Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harold Holcroft was a British railway and mechanical engineer who worked for the Great Western Railway, the South Eastern and Chatham Railway and the Southern Railway. Whilst at the GWR, Holcroft helped the Chief Mechanical Engineer, George Jackson Churchward design the 4300 class 2-6-0 moguls, and took the design principles for this class of locomotive with him when he transferred over to the SECR. Here, he worked as Assistant to Richard Maunsell and was involved with the design of the Maunsell moguls, transferring over to the Southern Railway when the SECR was absorbed at grouping in 1923. With Maunsell's retirement in 1937, Holcroft continued to work for the Southern Railway under Oliver Bulleid until his retirement in 1946.show more
