Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Great Southern Railways Class B1a were the biggest and most powerful engines ever to run in Ireland by a large margin. They were designed under the supervision of E.C. Bredin. His Chief Draughtsman, H.J.A. Beaumont, prepared the drawings. The engines had three 18.5 by 28 inches (470 711 mm) cylinders and 225 pounds per square inch (1.55 MPa) boiler pressure. The nominal tractive effort was 34,799 lbf (154.8 kN), which corresponded with Great British main-line power. Further, it was the only design which exploited the full extent of the extra width afforded by the 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m) gauge.show more
