1859-1869: Beyer Peacock Locomotives delivered to DBSR

Beyer Peacock: The Gorton foundry, established 1854

The founders

As early as 1841 the Manchester & Sheffield Railway (where Peacock was the No. 1 engine man) ordered locomotives from Sharp Roberts (where Beyer was the Chief Engineer) and regularly purchased Sharp locomotives thereafter.
This may be how Peacock first met Beyer, and it is possible that they collaborated in 1844-1846, when six particularly succesful 0-6-0 "luggage" engines were built, including "Sphynx".


The Gorton Foundry, 1854 / 1856 / 1864


(From source #1): Some of the early locomotives, 1854-1860 and 1861-1864


Quoted from "Locomotive_Builders..."

These Beyer, Peacock photographs are probably the oldest collection of industrial pictures in the world, intended as a commercial record and a sales adjunct. The earliest photographs taken at Gorton Foundry were by James Mudd; he took them using an early wet plate process on a glass plate slightly smaller than the 15in x 12in in size on each he standardised later.

From then on a maker's photograph was taken of most types. Beyer, who has experimented earlier with the Daguerreotype process, was quick to realise the potential of Fox Talbot's negative and positive process.


Some standard 0-6-0 engines, made by B & P

Order #245 (12 engines), 1858, for the Madras Railway, India / Order #337 (two engines), 1859, for the Egyptian Government (here is the Mohammed Said)


Order #558 (4 engines), 1861, for the Shrewsbury & Hereford Railway / Order #522, 1861, for the North Eastern


One of the B & P engines - 2-4-0, order #2000, 1866 delivered for the Norwegian Government (total delivered engines of this class: 27)

Pentru ca modul de exprimare de pe site-ul Beyer Peacock e putin confuz si necesita clarificari, reiau un pic:

Order No = comanda numarul 362, pentru care fabrica a realizat masinile cu numerele progresive (sau mai precis numerele de santier) 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125 din 1860.
Numar de exemplare construite = 6, dintre care 2 exemplare au ajuns la DBSR si mai apoi la CFR dupa cum urmeaza:

BP 120/1860 = DBSR No. 1 OVIDIU = CFR No. 681 OVIDIU
BP 121/1860 = DBSR No. 2 TOMIS = CFR No. 682 TOMIS

Restul de 4 exemplare nu au fost ridicate de DBSR pana la finalul anului 1860 datorita amanarii datei de deschidere a liniei, astfel incat in cursul unei vizite la fabrica
in data de 28 decembrie 1860 domnul Ramsbottom avand nevoie urgenta de locomotive pentru LNWR a gasit si achizitionat cele patru locomotive ramase din cadrul comenzii 362,
motiv pentru care locomotivele BP 122/1860, BP 123/1860, BP 124/1860, BP 125/1860 si-au continuat cariera la LNWR, doua in Southern Division, doua in Northern Division.
Iata de ce LNWR a avut patru locomotive "surori" cu doua locomotive DBSR.
