Beyer Peacock Online

John Dennis <jdennis@...>


People might know about this, but I have just recently been made aware
that the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) now has
Beyer Peacock drawings and photos online. The search page is here:

and enter "Beyer Peacock" in the drop down list of collection names.

Here's an interesting one for Frank:

A 2-4-0 with the description "Norwegian Government Railway

Going to I
found that order number 6245 was for two locomotives of 3'6" gauge,
given builders numbers 2249-50.

Is the "(Australia)" annotation an error, or did Australia have a pair
of these 2-4-0Ts?
