  • Scope and Content
    The collection comprises records regarding the production of locomotives and tenders. The engineering drawings are general arrangement drawings of locomotives and tenders produced between 1917 and 1938, and are therefore no more than a selection of the output of the company during the later decades of its existence. The locomotives represented in this series were mainly for export. The locomotive records books cover the period 1839 - 1938 and contain technical information regarding specific orders; these volumes also contain small-format images of the completed rail vehicles.
  • Extent
    94 flat drawings and 2 volumes
  • Physical description
    The drawings are in full colour on a stiff linen backed paper. They are in a fair condition. The volumes are bound and in a good condition.
