He was Locomotive Superintendent of the Glasgow and South Western Railway and later the South Eastern Railway. Stirling was born in 1835, the fifth son of Robert Stirling, rector of Galston, East Ayrshire. After two years working for a village millwright he joined the Glasgow and South Western Railway where he was apprenticed to his brother Patrick, who had been Locomotive Superintendent of that railway since 1853. On completion of his apprenticeship, he spent a year as a fitter at Sharp Stewart in Manchester, before returning to the GSWR drawing office at Kilmarnock; he later became works manager.show more
