Accidents on the L. & N.W. Ry. 1.
On 18 October an excursion train from Wolverhampton ran into a goods train at Portobello Jn., near the former place. The engine of the excursion was a rebuilt DX. goods engine No. 278, the driver (Humphreys) and fireman being killed. On 8 December, as the up Irish Mail, drawn by No. 1904 Rob Roy (driver Taylor) was approaching Norton Bridge on the fast line about 03.20 a sleeping saloon was derailed by coming in contact with some obstruction, and breaking loose on reaching the junction with the N.S.R., came into violent collision with engine No. 1377, 'which was drawing a goods train on the up slow. The damage to engine No: 1377 and the rolling stock generally was very great, and one passenger was killed.
G.E.R. suburban tank engines. 1
Ten more four-coupled bogie condensing tank engines of the 1100 class had been built at Stratford, numbered 1110 to 1119, and were all working on the suburban service, the first four being stationed at Palace Gates.
New express engines for the Dutch State Rys. 1
Beyer, Peacock & Co. delivered in Holland some new 7-ft. four-coupled express engines with leading bogies and cylinders 18-in. by 20-in. The boilers were pressed to 160 lbs. per sq. in. and contained 87 Serve tubes of 2¾-in. outside diameter. There were to be 35 engines in all, Nos. 801 to 835, and about ten of them were at work.

Described as twenty five locomotives similar to No. 706. Dubs supplied Nos. 702-19/721-7 (WN 3746-). These must have been supplied with cross tubes in the firebox as further locomotives of type, but without water tubes were constructed at Nine Elms: Nos. 113-22 and 280-4.
A novel goods depot. 10. illustration.
Photograph of the new goods depot built at Zurich, Switzerland. It represented a novel arrangement of sidings. One side is for inwards, while the other is reserved for outwards traffic. Each loading "bay" or "dock" accommodated two long wagons, and any of these, of course, can be put in or removed without disturbing the work in progress on others in the shed. Delay often arises m goods sheds due to the difference in time occupied in loading or unloading various wagons, this difficulty seems to be quite eliminated in the depot shown.
The visit of the German Emperor. 10.
H.I.M. the Emperor of Germany arrived at Windsor on 20 November, the royal train being drawn by No. 3292 Badminton, whilst No. 3050 Royal Sovereign was pilot in advance. On 25 November the Emperor journeyed to Sandringham, the special being hauled through from Windsor to Lynn by the G.E.R. engine No. 761. The G.W.R. single Royal Sovereign again acted as pilot as far as Victoria Park, from which point No. 763 G.E.R. preceded the royal train. On Monday, 27 November, the Emperor embarked at Sheerness, travelling by special train from Wolferton. Between Lvnn and Liverpool St. the G.E R. used the same train, engine and pilot as on the down journey, whilst from Liverpool St. to Port Victoria No. 500 G.E.R. hauled the special, No. 499 being the advance pilot. On each occasion the Emperor's train was worked between Lynn and Wolferton by engine No. 481.

F. Moore:[not mentioned in text] Our coloured supplement. latest express passenger engine Bessemer and is, we believe, for accuracy and minuteness of detail quite equal to any of its predecessors [i.e. Supplements not locomotive]. The Bessemer was designed by R.J. Billinton, the locomotive superintendent of the L. B. & S. C. R., and built at Brighton Works in 1898, and has since become noted for its successful running of the Pullman Limited, doing the 50¾ miles from Victoria to Brighton in the level hour. The diameter of the driving wheels was 6-ft. 9-in., the cylinders 18-in. by 20-in., the boiler had 1,460 ft2 of heating surface, and the weight of engine and tender in working order was 77 tons 14 cwt. Further particulars will be found on page 135 of our last volume, at the conclusion of our series of articles on the locomotive history of the L. B. & S. C. R., containing an illustration and description of every engine on the line.

L. & Y. R. locomotives. 17.
Out of an order for twenty of the standard 6-coupled goods engines the following had been completed at Horwich: Nos. 426, 446, 462, 468, 473, 485, 490, 492, 520, 610 and 681. These engines are painted in a similar manner to the passenger engines with a thick red line and two white lines. All goods engines would be thus treated as repainted. One of the 10-wheelers, No. 737, was fitted with a superheater having the same number of tubes as in the boiler those in the latter are only 12-ft. long instead of 15-ft. This engine wasfitted with a screen for taking indicator diagrams. A new type of 8-coupled goods would shortly be built having 4-ft. 6-in. wheels and cylinders 20-in. by 26-in.

The Waterford & Central Ireland Ry,
On 1 September 1900 the G. S. & W. Ry. took over the working of this company. Up to the time of writing no alteration has been made in the rolling stock, but owing to its antiquated type it is probable that most of it will be condemned to the scrap heap. The engines of this company are painted a dark green with black bands and light green lines with a red inner line. The framings are brown with black border and red line. Tne carriage stock is a dark lake with vermilion lines and gold lettering shaded with red and black, and the goods stock is dark slate with white letters.
Rhymney Ry. engines.
During the past twelve months a number of six-coupled radial side tank engines with double frames have been delivered to this company. Nos. 87 to 92 came from Messrs. Hudswell, Clarke & Co. (makers' Nos. 510 to 515) in 1899, and Nos. 93 to 95 (makers' Nos. 547 to 549) from the same firm in this year, whilst Messrs. Neilson, Reid & Co. are now delivering an order for ten more, of which Nos. 96 to 103 (makers' Nos. 5711 to 5718) are already to hand.
L. & Y. R. eight-coupled engines.
The location of the new mineral engines, which are rated to take a load 45 per cent. greater than that of the standard six-coupled engines, is as follows: Nos. 91, 325, 383, 392, 407, 500 and 659 at Wigan, No. 381 at Bury, No. 448 at Aintree, No. 443 at Sandhills, No. 463 at Lower Darwen, No. 395 at Goole, and No. 635 at Newton Heath.

Barry Ry. locos.
No less than 33 new engines have been added to the stock of the Barry Ry. during the last twelve months. Nos. 92 to 98, standard double-ended side tank passenger engines, were built by Messrs.
