Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, 0-6-0 represents the wheel arrangement of no leading wheels, six powered and coupled driving wheels on three axles, and no trailing wheels. In the UIC classification popular in Europe, the same arrangement is written as C (if the wheels are coupled with rods or gears) or Co (if they are independently driven). Because they lack leading wheels (sometimes called guiding axles) at the front, 0-6-0 locomotives are not stable at high speed, so are mostly used on trains where high speed is unnecessary. But the lack of unpowered axles means that locomotives of this type have all their weight pressing down on their driving wheels, and consequently such locomotives have high tractive efforts and factors of adhesion, making them comparatively strong engines for their size, weight and fuel consumption.
