Nord3_1102_Mulh01.jpg (160352 bytes)

Nord 3.1102, a (2'C2') prototype built 1911 at the workshops of Compagnie du Nord, designed by Gaston du Bousquet. It was one of two locomotives, highly advanced for their time, and the origin of the name "Baltic" as they were intended for the Nord-Express to St. Peterburg. The intention was to pull a train of 400 to 430 t with 120 km/h. It was also one of the first to combine an overheating boiler and compound engine. Length 12.6 m (without tender), weight 113 t. Until 1920 the locomotives were used with express trains to Calais and Belgium, then moved to heavy passenger trains with frequent stops. In 1926 they were stored at Compiègne, experimentally converted to oil heating. For the World Exhibition of 1937 in Paris, it was cut up to demonstrate its interior. The tender has not been conserved.

Nord701_Mulh01.jpg (128204 bytes)

Nord 701, built 1885 by SACM. This is the world's first compound steam locomotive, designed by Alfred de Glehn, inspired by compound ship engines. The 701 pioneered the arrangement of two inner high-pressure cylinders and two outer low-pressure cylinders. Weight 41.45 t, length 15.63 m, diameter of driving wheels 2.114 m. Originally this was an 1110 (1'Bo) and the two driving axles were not coupled, each individually driven by a pair of cylinders. This however lead to wheelslip problems and the two driving axles were coupled by side rods, then in 1892 the locomotive received a front bogie, transforming it to 220 (2'B). It is painted in the green colour used by the Nord for fast locomotives before 1900.
