Beyer - Garratt Locomotives (1925 Beyer, Peacock & Company Garratt Catalog - Reprint)
Stock #: KB10841
Author: Beyer, Peacock & Company

List Price: $18.95
Karen's Price: $17.95

The Garratt articulated locomotive was developed by Herbert William Garratt, a British locomotive engineer who, after a career with British Colonial Railways, was the New South Wales Railways’ inspecting engineer in London. He first applied for a patent on the idea in 1907, after observing articulated gun carriages.

In 1907, Beyer, Peacock & Co. submitted a proposal for a 2 foot (610 mm) gauge 0-4-0+0-4-0 Garratt to the New South Wales Government Railways. The following year a design for a 2 foot gauge Mallet locomotive was submitted to the Government of Tasmania. This was followed with a submission for a Garratt based on, but a little heavier than, the New South Wales proposal. This proposal was accepted, and two locomotives were built in 1909, which became the K Class. The K Class had to cope with 99’ radius curves and 1 in 25 gradients. This book shows Garrett locomotives that were delivered to the Argentine North-Eastern Railway, Burma Railways, Benguella Railway, Indian State Railway, London & North-Eastern Railway, Mauritius Government Railways, Rhodesia Railways, South African Railways and the Victorian Government Railways, along others.
