Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Davies and Metcalfe Ltd was a railway equipment and locomotive manufacturer from Romiley, Manchester, England originally founded in Aberystwyth in 1878. The company is now part of Sabwabco Davies & Metcalfe Ltd of Leek, Staffordshire. James Metcalfe was apprenticed to Sharp Stewart and worked for the company until 1867 before joining the Manchester and Milford Railway at Aberystwyth as locomotive foreman. Between 1875 and 1877 he took out three patents for an improved exhaust steam injector for steam locomotives and developed it with the financial support of David Davies "Llandinam" and Edward Hamer, the General Manager of the Manchester & Milford Railway. The Patent Exhaust Steam Injector Company was established at the Rheidol Foundry, Aberystwyth in April 1878.show more
