NBR 1877 Goods Engine
We illustrate above a ... type of goods engine, designed by Mr. Drummond, locomotive superintendent of the North British Railway, and constructed at the companies works at Cowlairs, near Glasgow. The engines are similar in external appearance to the new goods engines desiigned by Mr. Stroudley for the London and Brighton Railway, but are more powerful machines and considerably heavier.
The work to be performed by these engines is very severe, as the grades are steep and very long, and the work has to be done in winter under very trying conditions of weather.
They are, we believe, the most powerful goods engines at work in this country, and are giving the most complete satisfaction.
