Description
Pakistan Railways steam locomotive, no. 3157, made at the Vulcan Foundry, Newton-le-Willows, c. 1911, with accompanying illustrative transfers.
This engine was one of eleven ordered by North-Western Railway (NWR), a regional railway operated by the Indian State Railway. The engines were broad gauge, measuring 5 feet 6 inches between the rails, favoured because it allowed the engineers designing the locomotives to build larger fireboxes and boilers, enabling the engines to pull longer and heavier loads.
This locomotive was a product of a report from the Locomotive Committee on Standard Locomotives for Indian Railways, published in 1910.
After Partition, the North-Western Railways became Pakistan Railways.
