Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire 0-4-2 Locomotives in Great_Britain

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 8405)

Data from Samuel Rendell (M. I Mech.E), "The Steam Locomotive: Fifty Years Ago and Now", read Saturday, 13 January 1906 and published in the Transactions of the Manchester Association of Engineers 1906 (January to March).

Little is said about this particular class, but note that it's an early product of a Manchester builder that would be world-famous in later years.
