    W. G. Bagnall was a locomotive manufacturer from Stafford, England.

    It was founded in 1875 by William Gordon Bagnall and ceased trading in 1962 when it was taken over by English Electric Co Ltd.

    The company was located at the Castle Engine Works, in Castle Town, Stafford.

    The majority of their products were small four- and six-coupled steam locomotives for industrial use, and many were narrow gauge.

    They were noted for building steam and diesel locomotives in standard and narrow gauges.



    I spent a couple of very pleasant hours here, near the end of a hot sunny day. Historically interesting and very quiet site, suprised it's not been covered more.

    It's a amazing place, and an interesting history..

    To think they manufactured locomotives like this...

    ...Florence Colliery No.2, running at Foxfield Colliery Railway. Looking at the Wikipedia page, there's 42 preserved locomotives, and one in operational service.
