| The C38 class was a class of steam locomotive built and operated by the New South Wales Government Railways in Australia. Built from 1943, the 30 locomotives in the class were designed to haul express trains and replace the C36 class on these premium workings. They were the first NSW locomotives to use the popular Pacific 4-6-2 wheel arrangement. They suffered many delays during construction - mostly due to the Second World War. 3801 was the first engine completed and entered service in January 1943. The last in the class, 3830 entered service in November 1949.|
