Transactions/Journal Institution of Locomotive Engineers
steamindex home page
The Institution began by publishing individual papers. These do not appear to be in any of the British Library's collections, but are now clearly "visible" in the Institution of Mechanical Engineer's electronic archive and have been inspected in the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' excellent Library. The Institution of Locomotive Engineers eventually merged with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, but this was after steam locomotive operation had ceased. Some of the papers were included in Jones, but reinspection is making this source look far less than comprehensive. The main run of the Journal did not start until 1916 (that is with Issue Number 1, but in Volume No. 6). The earlier Transactions (noted as such on the title page) form part of the same Volume sequence. The vast majority of papers received Paper Numbers, even if some of the earliest papers lacked them. Most of the Addresses (Presidential or Inaugural) did not receive numbers, but sometimes there are gaps in the numerical sequence. In the early days of the Journal a repeat presentation of a Paper might receive an alphabetical suffix. Alphabetical suffixes were also allocated to a series of very brief presentations, either by ths same author of by different authors. Some papers have been cited retrospectively by their Issue Numbers which are clearly displayed on unbound copies, but members of the Institution tended to cite either the Journal Issue or the Paper Number. A few problems have been encountered: there are some gaps in the Paper Number sequences and in at least one case a Paper without a number might have been either one of two, and some duplicate Paper Numbers were given without any apparent subsequent editorial correction.
The Institution per se was the subject of historical papers by Holcroft and Cox, and following the body's amalgamation with the IMechE in the first Railway Division Journal by Cox (who covered both Institutions with a broad brush.). There has since been a further celebration: namely the Centenary rather too quietly celebrated by Allan C. Baker in a pamphlet published by IMechE in 2011. The centenary publication of the Stephenson Locomotive Society is also relevant.
Within the scope of the re-examination performed so far it is clear that some key figures, notably James Clayton, had received insufficient attention. Stanier became highly voluble in his retirement years. It is also quite obvious from a brief initial inspection of the first ten volumes that it was Collett, rather than Churchward, who regarded the Institution with contempt as both Stanier and Hawksworth were closely involved in the early years: the former noting that the mixed traffic locomotive (the 43XX was being discussed) was the engine of the future, and there was a typical Clayton confrontation with Hawksworth on the stability of the County outside-cylinder 4-4-0s!. Perhaps inevitably there is an LBSCR bias in the early papers. Garratt was very active at the early meetings..
The IMechE virtual library was accessible at www.imeche.org.uk. KPJ has been granted temporary access to the full electronic archive and is greatly impressed by the high quality of the pdf files and their presentation as a series of pages on the screen. To an extent this marks the continuing improvement to the Adobe software, but it also reflects the very high quality of the scanning which is especially apparent in the figures and tables. .

Discussion by Sir William Stanier (323) who had been "interested that they also reverted to the round-top firebox; he thought they might have done much better if they had retained the Belpaire firebox when they got over the difficulty with transverse stays."..."Welding of coupling and connecting rods might have been all right during the war, but he would hesitate to use them unless they were heat-treated afterwards."
Hancock, J.S. (Paper No. 468).
Water softening for locomotive boilers. 336-41. Disc.: 341-51.
Although presented in Bombay, the paper reflected LMS policy. "The LMS started serious water softening in 1931 when plants were ordered for 28 watering sations on the two main lines between London and Carlisle." Five firms shared the contract for lime-soda ash process plants. Problems with corrosion of steel boiler tubes and with priming led to the decision to fit continuous blowdown to all locomotives, and to extend softening to the bulk of water supplies. Copper corrosion was found in some shunting locomotives and tannin was added to prevent this. (Mileages) between boiler wash outs were increased from weekly to fortnightly, but had decreased from 2800 to 1500 miles when softening was introduced.

In 1939 the three Irish Queen class locomotives were fitted and had a 21 ton axle load. K.R.M. Cameron (p. 398) noted that a Royal Scot tender equipped with rolling bearings could be pushed by two foremen in the erecting shop.
Gammon, C.A. (Paper No. 496)

Discussion by Stanier (467-8): When he was on the Great Western Railway, the late Churchward built a 40 ton bogie coal wagon, but he found that the tare of the 40 ton-wagon was greater than the tare of two 20-ton wagons, and it was very restricted in the places it could serve, and so naturally he built 20-ton wagons. On the Cornish Riviera Limited they had measured the quantity of oil placed into the axleboxes, and the sealed boxes were run for eleven months - care was taken to examine the boxes adjacent to the engine to ensure that water had not breached the dust shields. Queried the change to oil-hardened plates from water-hardened: danger of mixing the two. T. Hornbuckle (471-2) that Clayton, Carriage & Wagon Superintendent of the MR had constructed 80,000 wagons to one design at a cost of £65 per wagon. These 8 ton wagons were mass produced at Derby Works.

He entirely disagreed with the Author about his views on the best positions of clacks and injectors.
