Description

The Clyde Engineering Company Limited was registered on 30 September 1898 in New South Wales. It was one of the iconic Australian engineering firms whose history spanned just over a century and was one of the few locomotive and rolling stock builders in the world that transitioned from steam to diesel to electric traction. This book covers the first five decades of the company’s operation. The company built 533 steam locomotives mainly for the railways of NSW, but also for most states in Australia. They also built and overhauled steam locomotives and boilers for numerous private operators.
