Beyer Peacock Online

All,

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:

http://emu.msim.org.uk/htmlmn/collections/online/search.php?type=images

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

Here's an interesting one for Frank:
http://emu.msim.org.uk/htmlmn/web/pages/common/imagedisplay_mosi.php?&irn=15803

A 2-4-0 with the description "Norwegian Government Railway
(Australia)".

Going to http://www.beyerpeacock.co.uk/loco%20list/Customerlist.PDF 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?
