Britannia bridge across Menai Strait, c1890.
Christensen, Mike. Annan (Shawhill) and the Solway
Solway Junction Railway: constructed to link the Caledonian Railway at Kirtlebridge with the railways accessing to the Cumbrian iron ore supplies, thus avoiding congestion in Carlisle. The main feature of the line was a lightly constructed viaduct across the Solway which was seriously damaged by ice. The line opened to Annan in 1869, but the viaduct was not opened to passenger traffic until 8 July 1870. Running powers over the NBR Silloth branch from Kirkbride Junction to Abbey Junction enabled the CR to reach the Maryport & Carlile line at Brayton in Cumberland. Severe ice damage to the viaduct in Januatu 1881 led to closure until 1884. The viaduct closed during the latter part of WW1 and reopened briefly in 1920 and finally closed in 1921. The Annan branch survivedd longer..

Digby, Nigel J.L. Marriott reinforced concrete signal
William Marriott of the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway manufactured ferro-concrete fence posts, and from 1915 signal posts, at Melton Constable. During WW1 he was asked by the Government to develop building blocks for postwar housing. Suggests that when LNER took over the MGNJR the formers and instructions were taken to Lowestoft and "quietly forgotten" possibly due to patents rights, although before that concrete signal posts had been employed on other railways; Illus.: Melton Constable bracket signal 1922; Melton West advanced starter for Cromer line; Melton bracket signal and concrete telegraph post, portrait of William Marriott with beard (suggests wife forced him to grow one, but North Norfolk winters more likely cause). Marriott's "trade mark" on gate post; concrete casting works at Melton Constable; double arm signal at Eye Green (also concrete sleepers with bullhead rail). extant signal post at Sheringham West down distant (fully exposed to breezes from Spitsbergen) and diagram. See also letter from Allan Silbey (Issue 12 p. 69) concerning "siting committee" which gives interesting information on work of sighting committee to ensure correct location of colour light searchlight signals on Lea Valley Line, especially on sharp curves in Clapton area..

c1865: looking towards Saltash
Mullay, A.J. and Neil Parkhouse. Oil for coal:
the plan to convert British steam locomotives to oil fuel, 1945-48. 4-15;
Due to a severe shortage of coal in the immediate post-WW2 period the railways were encouraged to adopt oil-firing in spite of a shortage of finance to pay for the oil. This was part of Britain's desperate economic problems which faced or were created by the Attlee administration which came to power in 1945. The GWR anticipated Government policy and was taking measures to introduce oil firing and progress was sufficient to enable oil-firing to be become moderately widespread as is shown by the illustrations. The Southern was also fairly rapid in its implementation, again as is shown by the illustartions. The LMS converted several locomotives (mainly 7F 0-8-0s), but the LNER contribution was one locomotive (a WD 2-8-0). Inevitably, this is mainly about conversion on the Great Western Railway, Text mentions comversions on NCC (W class Mouls Nos. 100/1)

MacIntosh, Jim. Blue pigments and Caledonian
The Caledonian Railway appears to have painted its locomotives in both dark blue (which was probably very similar to the colour used by the Great Eastern Railway) and in a lighter shade. Amongst the problems which the author confronts are terminology (Royal blue, sky blue, the blue of the Saltire, etc) and the very great difference in paints based upon ultramarine and on Prussian blue. Like all colours perceptions are dependent upon, the presence of other colours (the background colour of numberplates, for instance, and in light intensities and overall backgrounds. Five books on paints and pigments contemporary with the CR have been analysed to show the different characteristics of paints based upn ultramarine and Prussian blue. The official records have also been surveyed. The article is illustrated in both black & white and in colour. See also letter from KPJ (Issue 13 p. 60) concerning the quality of the lithographs reproduced in the Railway Magazine.

British express trains: a lantern lecture. 25-8.
A successful bid for several lots of lantern slides on e-Bay led to the acquistion of eight coloured lantern slides from about 1910 and the lecture notes which accompanied them. The slides are reproduced slightly larger than the originals. Most of the slides bear a strong similarity to "F. Moore paintings" and these probably formed the basis. Slide 8 is reproduced in reverse as an examination in a mirror will show. The colour illustrations are of a high standard as lantern slides, but not as reproductions of the locomotives and trains concerned: NER Atlantic picking up water; LBSCR Atlantic with Southern Belle; Midland compound with clerestory stock; Great Western Star with Dreadnough rolling stock; GER Claude Hamilton leaving Liverpool Street with Cromer express; Great Central Atlantic with express; SECR D class with American Car boat train; LNWR Precursor on visit to USA (that is reproduced back-to-front. Feature ends with a question relating to the unusual expression of speeds adopted in the notes which Graham Beare (Issue 17 page 38) attempts to resolve.: see letter from KPJ Issue 13 p, 60..
Some early notes on the Royal Albert Bridge,
Pope, Ian. The Forest of Dean Central
Broad gauge line which set out to exploit the supposed coal reserves in the centre of the Forest of Dean and hoped to construct a port for its coal exports at Brimspill on the River Severn (not shown on meager map), but ended at a junction with the South Wales Railway at Awre Junction. The line served collieries at Wallsend (homograph) and Howbeech and passed through Blakeney (Gloucs. and further homograph). The line beyond Blakeney closed in 1932 and the residual stub closed in 1949. See also letter from George Harris (13 page 60) who had walked along remains in 1988 who found broad gauge rails in situ: also photo. of Howbeach c1912. Further photographs of Wallsend Collier, Howbeech in Issue 21 page 32..

Pouteau Great Western corrections. Peter Rich
Claims that illustration in Issue 7 page 64 upper cannot be No. 6433 City of Bath as claimed in caption as the smokebox ring is tooo narrow; the nameplate is too far from the boiler, the buffers are of the wrong type and the front step is also doubtful, thus likely to be 1905. Also corrects caption notes to illustration on page 65 lower (Issue 7): the external piping was not for boiler feed, but for steam valves to injector; No. 530 illustrated in 7 p. 58 confirms chocolate livery and notes white or cream for cab interior and special lining applied. In Issue 9 notes that on page 74 lower train is probably for Birmingham and the North. Lastly in Issue 9 page 87 Rich comments on steam fountain visible in cab.

Turton, Keith. The early years of London's railway
coal trade. 4-39.
Much of the text is based on an article written by Hylton Dale, a former director of Charrington, Gardner & Locket, the oldest established firm in the London coal business published in the weekly trade paper Coal Merchant and Shipper on 30 October 1926. Turton notes that although there is an extensive literature on the sea-borne coal trade which used to exist between Northumberland and Durham and the Thames little has been written about railway involvement in bringing coal into London. Canal trade is briefly mentioned (Jack mentioned how coke for the Camden depot of the London & Birmingham Railway was brought by canal). Mentions the Company of Coal Meters which became the Coal Meters Committee; the Coal Factors Society; the Coal Porters Society and the Coal Exchange. George Locket was involved in bringing Welsh coal to Mitcham brewery. Samuel Plimsoll (1824-98) was a coal merchant who established the Yorkshire to London coal trade in association with the GNR and Messrs Newton & Chambers.In 1867 there was a House of Lords Parliamentary Inquiry into coal trade. Coal from Clay Cross was arriving via the Blackwall Railway in 1854. The incipient North London Railway was involved in bringing sea coal from Poplar Docks to locations in North London, but it was the Great Northern and Midland Railways which encouraged the railway transport of coal from the collieries to London (a trade which the GWR and LNWR had deliberately discouraged). See also letter from Michael J. Smith (14 p. 64): on page 22 herein there is a muddle concerning the North & South West Junction Railway: it did not provide access to the Widened Lines, but linked MR with LSWR. There is also muddle concerning access from the MR to the Widened Lines via King's Cross and misuse of Metropolitan for Metropolitan District Railway. The supposed River Ware (p. 29) must have been either the River Lea or the synonymous River Lee snorted Paul Humphries (14 p. 81) from banks of the Stort. Cyril Crawley (14 p. 81) argues that Park listed as coal depot was solely an access to gasworks. Letter from Keith Turton (Issue 19 page 52) gives further information about Samuel Plimsoll, and the wagons he employed for the London coal trade (information from Birmingham City Library, Archives & Heritage Section (Access 2006/24, boxes 1-292) and from the records of the Midland Wagon Co.. ...

Extensive correspondence in Issue 14 p.64: several (Nigel Lemon; Ron Allison and Michael Dunn) noted that Cargoes was written by John Masefield and not by Rudyard Kipling indicating that the Forest of Dean is not a leader in education); Harry Jack argues that the London & Birmingham Railway had a greater interest in the transport of coal than implied by Turton and opened sidings to handle coal at Kilburn in 1845 which received coal from Clay Cross and Ince Hall collieries. Larger fascilities were opened at Camden in 1851..
Swift, Peter H. The Drummond 'S11' Class 4-4-0s of
the London & South Western Railway. 40-53.
Mixed traffic design with 6ft coupled wheels and 5ft diameter boiler: fireboxes orginally fitted with cross water tubes, but feedwater heaters were not fitted. They had balanced crank axles. Intended for work west of Salisbury. All ten were superheated between 1920 and 1922. Their Scottish parallels are considered: the Caledonian 80 class of 1888, and Peter Drummond's Ben and Big Ben types of 1898 and 1908 for the Highland Railway. All locomotives in table are S11 unless noted otherwise (W indicates fitted with cross water tubes: E=extended smokebox). Nick Pomfret (Issue 14 p. 81) considers that the Plymouth photographs were taken by F. Pascoe.

Argues that Stroudley did design locomotives for Edinburgh & Glasgow Railway when his chief, W.S. Brown was ill. Briefly records Stroudley's stay at Inverness and how he replaced Craven's chaos by standard types at Brighton. Asserts that the tender 0-4-2 type did not suffer from the instability problems which plagued 0-4-4Ts, notably the LSWR M7 and GWR 3521 classes. Notes that restored Gladstone had been intended for Science Museum (but space was not available)

Virtually a facsimile reproduction of "rare" LNER publication from 1935: contains list of pick-up and drop-off points, such as "R.A.F. Station"; "Fir Tree"; "Park" and best of all "Ogle". The illustrations (most of very inferior resolution) include K3 No. 156 on express freight; pigs (more pigs in next Issue) and sheep (separate illus.) being loaded into LNER lorries; pea picking (looks like Steppes of Central Asia); sacks being loaded onto LNER lorry; Morris lorry being loaded; Ford lorry with parcels for village store (definitely pre-Tesco, about the only good feature); Fordson loading and unloading sacks; 33 lower: container being loaded and transhipped to railway flat lorry (stated to be Albion, but was an Associated Daimler: see letter from David Harvey in Issue 15 page 44; wholesaler distribution via LNER warehouse; cage containers being loaded into motor van; furniture removal; train ferry; control office (controller attempting to establish which "Carlton".

Text consists of letters to The Times from the 1840s onward and concern the dreadful conditions imposed upon the poor (some of the examples are very well known). Many of the illus. are also well known. Illus.: arrival of Eastern Counties Railway Christmas train at Shoreditch (Illustrated London News 1850); elevation and plan of LSWR 3rd class Parliamentary "carriage"; Euston and Birmingham Curzon Street shown at time of opening from LNWR postcards c1906; Reading station c1850; Punch cartoon rerlating to smoking; The Excursion Train Gallop by Frank Musgrave (cover); first class smoking carriage ECR (very well known, but so much better than One has to offer); Punch 3rd class carriage interior; Derby Day 1842 engraving.
Parkhouse, Neil and Miles, John. Bridge improvements

Soar Lane bridge (Leicester & Swannington Railway: ornate cast iron across Soar); Cleeve bridge (road over: timber truss with stone abutments: three views: one dated 1884 and in 1885 as rebuilt with new stone abutments and parapets and cast iron arches); Bridge No. 33 at Bredon (road over: steel or cast iron under-girder and considerable amount of masonry, 1884); Bridges Nos. 30 and 32 at Bredon (before (1884/6) and after (1885/6) photographs: timber spans of 1840 replaced by structures similar to previous: the before pictures give an excellent impression of how the Birmingham & Gloucester looked when opened); Washstone's Bridge near Frisby between Systn and Peterborough (bridge crossing Wreake being replaced: primitive earlier structure; new structure steel or cast iron girder with stone piers; Nar Bridge (King's Lynn): original flimsy structure: timber struss of 1864 as replaced in 1885 by steel or wrought iron girder span with brick abutments as incorporated into Midland & Great Northern Railway (before photograph shows coffer dam used to construct abutments; Spetchley Bridge; King's Heath bridge (brick arch original of 1840 and girder replacement of 1886); Bridge No. 48 at Abbott's Wood (original timber structure of 1840 awaiting replacement in 1886); and as replaced in 1887 with girder and stone replacement; bridges over streams at Fleam, Hargate and Egginton Brook where timber structures were replaced by girder and stone structures. See also letter from Brian Lewis in Issue 15 page 44 who had found alternative views in collections held in National collections (NRM and National Archives) and who observes that timber structures were in "as-built" condition. See also letter from J.W. Mann (Issue 16 page 56) which adds to the information about the bridge at Cleeve; and at Bredon (where the unpainted girders would have been treated with red lead prior to fabrication); the correct terminology for the timber bearer at the top of a trestle is a corbel; and at Abbotswood where the date of reconstruction was 1886..

Also describes S&DR No. 11 which also came from George England: it had been constructed for the Imperial Exhibition held in London in 1862. The 2-4-0T was supplied in England's standard blue livery and was bought in 1863 by thhe S&DR where it was known by the saff ass "Bluebottle", but it was not the source for S&DJR blue livery.

Hill, Norman. Timothy Hackworth's essential place in
early locomotive development. 4-26.
An attempt to increase the historical standing of Hackworth, and possibly to downgrade that of George Stephenson who is almost accused of industrial espionage, the word "plundered" is used, on behalf of The Grand Allies (Sir Thomas Liddell, James Stuart-Wortley-Mackenzie and the Earl of Strathmore) who supplied him with a horse. The references are highly selective: Dendy Marshall and Reed are excluded, Clement Stretton's skeletal line drawings are used without giving any warning that they may be inaccurate. See also letter from R.A. Fox in Issue 19 page 52 which refers back to contributions in Issue 17 page 38 from Harry Jack and Kevin Jones. See also letter in Issue 18 (inside back cover) from Michael Hardy who is critical of the claim made in Robert Young's Timothy Hackworth and the locomotive that three locomotives constructed by Hackworth were the first in British North America: Dorchester built by Stephenson's for the Champlain & St Lawrence Railroad in 1836 was the first .Letter from Peter Treloar (Issue 19 page 52) notes that Pavlovsk was displaced from near Moscow to the Black Sea.

Peter Fidczuk . Gas by rail .Part 4: Associated Octel and Tank Rentals.
Associated Octel grew out of 1930s activity sponsored by the Ministry of Aviation to ensure the supply of a strategic material, namely anti-knock compounds for petrol engines ued in cars and aero engines. These are based on tetraethyl lead used with the ethylene dibromide (for aero engines) or ethylene dichloride to act as scavengers. The dibromide (bromine) requires a supply of chlorine and is produced from warm seawater: the initial plant was located at Hayle power station in Cornwall. The tetraethyl lead plant was located at Lostock Gralam, known variously as Plumley, Plumbley, Holford and Winnington. Following WW2, a further bromine plant was established at Amlwch on Anglesey and this was built in association with a new Associated Octel plant at Ellesmere Port. Illus. include 20 ton ethylene dibromide tank wagon constructed by Charles Roberts in 1940 No. G26 for Hayle to Plumley traffic. Hayle Wharf branch with 57XX shunting two tank wagons (one for chlorine, the other for sulphuric acid) in April 1959 (two photos Hugh Davies); Associated Octel tank wagon No. 404 supplied by Charles Roberts in 1940 in about 1964; Associated Octel tank wagon No.907 for chlorine transport at Stoke Gifford in May 1972; Associated Octel tank wagon No.926 constructed by Jurst Nelson in 1957/8. .

Pirie, A. Gordon. Strabathie Light Railway (or the
Blackdog Light Railway or the Murcar Railway. 4-23.
The Seaton Brick & Tile Company built a brickworks at Strabathie on the North Sea coast north of Aberdeen in 1898 and in 1899 acquired a Light Railway Order to construct a narrow gauge (3ft) from the works to Bridge of Don. The line was 3¼ miles long. Alexander Christie, the manager of the brickworks hoped that it would be possible to work the firm's traffic from there into the City centre using Aberdeen Corporation Tramways and vehicles were designed, but not constructed to cope with two different gauges. A Hunslet outside-cylinder 0-4-0ST Newburgh was the motive power and open wagons were supplied by W.G. Bagnall and later by Gray, Harrow & Co. of Aberdeen. Subsequently, the Seaton Brick & Tile Co. was pursuaded to carry golfers to the links and these were conveyed in former tramcars supplied from Aberdeen Corporation, and built by R.&J. Shinnie of Aberdeen. When the Hunslet was withdrawn on closure of the brickworks it was acquired by William Tawse, an Aberdeen contractor. From 1909 a petrol-engined railcar was employed, supplied by John B.Duff and this was known as the buggy or the trainie. See also congratulatory letter from Martin Gregory, but with some cryptic comment upon the source of power for the railcar. The Hunslet with a train of two carriages is illustrated on page 9. At the bottom of page 8 there is a drawing (S. and f. els.) of a wagon. There are several pictures of the railcar from its prime through until its semi-demise. On page 10 upper there is a postcard photograph of Great North of Scotland Railway mail omnibus (bus) at Newburgh: Milnes-Daimler No. 2368: registered as SA 311.

Digby, Nigel. 'Our carriages': the story of the Midland
& Great Northern Joint Railway's own carriages and what happened to them.
The story 'Our carriages' as they were known at the Melton Constable works of what became the M&GNJR were ordered by the Lynn & Fakenham Railway from the Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Co, in 1882. By delivery the railway had become the Eastern & Midlands Railway and William Marriott was its Engineer and Locomotive Superintendent who termed these vehicles the 'Large Stock'. They had semi-elliptical roofs and were six-wheelers. From 1892 Marriott produced what he termed 'New Stock' at Melton Constable using parts from withdrawn MR and NLR vehicles, but with the overall appearance conforming with the 'Large Stock'. The basis for much of this article is Marriott's Day Book which is kept in the National Archive at Kew.

See also letter from R.A. Fox in Issue 19 page 52. KPJ also used this letter to accuse Railway Archive of lacking a sense of direction: such nonsense was firmly squashed not only by the Editor, but also in letters in Issue 18 (inside back cover) from Tony Wisdom, Cyril Crawley and Steve Phillips, and from KPJ who considers Issue 17 to be absolutely super.

Mullay, A.J. The loss of Colchester and other tales:
Great Eastern ships in World War One. 71-80.
The Great Eastern Railway lost several of its ships during WW1, notably the Colchester. On 2 April 1916 the company's cargo ship Cromer attempted to ram a German U-boat (submarine) which forced it to crash-dive. Captain F.F. Beeching was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for this action. On 23 June 1916 the Brussels was stopped and taken as as prize to Zeebrugge and its Captain Charles Fryatt was murdered by the the Germans following a court martial: execution was by a firing squad (German readers should remember that this is written in Nurse Edith Cavell country). At the end of WW1 Captain Fryatt was honoured with a service at St Paul's Cathedral prior to being reinterred with honour at Dovercourt. This article is a trailer for the author's For the King's service: railway ships at war. (to be published by Tempus). Corrections in Issue 21 page 29 et seq: from Jerzy M. Swieszkowski (Shipping Research Coordiantor, Great Eastern Railway Society)t.

Jenkins, Stanley C. The Jersey Eastern Railway.
Standard gauge railway opened in 1873 and closed in 1929. Unlike the narrow gauge Jersey Railway the Jersey Eastern operated on a relatively level route with few engineering structures. The trains lacked continuous brakes and relied on the brakes provided on the engine and by the guard. There was only one signal, but electric lighting had been installed by 1929.

Arman, Brian. The H.L. Hopwood Collection, 1901-1923.
Part 1: A Great Northern selection. 31-8.
Harold Hopwood was born in 1881 and joined the Great Northern Railway in January 1897, becoming a clerk in the Locomotive Department in 1902. In July 1907 he was moved to the Train Running Section at King's Cross and following the Grouping he was moved to Liverpool Street before returning to King's Cross. He was a founder member of the Railway Club. He died in 1927: obituary Rly Mag., 1927 June. Arman also relates how he obtained the collection of prints and it is noted that the glass photographic plates are held by the Locomotive Club of Great Britain as part of the Ken Nunn Collection. Michael Hardy (letter Issue 19 p. 70) states that death was on 23 April 1927, citing Locomotive Magazine for 14 May 1927). Also notes that Hopwood advertised his prints for sale in Locomotive Magazine in 1904. Also records that Steam in camera 1898-1959 (Ottley 10465) records the movement of the Hopwood collection by Ken Nunn and Bernard Maycoack..

Jack, Harry. Clement Edwin Stretton railway
A further and more detailed examination of the excessively imaginative railway and locomotive "historian" Clement Edwin Stretton. Jack shows how Stretton's account of Vulcan Foundry locomotives being "shipped" to the isolated section of the Chester & Holyhead Railwya to work on Anglesey is a complete fabrication: the locomotives went to the London to Birmingham section. Jack observes that Stretton is definitely not to be trusted on the output from Haigh Foundry where many of the alleged "output" did not ever exist. Similarly, Stretton is completely untrustworthy on anything relating to Bury locomotives, and several of his "drawings" of Bury locomotives were accepted by the Science Museum and have since been used to mislead serious students. Jack's strictures are even more severe on Stretton's compilations of the output from Vulcan Foundry.. Further support for this consignment of Stretton to the dustbin of historians from Brian Lewis (Issue 19 page 70) who found inaccuracies in Stretton's record of the Leicester & Swannington Railway .

Turton, Keith. Admiralty coal traffic during the First
World War: the 'Jellicoe Trains'. Part 1. 2-32.
During WW1 the British Fleet under the command of Admiral of the Fleet Sir John Jellicoe was greatly dependent upon supplies of smokeless Welsh coal which had to be transported from South Wales to ports on the East Coast most notably on the Firth of Forth especially at Grangemouth which required the coal to be hauled over Shap. See also Part 2 in Issue 20 beginning page 21 and "Follow up" articles in Issue 23 by Edward Talbot (page 41) and by John Hodge and Richard Weedley beginning page 55.. Only one photograph relates directly to the central topic and this is particularly interesting as it shows that the train carried three head lamps above the buffer beam: the Jellicoe specials do not appear to have been photographed, in spite of/because of their strategic importance.. This article was judged by John Lusted (long letter in Issue 21 pp. 26-7) to be excessively critical of Lord Jellicoe and in particular of his "defeat" at the Battle of Jutland, but does agree that Jellicoe failed to address the German U-boat campaign. Further Jellicoe was far from swashbuckling. Letter from Tony Cooper in Issue 22 page 66 who queries why Royal Navy did not use nearer coal and comments on calorific values. Additional information concerning Jellicoe's role as a coal merchant from Keith Turton in Issue 23 page 24..

See also letter from Brian Lacey in No. 22 page 66 who compares this illustration with one in Bradley's LSWR locomotives the Adams classes (1985) where there is an engraving on page 101 of portable Merryweather steam pump and a photograph of B4 class No. 94 Brittany fitted with buffer beam brackets for pump..
2-4-0 No. 58 page 50

See also letter from Robin Barnes in Issue 20 page 20 who considers that lining may be visible in photographs of Nos. 13A and 28; long letter from Les Gilpin (Cumbrian Railways Association) on most of the photographs: notably the 0-4-0s were supplied by Fairbairn not Fairburn; the Sharp Stewart 0-4-0 was supplied from Manchester, not Glasgow. Suggests that the 0-4-0ST may have been No. 94. Adds that No. 28 is extant as restored to an 0-4-0 tender locomotive numbered 20 and operated by the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway: cites Tim Owen The great survivors, Cumbrian Railways Association. Brian Lacey (letter Issue 20 page 59) suggests that the 0-4-0ST may have been No. 94 (the "9" may have fallen off when the buffer beam was modified with some extra form of coupling).

Also comments on the removal of the front steps and handrail from some members of the Star class
The Great Bear and other matters. Peter Treloar.
See upper coloured illustration on rear cover of Issue 17 and black & white photograph reproduced herein, from which it is obvious that (1) "F. Moore" had changed the livery of the train from chocolate and cream to overall crimson (possibly to make the picture seem more up-to-date) and (2) had added steps in front of the cylinders: these steps had been fitted to the locomotive when it ran in as-built condition, but had been removed by the time the photograph was taken Also noted that on page 20 of article beginning page 4 of Issue 16 that Pavlovsk in Russia was placed on Black Sea whereas it was only 25km from Moscow. Norman Hill responded in Issue 20 page 59+..
Hawksworth and Stephenson. R.A. Fox
See article in Issue 16 beginning page 4 and letters which stemmed from it by Harry Jack and Kevin P. Jones which were critical of the original article for relying upon Stretton and for attempting to support Timothy Hackworth at the expense of George Stephenson's reputation which the present writer states "never plundered anyone of anything" and that Stephenson and Hackworth were "on good terms with each other". Norman Hill responded in Issue 20 page 59+.

A quotation from David St John Thomas' West Country: the first volume of the seminal Regional History of the Railways of Great Britain stated that "The railway made South Devon's fortune and lost North Devon's". Parkhouse considered that the terrain of North Devon and North Cornwall was not hospitable to the development of either resorts or railways and cites the lack of suitable locations for resorts between Minehead and Padstow.

RA5 - A Pouteau Correction! Roger Horn
See Issue 5 page 70 lower wherein caption states that E1 2-4-0 No. 993 was near Godley Junction with short express for London of Gresley stock with 12-wheel dining car: writer states the location was Hemsworth on the West Riding (GN&GC Joint) and the train was probably a Leeds to King's Cross express. John Alsop reply see Issue 21 page 28 agrees not Godley Junction.
RA19 Fly Shunted. M.R. Grocock
See Issue 19 page 51 lower: article in The Locomotive Magazine, 15 Jan. 1904, described route taken by the large flywheel as an out-of-gauge load as being from the South Durham Iron & Steel Co. Ltd's works at Stockton to their other works at West Hartlepool. The locomotive appears to be a Class '398' 0-6-0. The train, with the exception of the 20-and 40-ton wagons, is the Stockton Brakedown Train, which at that time consisted of a Riding Van and two Tool Vans (painted crimson), and the hand crane.
See also naval vessel in Issue 19 page 16: this was a battleship dressed overall to celebrate some special occasion (such as the King's birthday) and also possibly flying an Admiral's flag was one of the 'Royal Sovereign' Class.
RA19 Fly Shunted. Robin Barnes
See Issue 19 page 51 lower: article in The Locomotive Magazine, 15 Jan. 1904, showed photograph and accompanied a short article entitled 'Removal of a large fly wheel from Stockton-on-Tees to West Hartlepool'. The movement was for the South Durham Steel & Iron Co, which wished to transfer it from their Moor Works at Stockton to West Hartlepool. Weighing around 35 tons and of 20 ft diameter, it was moved complete by placing it horizontally across two flat wagons running side by side on the parallel Up and Down lines. On the Up line there was only a single 20 ton wagon, the train proper running on the Down, made up of locomotive, chock van, tool van, crane with jib wagon, 40 ton wagon (sharing flywheel) and a travelling van (a former passenger vehicle). The transfer was made 'without trouble' and took 6hr 40min, averaging 15mph, passing over six junctions and around curves of 14.5 chains radius with 4.5 inch super-elevation on the outer rail. Large crowds turned out to watch.
See also feature on old Furness Railway 0-4-0s: believes lining is visible on the lower tender body of No. 13A, (page 46) and upper left hand comer of the cab side sheet on No. 28 (page 47). Is it possible if these locomotives on the one hand had not been repainted for a considerable time but on the other subjected to frequent and thorough handcleaning, then lining had simply gradually disappeared?
'Jellicoe Trains': Holton Heath and Bailey Gate Sidings. R. Dukes
See Issue 19 page 2: further information on list of sidings. Holton Heath on LSWR between Poole and Wareham was site of Royal Naval Cordite Factory built in 1915 to produce propellant for the Royal Navy. Holton Heath station was built to serve it and many employees arrived by train. There was roughly 4.5 miles of standard gauge track and sidings, including access to stores buildings, as virtually everything used on site was delivered by rail. There was also an extensive narrow gauge system extending to all buildings, with some 17 miles of track. The factory manufactured its own electricity and gas, and had a large steam making plant, so coal usage was significant. The site lacked sufficient water, thus a pumping station was built six miles north and coal sidings were put in at Bailey Gate, on the Somerset & Dorset line, to serve it. A more extensive history was published in A pictorial record of the Royal Naval Factory by M.R. Bowditch and L. Hayward, Finial Press 1996. An album of some 240 photographs taken between 1915 and 1930 was acquired by the association linked to the Factory.

SR 1930s that makeshift lamp iron. Peter Swift
See Issue 19 page 43 upper for photograph of King Arthur No. 767 and its "makeshift extended lamp iron" on the buffer beam. The normal bracket was not broken as it is clearly visible above the smoke deflector plate. The reason for the makeshift may have been through the varying practices of the Southern Railway constituents. All its pre-grouping companies used route indicating discs, but the SECR used only four positions, three across the buffer beam and one in front of chimney. The LSWR and LBSCR both used six positions: the LSWR put its middle discs on either side of the smokebox at mid height, whilst the LBSCR used extended double brackets on the buffer beam, able to carry both the lower and middle disc. In about 1920, the SECR started to fit the additional brackets to locomotives, but lower down on the smokebox, as shown in the various photos of SECR 4-4-0s in Jim Greaves' article. The problem with the LSWR arrangement is shown on No. 856, in the photo below that of No. 767. The smokebox side, is right in the fireman's line of sight and would be even worse when the brackets were raised, as on No. 767, after smoke deflectors were fitted. The LSWR also differed from the other two in using sockets instead of spikes for its lamp irons, requiring a different set of lamps and discs. The Eastern Section solved this problem by inserting lamp irons into the sockets, as seen in the centre bufferbeam bracket on No. 767 and, more clearly, in the two photos of No. 772 on page 41. No. 772 also shows the final solution to the sighting problem with the side discs moved onto the smokebox door. As the photograph of 772 on page 42 shows, the operating department also solved the problem in 1934 by changing the Victoria-Dover via Tonbridge headcode. 'Lord Nelson' No. 853 carried an LBSCR style double bracket on the fireman's side for a several years. It looks as though No. 767's driver has reproduced this with a makeshift spike put into the LSWR socket.

Hackworth versus Stephenson the author's reply. Norman Hill. (completed on inside rear cover)
Response to several letters inspired by original article in Issue 16 page 4 et seq: notably Harry Jack (Strettonisms); Peter Treloar (failings in location of Russian places, notably Pavlovsk), R.A. Fox, and dare we repeat it Kevin (George the pillager): at the end of it all he does admit that Stretton was a "charlatan". Wisely, our letter writer leaves the blastpipe controversy in silence. He also referred to the Pouteau photographs of NER items in Issue 19: to page 56 which notes a similar picture in Hill's Teesside railways which showed that dynamometer car tests were conducted on the Stainmore route between T class No. 2125 fitted with piston valves and slide valve locomotive No. 130 of the T1 class. See also page 62 lower for view of Tynemouth station, and very recent colour views on rear cover which show that for once all is not lost.
Turton, Keith. Admiralty coal traffic during the First
World War: the 'Jellicoe Trains'. Part 2. 21-45.
Part 1: Issue 19 page 2. The involvement of Henry Gethin Lewis in the hire of wagons for the Admiralty is mentioned on pp. 33-6 and is the subject of an extensive letter from Keith Turton in RA 26 page 68. On 12 July 1915 the LNWR issued a new working timetable which detailed the increase of traffic coming off the GWR at Warrington. (see also letter from Keith Fenwick in Issue 22 page 66 who states that 1916 working timetable was very similar). The Jellicoe trains were scheduled to stop for examination at Carnforth, Tebay and Penrith, and were required to shunt clear for passenger trains to overtake. Trains were banked from Oxenholme (and later from Milnthorpe) to Grayrigg, and from Tebay to Shap Summit. The schedules allowed from 7¾ to 10¾ hours from Warrington to Carlisle. From October 1915 about half of the traffic was diverted either via the Settle & Carlisle route or onto the NER at Normanton and thence over the East Coast Main Line. Two major railways, the Midland and the North Eastern, are noteworthy for their lack of any extant information on their involvement in carrying Admiralty coal traffic: the North Eastern was clearly a major player, and the GWR handed over Admiralty coal to the Midland at Gloucester. In Scotland coal was shipped at Leith and Burntisland as well as from Grangemouth. William Mathwin & Son operated as Agent for the Royal Navy in the supply of coal, and as Agent it was in charge of the overall transport arrangements from colliery to Scottish or East Coast port.
