Five new three-cylinder 4-6-0 engines,  Nos. 840 to 844, were in service.

Great Eastern Ry. 88
No. 1270, the first of the 0-6-0 goods engines with 1500 class boilers was at work. New 4-6-0 express engines up to No. 1562 were at work.

[Rohilkund-Kumaon Ry. errata]. 88
Referring to the illustrated description of the goods engine for the Rohilkund-Kumaon Ry., on page 62 of our last issue, Messrs. W. G. Bagnall, Ltd., draw our attention to the fact that the weight given of 46½ tons, is the total for the engine and tender, the engine accounting for 23¨ tons, and the tender 23 tons full. The coupled wheels were 3 ft. 7 in. dia. instead of,3 ft. 7½ in. as stated.

Great Northern Ry. 88
An articulated bogie train had been put into service in the London district. In the third-class carriages there were no cushions to steal or cut, their place being taken by wooden lathed seats. There were no window straps, simply horizontal iron bars attached to the window sashes, and long thin metal rods took the place of the usual net racks. Ten new 0-6-0 goods engines Nos. 616 to 625, were built at Doncaster towards the end of 1919. There were now 105 of this class in service, Nos. 521 to 625. Kitson & Co., Ltd. of Leeds were to build twenty-five 2-6-0 mixed traffic engines for the G.N.Ry., and an order for fifty locomotives had also been placed with the North British Loco. Co., Ltd.

Correspondence. 92

[Some early English locomotives on the Danish Railways. Dorph. 92
Eleven 0-6-0 locomotives out of twelve which were built in the years 1868 and 1869 by Stephensons, of Newcastle, were still maintaining the traffic on the Danish State Railways between Oddesund-Thisted and Skive-Sallingsund in Jutland. The locomotives hauled trains up to 460 tons (mixed traffic) with 45 km. an hour as maximum speed. The cylinders were 406, mm. by 560 mm. stroke and the coupled wheels 1384 mm. in diameter; the pressure is 10 kg./cm2 and the weight 28.3 tons in working order without tender. The boilers had been renewed and the tenders altered to get a greater water capacity, but the original construction was unaltered.
One of the locomotives was for some years altered to compound, without success, and then rebuilt. These old locomotives have been cheaper in coal consumption than many locomotives of a later construction and were still doing excellent service. Writer was Mechanical Engineer. De Danske Statsbaner, Aarhus.

(The engines referred to by your correspondent were Nos. 27 to 36, 43 and 44, and were mentioned in the Locomotive Mag, 4 (1899), page 20. Of these No. 28 has been broken up, and the two last mentioned have been renumbered 37 and 38. They have outside cylinders, slightly inclined, and all the wheels, 4 ft. 6 in. diameter, are in front of the fire-box. See annexed illustration of No. 36. E.L.A.)

[Woolwich 2-6-0s] 92
The Government were seeking customers for the 100 2-6-0 engines of the South Eastern & Chatham type being built at Woolwich, and were asking £10,000 each for the same. It is doubtful whether the Midland would accept any of these, as in some instances it is understood they encroach upon the loading gauge of that railway. The Midland are badly in need of engines, and have built no fewer than seventy 0-6-0 superheated goods engines of their No. 4 class (Nos. 3831 to 3901), and it is rumoured many more will be built in the near future. Most of the locomotive shops at Derby will shortly be working overtime in order to cope with the heavy increase of work in making up arrears of maintenance.

Institution of Locomotive Engineers. 92
The officers for the 1920-1921 were :-President: Mr. W. Pickersgill, C.B.E" Caledonian Ry., Glasgow. Vice-Presidents: Mr. H. N. Gresley, C.B.E., G.N.Ry., Mr. C. J. Bowen Cooke, C.B.E., L. & N.W. Ry., and Col. E. Kitson-Clark, Airedale Foundry, Leeds. Council: Messrs J. Clayton (S.E. & & C.R.), W. A. Lelean, of Westminster, B. K. Field (L.B. & S.C.R.), S. H. Whitelegg (M.R.), A. H. Panter (L.B. & S.C.R.), H. W. Dearberg (Beckton), G. Mitchell (Vacuum Brake Co.), H. Kelway Bamber (Leeds Forge Co.), R. P. C. Sanderson (Baldwin Loco. Works), F. Turner (Woolwich Arsenal), A. Cobb (S.E. & C.R.), A. C. Damant (G.E.R.), H. Holcroft (S.E. & C.R.).

North Eastern Ry.
Amongst recent withdrawals from service we notice three of the later series of Mr. Fletcher's 7 ft. express engines-Nos. 75, 362 and 365, as well as 329 and 909 of the earlier ones. Another interesting engine to go is No. 364, which was traditionallv built for the Leeds Northern Ry. by Messrs. Kitson, Thompson & Hewitson in 1849, and rebuilt at Leeds in 1875. We do not suppose, however, there was much of the original engine left. 'Ve also note the dis- appearance of three of the famous single drivers, two of the 7 ft. 7 in. (1524 and 1525) and one 7 ft. 1 in. (1527).

There are now nearly 200 of the 2-6-0 mixed traffic engines in service. Seven more of the 4700 class 2-8-0 mixed traffic engines are under construction at Swindon, Nos. 4701 and 4702 being in service. Several 0-6-0 goods engines are being repaired at the Parkhead Works of Messrs. Beardmore. The 4-4-0 tender engines Brunel, Gooch, Armstrong and Charles Saunders had been rebuilt with standard driving wheels 6ft. 8¾ in. diameter, similar to the Flower class. The single line viaduct approaching Penzance of fifty-one spans, supported on timber piles, is being replaced by a solid embankment, sufficiently wide to take a double road, as well as a future engine line connecting Penzance station and the sheds at Ponsandane. When completed the large 4-6-0 engines will be permitted to run through to Penzance; at present they are not allowed beyond Marazion.
