LM051 The GER Little Sharpies

  • LM051   The GER Little Sharpies

NEW APRIL 2019. This file contains material from the 1943 volume of the magazine Railways.

The main item is a set of two articles by K A C R Nunn entitled 'The Little Sharpies of the GER (with some latter-day recollections)'. These were 2-4-0 locomotives designed by Samuel Johnson and built by Sharp Stewart of Manchester. The class first appeared in 1867, and at the time of the articles the last one had been scrapped almost thirty years back. Nevertheless there are several photographs of them taken beween 1901 and 1911, mainly on branches in Norfolk and especially around Wymondham.

Other snippets of GE interest are in the file including a few wartime items, among which one provides a current slant on the incident when a B12 disappeared into a bomb crater near Ingatestone. There is also a pre-1914 photograph of a scene on the Southwold Railway at Blythburgh.

Finally there is an illustrated article on early Holden locomotives of the GER, with a description of the sort of performances some of them achieved.
