In the genus XIV , the associated Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg Friedrich-Franz Railway eight identical tank locomotives , which Lenz & Co. acquired for different tracks operated by it. From 1895, the locomotives were given the track numbers 510 to 514 and 516 to 518. From 1910, the machines were sorted into type T 2 . The locomotives were decommissioned between 1911 and 1918.

A similar locomotive that was originally delivered to the Altdamm-Colberger Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft was also classified in this class .


The company Lenz & Co. was commissioned to operate several railway lines in Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Between 1883 and 1885, eight tank locomotives were purchased from Vulcan for operation .

The Güstrow-Plauer Railway received one locomotive from the locomotives delivered in 1883 . This was given the train number 4. After the takeover by the Friedrich-Franz-Eisenbahn in 1890 it was given the train number 117, from 1895 the number 510. Four locomotives came to the Wismar-Rostock Railway . They were given track numbers 1 to 4, later numbers 11 to 14. After being taken over by the Friedrich-Franz-Eisenbahn in 1890, they were classified as numbers 120 to 123, and from 1895 as numbers 511 to 514.

In 1884/1885 three locomotives were delivered to the Teterow-Gnoien Railway . The locomotives were given track numbers 1 to 3, later 21 to 23. After being taken over by the Friedrich-Franz-Eisenbahn, they were classified as numbers 516 to 518.

The locomotives were retired between 1911 and 1918.

Constructive features

The locomotives were largely identical. Differences were only due to the different locations. The machines had an internal sheet metal frame. The long boiler consisted of two shots. The steam dome with the safety valve sat on the front part of the boiler.

The external, horizontally arranged two-cylinder wet steam engine worked on the rear wheelset. The valve boxes were attached above the cylinders. The external Allan control had crossed eccentric rods.

The suspension was provided by leaf spring packages above the axle sets. The grinder air brake acted on both sets of wheels from the front. The existing lever brake was later removed.

The sandpit sat on the rear boiler section and sanded between both axles. The coal supply was housed in containers in front of the driver's cab. The water boxes in front of it reached up to the smoke chamber .
