G. Inglis & Co Airdrie

Post by dalziel »

Hi,
I have been asked by a non member friend if anything is known about this company who built small tank engines between 1900 and 1926. There is some info on the internet, what caught his attention was 2 or 3 locos built for Jas Nimmo & Co. coalmasters, Glasgow and painted Caledonian blue. There was a drawing in Railway Modeller in March 1969 which showed something akin to the Caley 0-4-0 pugs. Any more info would be appreciated.

G. Inglis & Co., Albert Engineering & Boiler Works, Cairnhill Road, Airdrie were mostly a Boiler and Engineering Company supplying Boilers to various Works and Coal Mines, but also supplied a few 0-4-0ST for Collieries, a Total of 8 Engines were Built between 1900 and 1926.
It began as Inglis & Hossacks, the land being feued in 1883 just as the Caledonian Railway Line to Airdrie was being Built. The Albert Works had a direct connection with the Caledonian Railway Line at Airdrie Junction from 1886 when the Line was Completed and diectly opposite the Caley Airdrie Engine Shed. It became G. Inglis & Co., Ltd., in 1894 under the owner Gardiner Inglis, who ran a very successfully Company in Airdrie, Lanarkshire for many years.
