and 50's. Three locomotives are preserved, with one (No. 11 "Bjaere") still in operation along the Mosby-Røyknes Heritage Line in Sudholm.

Specifications

  • Maximum Speed: 40 km/h
  • Gauge: 1,067 mm Narrow Gauge (3 ft. 6 in.)
  • Configuration (Whyte)2-6-2T
  • Configuration (UIC)1′C1′t n2
  • Length: 8.31 m (27 ft. 3 in.)
