NLR Adams 4-4-0 Tank Engine 1891
"PASSENGER LOCOMOTIVE FOR THE NORTH LONDON RAILWAY."
On our two-page plate, and on page. 35, we give this week engravings showing the general arrangement of one of a class of outside cylinder side-tank locomotives designed by Mr. J . C. Park, M.I.C.E. , for the North London line, and constructed at the company's works, Bow Road, London, E. 1.
In many of its details this engine resembles the tank goods locomotive for the same line ... but being intended for passenger traffic, has larger driving wheels (5 ft. 5 in. in diameter), and the speed at which it is intended to run being higher, a bogie has been fitted in front, to ease the engine in rounding the numerous curves on this line. The boiler is of steel, with a copper firebox and steel tubes.
