Martley 0-6-0 supplied R. & W. Hawthorn & Co. in July 1860, identical to ones supplied to Blyth & Tyne Railway. Hercules (WN 971) and Ajax (WN 973). They had 4ft 6in coupled wheels and 16 x 24in cylinders. Two outside cylinder 4-4-0 came from the same manufacturer: AEolus and Bacchus and were followed in 1861 by Vulcan and Comus. These had been ordered by a South American Railway and were painted yellow. See letter from F.S.H. on page 32.

Great Central Locomotives. 4
Five standard six-coupled goods engines had left Gorton Works, Nos. 98 to 101 and 103. These engines were of the 74 class, and had 18½-in. cylinders and 5-ft. wheels; the tenders had a water capacity of 3000 gallons. They were painted black, lined out with red and white lines, and have oblong number plates. The old engines bearing these numbers had been broken up. The No. 561 class, Parker's single framed four-coupled bogie expresses, were all being fitted with extended smokeboxes and new chimneys. They were also being lined in the new style for passenger engines on the G. C. R., viz., a thin white line in place of the previous broad yellow one. Nos. 565, 566 and 704 wwere already out thus treated. Several of Sacre's old double framed bogie passenger engines had been rebuilt with new boilers, extended smokeboxes and new chimneys, including No 426, 429, 434, 435 and 444. Two of the old 7-ft. 6-in. singles, Nos. 107 and 112, had also been rebuilt with new boilers, new chimneys, and extended smokeboxes of the cylindrical type. These engines were also being repainted and lined in the new style. Nos. 159 and 170, old six wheeled four-coupled double framed passenger tender engines, had been rebuilt with flush top boilers pitched higher, and fitted with injectors on the firebox fronts.

Erratum. 4
The engine used on the Canadian Pacific Royal Train illustrated in our December Issue was of the ten wheeled four-coupled type, and not as there stated.

Another enjrine of the T class had left the Gateshead Works; No. 2I22.

The "Perfection" Sight Feed Lubricator. 4. diagram
The lubricator was automatic and certain in action, with a visible feed easily and accurately adjusted. It supplied lubrication exactly jin accordance with the speed at which the engine was running, the oil being perfectly atomized and freely distributed amongst the steam. ~ These lubricators were used on the express locomotives of the Austrian and Hungarian State Rys., and were heing introduced into Britain by Klein Bros., of Vienna

The locomotives of the London and India Dock Co. 5-6. 5 illustrations
Three ex-LNWR 2-4-0T engines, Nos. 1819, 1927 and 1911 which were obtained in 1881, numbered 5-7 in the Dock Co's list. They had originated as Northern Division tender locomotives: 238 President, 250 John O' Gaunt and 431 Hercules. They had outside 15 x 20in cylinders and 5ft coupled wheels. They were painted green with black bands and yellow lines and lettered Royal Albert Dock and used on passenger services between Custom House and Gallions until 30 June 1896 when the Great Eastern took over the service and the old locomotives were scrapped. Two Lucas & Aird locomotives used in the construction of the Royal Albert Dock were, after the works were completed, stored in a wooden shed which was destroyed by fire in 1880. One of the locomotives Chelsea only worked for a short time after the fire, but the other was purchased by the Dock Co. in 1881 and was extensively repaired under the engineer Adamson and ran until 1898. The earlier history of this locomotive appeared to have been lost, but it as employed by G. Wise, a contractor on the construction of Millwall Docks, then on the harbour works at Sharpness. It was then acquired by Lucas & Aird  and worked on aa Portsmouth Harbour extension and whilst there was fitted with a new crank axle by the LBSCR in 1875. After which it was brought to London to work on the construction of the Albert Dock (Fig. 4 shows it in this state). No. 8 was usually known as Long Wind and as the most powerful locomotive owned by the Dock Co. at this period.  Nos. 11, 12 and 13 were purchased secondhand from Liverpool. They were Fox, Walker & Co, products of 1872, 1873 and 1875 and had 3ft 6in wheels, 13 x 20in cylinders and worked at 120 psi. No. 12 illustrated in Fig. 5. No. 14 was a 0-4-0ST with 3ft 3in diameter disc wheels supplied by the Yorkshire Engine Co. WN 284/1876 (Fig. 6). Fig. 7 shows a very small 0-4-0ST with 2ft 6in wheels and 9 x 15in cylnders bult by the Falcon Engine Works at Loughborough in 1884.

In December 1841 Stothert & Slaughter of Bristol delivered two  four-coupled goods engines of the 2-4-0 type with inside cylinders and outside bearings and weere probably identical to Nos, 143 and 144 (post change of gauge) subsequently renumbered 218 and 219. In readiness for the opening of the main line to Colchester nine Bury & Co. 2-2-0 were purchased which were sllightly larger than earlier purchases. They had 5ft 6in driving wheels and 14 x 18in cylinders. Probable original numbers 18 to 26! (KPJ one appears to be missing). In Gooch period received Nos. 118, 119, 121, 122, 123, 125, 126, 127 and 128. Most were scrapped under Sinclair except No. 119 placed on a pedestal at the entrance to Stratford Works, but scrapped by Johnson..
