Note: This is a sub-section of George Saxon

The following list is largely complied from Stanley Graham’s ‘Steam Engine Research Resources’ (more information below). Mr Graham urges due caution regarding the accuracy of the data, pointing out that the information was transcribed from others' personal notebooks. Nevertheless, it is considered worthwhile repeating the information here, representing the remarkable output of large textile mill engines from a relatively small company which ceased manufacturing in the 1940s. None of the main engines survive, but some barring engines have been preserved (see George Saxon).
