  • MG006 GER-related extracts from the Locomotive Magazine 1902-1903

NEW OCTOBER 2017.  This file contains articles of GER interest taken from the pages of the Locomotive Magazine for 1902 and 1903.  This periodical was always published monthly except for 1903, when as a short-lived experiment it was brought out weekly.

The following items are featured:-

A mystery locomotive which had been photographed at Stratford in around 1860 (with a very interesting answer which solved it); an account of part of the 1845 enquiry into the choice of gauge, where Braithwaite is questioned about the 5-foot gauge he picked for the ECR, with an input from Bidder as well; the opening of the GER loop from Woodford to Ilford via Fairlop (with four photographs); part of an article on horse-worked railways, in which its occurrence on the GER branch betweern Huntingdon and St Ives is described; the steam traversers in use at Stratford Works and at Temple Mills wagon works (with a photograph of each); a photograph of Temple Mills machine and wheel shop; an article approving the enlightened study leave afforded by the GER at the Stratford Mechanics Institute; a photograph and description of a model valve gear at Stratford; a note reporting the opening of the new Norfolk and Suffolk Joint line from Yarmouth to Lowestoft; an article about a feed-water heater Gooch used on the locomotives of the ECR (with drawings); and one entiled 'Locomotives of the North London Railway' (with three photographs, including a large one of their locomotive yard and workshops at Bow back in the 'sixties).

The file has bookmarks to the separate items. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
