Here's a temporary table of the locos - so I don't have to type it in again - it is incomplete and so not suitable yet - there are mutliple sources - will only use when and if get reliable sourcing (verify the info)
The BSC Lackenby (Redcar) locos are named after places in N. Yorkshire, and according to one source after (iron) mines in N. Yorkshire - I think this is true but need to verify. It also seems that the BSC locos were 25t axleload ie 75t - heavier than some others - need to find out if they were ballasted for the torpedos..
Those market * are confirmed by searching "6wDE" in http://www.uklocos.com/first-search.asp with exisiting stock, ** same search for scrapped stock
For llanwern *** see also see http://www.flickr.com/photos/martin289/sets/72157617652342393/detail/ for Llanwern shunter images. and http://www.railphotoarchive.org/search_engine_1.php?_Galleries=section=100%20OR%20section=104 (search for builder "GEC Traction Ltd" and location "LLANWERN" ) - LLanwern locos
There was a link here to an old advert for the locos http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/28782-locomotive-rolling-stock-manufacturers/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mddkpp (talk • contribs) 03:09, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
The question is where is GEC 5417 - ie Corus number 254 - what was its name and did it ever exist??
There is a unit preserved at "rutland railway museum" http://www.rutlandrailwaymuseum.org.uk/news.php - because the museum is rebranding as "rocks by rail" with a new website it is not inconceivable the the old site will go down - in the shot term I will put the relevant text here : (NOTE THIS REMAINS COPYRIGHT OF RUTLAND RAILWAY MUSEUM) - in this form it may not be used in the article
The Museum received a "new" locomotive on Tuesday 17th August 2010. GEC “Stephenson” 0–6-0 Diesel Electric locomotive, Works No. 5578, built in 1980 is believed the last standard gauge locomotive built at the world famous Vulcan Foundry at Newton the Willows.
Sold to ICI at their Mond division works for moving the 100 ton limestone hoppers it was originally named “Ludwig Mond” after the famous chemist and founder of ICI.
Powered by a Dorman 8QT, V8 diesel engine of 500 hp, weight 50 tons in working order at a 16.5 ton axle loading, this class of locomotives were main line locomotives in miniature. There were two models produced, 50 and 75 tons, with either 8 (500hp) or 12 (750hp) cylinder engines. They were an expensive machine and sold to British Steel (75 ton model) National Coal Board (both weights) and this example to ICI.
A similar diesel hydraulic model was the mainstay of shunting within the Corby steel works.When the ICI hopper work ended, the loco passed through a dealers hands and was eventually sold to Barrington Cement works for its main line work into the exchange sidings. It has therefore spent its entire working life in the quarrying industry and fits the museums aims, albeit in a slightly wider context!(COPYRIGHT Rutland Railway Museum)
- The table isn't complete and so not suitable for inclusion - it needs working on anyway - I'm not sure if it too trivial anyway. Not sure why I spent so much time making it! Helps to get an overview anyway. If anyone knows of further locos please leave a message..Mddkpp (talk) 01
