An image of the tank engine 'Burra' ordered in May 1923 by Austral Engineering Supply Company, Sydney, Australia (TWAM ref. DS.RSH/1/1/4). Engine nos. 3574. Built for: Austral Engineering Supply Company, Sydney, Australia. Date ordered 17 May 1923. Gauge of Railway: 2 feet. Principal Dimensions. Cylinders dia: 8 inches. Cylinders stroke: 12 inches. Wheels (Dia. of coupled): 2 feet. Wheel-base - total: 4 feet. Water capacity: 140 gallons. Fuel capacity: 10 cubic feet = 0.23 tons. Heating surface ? total: 136.4 square feet. Grate area: 2.95 square feet. Working pressure: 160 lbs per square inch. Total weight in working order: 7.46 tons. Tractive force taking 90% of the working pressure: 4608 lbs. Tractive force taking 75% of the working pressure: 3840 lbs. Approximate shipping space: 614 cubic feet. Approximate gross weight packed for shipment: 6.875 tons. Code Word: BURRA This album celebrates the achievements of the Hawthorn Leslie locomotive works at Forth Banks, Newcastle upon Tyne. The works were established by Robert Hawthorn in January 1817 and in 1820 his brother, William Hawthorn joined him as a partner. The firm initially manufactured stationary engines but within a few years diversified into marine engineering and in 1831 produced its first locomotive engine for the Stockton and Darlington Railway. In 1870 the firm established a separate marine engine works on the River Tyne at St. Peter?s and from 1882 the Forth Banks Works became devoted entirely to the manufacture of locomotives. In 1885 the firm amalgamated with the shipyard of Andrew Leslie at Hebburn, creating the world-famous shipbuilding and engineering company R and W. Hawthorn, Leslie & Co. Ltd. The Forth Banks Works of Hawthorn Leslie produced engines of all types and sizes for railways around the world. The output of the Forth Banks Works included a large number of tank engines for industrial works and collieries and the firm established a speciality in the construction of crane locomotives. The images in this set date from the early twentieth century and are a reminder of Newcastle upon Tyne?s proud industrial heritage. They are taken from a series of photograph albums produced by Hawthorn Leslie. The albums were kindly donated to Tyne & Wear Archives by Alan C. Baker and T.D. Allen Civil.

Passenger locomotive for the London & North Eastern Railway Company

Description

An image of a passenger locomotive, one of 13 ordered by the London & North Eastern Railway Company in 1924 (TWAM ref. DS.RSH/1/1/4). Engine nos. 3616-3628. Built for: London & North Eastern Railway Company. Date ordered 4 December 1924. Gauge of Railway: 4 feet 8 inches. Principal Dimensions. Cylinders dia: 20 inches. Cylinders stroke: 26 inches. Wheels (Dia. of coupled): 5 feet 7 inches. Wheel-base - total: 33 feet 1 inch. Water capacity: 2100 gallons. Fuel capacity: 180 cubic feet = 4 tons. Heating surface ? total: 1280 square feet. Grate area: 21 square feet. Working pressure: 180 lbs per square inch. Total weight in working order: 90.51 tons. Tractive force taking 90% of the working pressure: 25137 lbs. Tractive force taking 75% of the working pressure: 20947 lbs. Approximate shipping space: not given. Approximate gross weight packed for shipment: not given. Code Word: GORTON This album celebrates the achievements of the Hawthorn Leslie locomotive works at Forth Banks, Newcastle upon Tyne. The works were established by Robert Hawthorn in January 1817 and in 1820 his brother, William Hawthorn joined him as a partner. The firm initially manufactured stationary engines but within a few years diversified into marine engineering and in 1831 produced its first locomotive engine for the Stockton and Darlington Railway. In 1870 the firm established a separate marine engine works on the River Tyne at St. Peter?s and from 1882 the Forth Banks Works became devoted entirely to the manufacture of locomotives. In 1885 the firm amalgamated with the shipyard of Andrew Leslie at Hebburn, creating the world-famous shipbuilding and engineering company R and W. Hawthorn, Leslie & Co. Ltd. The Forth Banks Works of Hawthorn Leslie produced engines of all types and sizes for railways around the world. The output of the Forth Banks Works included a large number of tank engines for industrial works and collieries and the firm established a speciality in the construction of crane locomotives. The images in this set date from the early twentieth century and are a reminder of Newcastle upon Tyne?s proud industrial heritage. They are taken from a series of photograph albums produced by Hawthorn Leslie. The albums were kindly donated to Tyne & Wear Archives by Alan C. Baker and T.D. Allen Civil.
