North Western Railway Ellis: Off the North Western Railway from Skipton to Lancaster came ten passenger engines, all probably single-wheelers, and four goods Ahrons, in The British Steam Railway Locomotive from toillustrates an example from this railway in a pretty little inside-cylindered, inside-framed passenger tank engine, built by Fairbairn in This engine and her sisters worked the ordinary light passenger trains to Lancaster and to Morecambe in preMidland days, and though very diminutive, were notable in having solid welded plate frames.
Cylinders were only Midland paper Similar engines went to Ireland, and in a larger version they worked much of Midland paper traffic on the Dublin, WickIow and Wexford Railway.
The first locomotive to work in Brazil, the Baroneza. The gauge difference would have presented no problems; the design could have been adapted to the 7ft.
|Baguio Midland Courier||On a prominent intersection in Midland, Dahlia Hill is at the center of a group of cultural and historical Midland attractions.|
Baroneza has fortunately survived as an historical relic, and also figures in the emblem of the Central Railway of Brazil. She serves us here to illustrate the appearance of the " Little" North Western passenger tank engines, as originally built.
Superficial differences include the shape of the sandboxes which were separate from the splasher on the N. On the" Little" North Western engines, Ahrons showed a Y -shaped double step, while Baroneza had this strengthened into a delta shape.
In Kirtley's time, certain of the N. R's Lilliputian locomotives were rebuilt and employed on various remoter branches of the M. Matthew Kirtley's locomotives Radford page 21 observes that "Matthew Kirtley Midland paper faced immediately with the problem of bringing some kind of order and standardisation to the great miscellany of locomotive types which he had inherited from the three old companies.
Of the good engines available, a considerable number were even then not fit for further use and were immediately laid up, either for sale or breaking up.
Of those fit for traffic, several were daily being stretched in capacity hauling the heavier and heavier trains. Kirtley weighed up the various arguments concerning the most suitable number of wheels to be provided on a locomotive and came out in favour of the six-wheeled type, having previously had first hand experience of the unsteadiness of the four-wheeled, single-driver machines whilst working with them on the London and Birmingham Railway.
These latter types [four-wheeled] he quickly relegated to unimportant work, and all further orders were for six-wheeled locomotives. Further, the cost of repairs was considerably inflated when more serious repairs required locomotives to be retuned to their makers, who might be busy with new orders and long delays occurred.
Summerson Volume 1 estimated that Kirtley was responsible for about locomotives: A sidelight on the state of the locomotive stock in these early days is provided by a minute of the Locomotive and Stores Committee dated November 5,which authorised Kirtley to accept the offer of Henry Wright of Saltley Works, Birmingham to provide 10 or 12 engines complete with drivers, firemen and cleaners to work trains between Derby and Birmingham at 1s per mile the Midland Company to provide only the coke, Wright providing all other stores.
All these factors convinced Kirtley that the existing complex of workshops at Derby should be further developed into an organisation capable not only of dealing with all repairs, but of also building the new locomotives he so urgently required.
In the short term he tried to ensure that all new locomotives delivered were either to his own designs or that he had approved the makers' plans for new contract-built engines. Expansion of the workshop facilities began almost immediately.
His first request was for more covered engine accommodation, and in his report of December 2, he recommended that a second roundhouse be erected to house 16 locomotives allocated to the Derby depot for which no shed was available, pointing out that they were being adversely affected by standing out in all weathers during the winter time.
This new roundhouse, together with additional repair facilities, was completed and brought into use in mid-February, At the half year ending December 31,Kirtley reported a total locomotive stock ofincluding 10 new engines received in the previous six months.
Ninety-five of these were in good working order, and there were 23 engines awaiting repairs, the remaining four engines being laid up for sale.
Five new fireboxes, ten complete sets of tubes and nine cranked axles had been supplied in the half year. Further workshop improvements were put in hand, and provision for warming the workshops "either by steam or hot water under the inspection of Mr Barwell and Mr Kirtley" was also made in December, The work of the various departments set up for each of the three old companies was rationalised until, by the yearKirtley was in a position to build his first new locomotive.
It can be imagined that Matthew Kirtley had, from these various railways, about as mixed a lot of bequests in the locomotive line as ever confronted a locomotive superintendent. From the North Midland Railway, which numbered its engines in series according to type, came thirty-two mail and passenger engines, alland numbered by that company from 1 upwards.
There were fourteen goods engines, consisting of ten Nos. Baxter considers Journal of the Stephenson Locomotive Society, March, it probable that Kirtley, though a Birmingham and Derby Junction man, appropriated the North Midland numbering system for use in the Midland Railway stock list.I have developed a very strong working relationship with the VCPA over the last decade.
