Ottoman Empire | 1889 | 8 produced
Locomotive Magazine, October 1906

In 1889, Sharp, Stewart & Co. supplied the Ottoman Railway Company with six locomotives, numbered 40 to 45, as their first goods tender locomotives. The following year, two more followed with the numbers 46 and 47 and two more examples were ultimately not accepted and delivered to the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. Except for the cow catcher, these locomotives were mainly of British design and could therefore be used directly by the LT&SR without any problems.

In 1935, the Ottoman Railway Company, originally under British administration, passed to the Turkish state. There the eight engines were given the numbers 33 011 to 018. The last engine was probably scrapped in 1956.
