THE NORTH-EASTERN RAILWAY WORKS. The locomotive works of the North-Eastern Railway are situated on the south bank of the Tyne, not far removed from the Stephenson High-Level Bridge. The site was originally that of an extensive goods station, and several of the shop buildings remain just as they were in those days, but in 1883 and 1884 the works were largely rebuilt, extended, and reorganised. Some old associations, however, still remain, a particularly tender one among the elder hands being that, thro..
SIX-COUPLED EXPRESS ENGINES FOR NORTH·EASTERN RAILWAY . “For some years past, and especially since so remarkable an impetus was given to Anglo-Scottish travel by the competitive "acceleration " to Aberdeen-which we are forbidden to call a " race "-of 1895, the difficulty of running to time the increasing loads has steadily grown on the North-Eastern Railway as on the Great Northern. For not only has the number of passengers to be conveyed mounted up with surp..

STEEL SNOW PLOUGH. The North-Eastern Railway Company has recently built to the designs of its chief mechanical engineer. Mr. Wilson Worsdell, a snow plough which is somewhat of a departure from ordinary practice, inasmuch as it is constructed almost entirely of steel, only the internal fittings and back part of roof being of wood. The steel outer plates are all ½ in. thick, and are secured to the framework by countersunk rivets so as to present a smooth surface to the snow. The internal framing to..

This locomotive, as will be seen from the illustration, is of the saddle tank type, and is fitted with inside cylinders of special hard cylinder metal, 12in. di..
THE JENNY LIND. We illustrate this week an engine round which very great historical interest centres. The Jenny Lind was in a very large measure the forerunner of the standard type of English locomotive. We believe that most of our readers will admit that even in modern eyes there is much to admire in the design, and it is probable that the engine was on the whole the handsomest locomotive that had been built up to that date. The origin of the design is very instructive, and we arc indebted to the priva..
