LOCOMOTIVE BUILDERS

The following list includes the builders of steam, electric and diesel locomotives. In the latter cases the 'builder' is difficult to identify, because in later years the various components were often constructed by different firms and the name-epithet applied to such a locomotive may, for example, refer solely to the traction equipment.

1n 1987, many of the manufacturers were grouped under several parent holding companies. Thus the G.E.C. groups, A.E.I. Ltd. and E.E.Co. held G.E.C. Traction Ltd. and G.E.C. Diesels respectively. Other companies of historical importance within these groups were listed as dormant (B,T.-H. Ltd., Metro-Vickers, Paxman, Ruston & Hornsby). Hunslet (Holdings) PLC included Andrew Barclay, Greenbat, Hudswell Clarke and The Hunslet Engine Co. In the Hawker Siddeley Group PLC were listed Brush, R.A. Lister and also Westinghouse. But see also below.

The format is as follows: Builder (location) (age range of preserved examples as at 1980) [dates in production for the (British) railway industry] The titles are listed alphabetically under surnames where applicable.

The specialisations of steam locomotive builders are indicated thus:

i: industrial, rc: railcar, t: tram engine, vb: vertical boiler;

ic refers to internal combustion locomotives, drc refers to diesel railcar

The names of the various workshops are listed separately.
