"In a former number of our Journal, while describing the line of railway, we took occasion incidentally to notice, that there had been six Locomotive Engines built expressly for the company here - three by Messrs. Forrester and Co., of Liverpool, and three by Messrs. Sharpe, Roberts, and Co., of Manchester. The engraving in our present number gives a correct representation of one of those manufactured by the latter house. For the following description of the engine we are indebted to Mr. E. Heyden, to whom we would take this opportunity of expressing our acknowledgments for several other communications and drawings of an interesting character."
