These locos were originally named, but a multitude of renumberings make matching names with numbers difficult. Amongst the names were 'Sud America', 'Cordoba', 'Salta', 'Tucuman', 'Parana', & 'Corrientes'.
Only 7 of these recorded here in 1911 and 1912. In 1911 two of them were recorded as numbered 9 and 15.
