Hello out there I’m looking for dimensional drawings of the EWJR / SMJ locomotives.
I’ve already purchased those from the HMRS but there aren’t many and those from the Beyer Peacock collection at the museum but they are too complex for modeling purposes and must be radically scaled down
Could one of the SMJ members help a lone SMJR aficionado from Belgium?
The drawings I have are:
EWJR loco 0-6-0 T Hope; without dimensions from “A History of the Stratford upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway” by RC Riley and B Simpson
EWJR loco 0-6-6-0 T Fairlie without dimensions from “The Stratford & Midland junction Railway” by J. Dun
EWJR loco 0-6-0 Beyer Peacock N°2 with a scale rule
EWJR locos 0-6-0 Beyer Peacock N°3 & 4 HMRS drawing N° 15816( I expect )
EWJR locos 7; 8 & 9 LNXR DX Goods
EWJR locos 0-6-0 Beyer Peacock N°10; 11 & 12 HMRS drawing N° 15816 ( I expect )
EWJR locos 0-6-0 Beyer Peacock N°13; 14; 15 & 16 HMRS drawing 15815( I expect )
EWJR locos 0-6-0 Beyer Peacock N°17 & 18 HMRS drawing 15815( I expect )
I have nothing concerning:
EWJR loco 0-6-0 ST N° 1
EWJR loco 0-6-0 ST Manning Wardle
EWJR locos 2-4-0T Beyer Peacock N°5 & 6
SMJR loco 0-6-0 ex LBSCR N°7 ( first N° )
EWJR loco 2-4-0 Beyer Peacock N°13 ( first N° )
This information is based on the literature I have available and may be subject to conjecture
If additional information; dimensions and/or drawings are not available I would be happy to obtain some main dimensions such as wheel diameters and wheel spacing’s in order to work the other dimensions from side view photography’s
I can help a bit on this- I used to have several drawing of SMJ locos back in my modelling days, but at least I have kept most of the references.
There is a reasonable scaled drawing of this class in "Locomotives worth modelling", published Percival Marshall 1955 (but reprinted since) by F C Hambleton. Page 79 is the loco and p88 a suitable(?) tender.
MW 0-6-0ST -
This class has appeared in a few model mags over the years, but the one I listed was in Model Railway News for Sept 1976-double page 7mm/ft scaled drawing of it as the Selsey railway "Morous" after sale from the EWJR. Might be a few details differences but the same basic loco.
EWJR Beyer Peacock 2-4-0T-
there was a good double page drawing of this in either MR News or maybe Model Railways - unfortunately I don't now have the details but perhaps somebody else has this one? It is of Swindon Marlborough & Andover Ry No.10 - however 2 identical locos on their order were not delivered to them and went instead to the EWJR as their 5 & 6 - so again an identical loco.
Early EWJR 2-4-0T -
only worked on the line to 1875 and then returned to the makers Beyer Peacock. However they then went to the LYR where one became crane tank No.518 - there is a drawing of this in Model railway Constructor June 1960.
Finally a couple of wagons-
Goods van No.25 and Low sided wagon No.41 - drawings in Model Railway News August 1961
hope this helps a little
