2ft 6in Shunter 0-4-0T Locomotive Class
In 1880 Mr. WebbExplain 'Webb, Francis William (1836—1906)' produced five of the most unusual engines ever to be built, even at Crewe WorksExplain 'Crewe Works', and another five were built in 1862. They were mostly used within the works itself. The driverExplain 'Driver' and firemanExplain 'Fireman' worked at opposite ends, either being able to attach couplingsExplain 'Coupling', and both the brake and the reversing gearExplain 'Reversing Gear' were operable from either end, with no protection from the elements for the crew.
17in Coal Engine 0-6-0 Locomotive Class
A standard 0-6-0 goods engine designed by F.W. WebbExplain 'Webb, Francis William (1836—1906)' of which 500 were built from 1873. The design was based on the ‘Special Tanks’Explain 'Special Tank 0-6-0T Locomotive Class' and at first used the same boiler up rated to 140 psiExplain 'PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)'; later the whole class had boilers with larger fireboxes. The 17in refers to the diameter of the cylindersExplain 'Cylinder' and the last ones ran into the early 1950’s. View more details
17in Goods Locomotive Class
See Coal Engine 0-6-0 locomotive class Explain 'Coal Engine 0-6-0 Locomotive Class'.
18in Goods Engine 0-6-0 Locomotive Class
A goods engine with 18in diameter cylindersExplain 'Cylinder', usually taken to refer to the class of 0-6-0 engines designed by F.W. WebbExplain 'Webb, Francis William (1836—1906)' and also known as ‘Cauliflowers’Explain '‘Cauliflower’ 0-6-0 Locomotive Class' of which 302 were built from 1890-1902. View more details
18in Tank 0-6-2T Locomotive Class
See Watford TankExplain 'Watford Tank 0-6-2T Locomotive Class'.
19in Goods Locomotive Class
A class of 170 engines introduced in 1906 by George WhaleExplain 'Whale, George (1842—1910)'. Intended for mixed trafficExplain 'Mixed Traffic Locomotive' duties, these engines were based on his successful ‘Experiment’Explain 'Experiment 4-6-0 Locomotive Class (2)' 4-6-0 passenger locomotives, but with smaller, 5ft 3in driving wheelsExplain 'Drive Wheel' and 3ft 3in bogieExplain 'Bogie' wheels.

1185 0-8-2T Locomotive Class
This was a class of 30 locomotives, a tankExplain 'Tank Locomotive' development of the G1 classExplain '‘G1’ 0-8-0 Locomotive Class'. They were built 1911-1917, by Bowen CookeExplain 'Bowen Cooke, Charles J (1859—1920)', and intended for heavy shuntingExplain 'Shunting', particularly at Edge HillExplain 'Edge Hill, Liverpool' where, although the sorting was by gravity, heavy trains needed to be moved to and from the grid ironsExplain 'Grid Irons, Edge Hill'. They were the first locomotives since RamsbottomExplain 'Ramsbottom, John (1814—1897)' adopted screw reverseExplain 'Screw Reverse' to have lever reverseExplain 'Lever Reverse'. View more details
1400 4-6-0 Locomotive Class
Webb’sExplain 'Webb, Francis William (1836—1906)' last locomotives were the 1400s, a class of 30 four cylinder compoundExplain 'Compounding' 4-6-0 mixed trafficExplain 'Mixed Traffic Locomotive' engines, with 5ft 3in driving wheelsExplain 'Drive Wheel', intended as more powerful replacements for the “Cauliflowers”Explain '‘Cauliflower’ 0-6-0 Locomotive Class'. The first appeared in February 1903, only three months before Webb’s retirement. They were distinguished by a kink in the footplateExplain 'Footplates' where it cleared the outside cylinders (similar to that on the “B” classExplain '‘B’ Class 0-8-0 Locomotive class') and by a long continuous splasherExplain 'Splasher' over the coupled wheelsExplain 'Coupled Wheels'.
