RE054: Ransomes and Rapier of Ipswich, 1909.

NEW MARCH 2021. During the first decade of the twentieth century, the Railway Magazine ran a series of articles about firms who trade with railways. In June 1909 it was the turn of Messrs Ransomes and Rapier, Ltd., Ipswich. It was not just their trade which was of benefit to the railways: they made large engineering items such as turntables, hydraulic buffer stops and breakdown cranes.

The first six pages of this twelve-page file are devoted to that article. Some relevant pages from our scans of the LNER Magazine make up the rest of it. One is entitled Industrial Ipswich (1931), the second describes one of their new turntables at York (1932), and finally come two photographs of a huge boom for a mechanical excavator leaving their works by rail (1934).

The file is word-searchable and has bookmarks. 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.
