A comprehensively-illustrated and fascinating history of the 36 industrial steam locomotives supplied to New Zealand by Scottish builder Andrew Barclay Sons & Co Ltd, between 1878 and 1947. Ten NZ Barclay locomotives survive in some form, including No. 1749, which is in fully operational condition on the Silverstream Railway, Wellington. The others range from relatively complete to little more than frames and wheels. Interestingly, two of the survivors are relatively complete diesel conversions.
