Mallets built for export by North American locomotive builders

    During the first half of the 20th century, the Baldwin Locomotives Works and the American Locomotive Company built about 150 Mallet-type articulateds for export.   Used in a variety of roles from plantation work to mainline service, on gauges ranging from thirty inches to five feet, these locomotives shared many characteristics with the Baldwin Logging Mallets.  Like the logging Mallets, these were relatively small locomotives with driver diameters rarely going above fifty inches.    

    There were many interesting and unusual export Mallets, such as the tiny Ingenio Angelina "Milan," or the Colombian 2-8-8-2t which looked like a stretched Uintah #50.  It is also interesting to note that the first Mallets built by Baldwin were four small 0-6-6-0s for the American Railroad of Puerto Rico.

    At the moment, this page will highlight only a few of the many export Mallets, but as time goes by this page will hopefully grow.  Unlike the logging Mallets roster, on this page if a railroad ordered a group of identical locomotives they will all be grouped on the same page.

Photos of several of the export Mallets can be seen at Bruce Pryor's Narrow Gauge From Off the Beaten Path.
