Hello,
For about a year now I have been trying to find out more about the steam locomotives of the FCC. I have the Trains Magazine article from the mid 1950s which is truly tantalizing. However, it begs more questions than provides answers. Are The Central Railway of Peru and the Cerro De Pasco Railway by Donald Binns, Railways of Peru : Volume 2 - the Central and Southern Lines by Robert Whetham, and/or Railways across the Andes by Edgar Haine any good? Additionally, I haven't seen much about the end of steam on the FCC. When did it happen and how were the locomotives disposed of?
The only survivors I know of are the 206, an Andes class from the Cerro de Pasco, and some tank locomotives.
Thank you,
John
