BEYER, PEACOCK LOCOMOTIVE ORDER LIST by R. L. Hills

The list of the locomotive numbers built by Beyer, Peacock was compiled from the records which Richard Hills was able to save when Beyer, Peacock closed its Gorton Foundry and which became one of the major collections when he was able to open the North Western Museum of Science and Industry (MoSI) in Manchester in 1969. This list was printed originally in the Transactions of the Newcomen Society, Vol 40, 1967-68, but as such it was available only to members. Because the original list is virtually unobtainable, it was decided to reprint it and much time was spent in making a thorough revision. The book also includes an introduction based on the text of MoSI's old out of print Beyer, Peacock booklet.

36 pages plus section with 37 photos, ISBN 1 901613 00 3, 1997.

Out of Print.
