The only things that I have found about these locos are the following:However, I do not know if we are talking about the same locos.Either I write about a completely different locomotive or christo has made a mistake in both the numbering and the year.

Let's start;

Built by Lokomotivfabrik Krauss Munchen, these 5 (4+1) locos were introduced to the SPAP in 1884 and 1885 and were numbered A1-A5.Their wheel arrangement was 0-4-0T,making them able to service on the whole network, as Works Locos (ΑΤΜΑΜΑΞΑ ΕΡΓΩΝ) and later on local trains.Their names were;

ΑΧΑ'Ι'Α
ΡΙΟΝ
ΜΥΛΟΙ
ΤΙΡΥΝΣ
ΜΕΣΟΛΟΓΓΙΟΝ

The first four, as I wrote before, where introduced to the SPAP in 1884 and the last loco in 1885.Now, only ΤΙΡΥΝΣ remains in excellent condition in Athens Railway Museum, with all the other locos being either scrapped or thrown in Kakia Skala :twisted:

As for the technical part:

CYLINDER DIAMETER: d=350mm
WEIGHT: 13.200 kg
LENGTH: 5, 250 m
WATER TANK: 1,7m^3
COAL TANK: 650kg with no tender (THE FIRST SPAP LOCOS WITH TENDER WERE THE ''E'' CLASS, INTRODUCED IN 1887)
PRESSURE: 8atm

Works Numbers: Locos 1 - 4 were 1367 -70 of 1884 and Loco 5 was 1657 of 1885

Georgegala,

It is very difficult and time consuming dwelling into railway archeology and answering the many questions you pose daily. The person best to help you might be Jason. However, since I am asked I will do what I can.
There were 5 more Krauss engines for the Peloponnese with the same wheel arrangement of 0-4-0. Now which one of the total of ten locos had what name you have to ask a real gricer which unfortunately I am only a pretend one :D .

Three locos for the Pyrgos Katakolon Railway with works numbers 1191-93 of 1882 and
Two locos for SPAP with works numbers 1322-23 of 1883

christo.

PS. I added some info to your previous post and changed the title as you wished.
