Beyer, Peacock &Co Ltd, Manchester, 1911. A well known trademark among train buffs. But also a trademark product, reliable, affordable and maintainable. Beyer Peacock was formed in Manchester in 1854 and remained in production until 1966. The company marketed all over the world (with the exception of the US). Its trademark was synonymous with quality and reliability.

Both photos were taken at the Pemberton Tramway Company. 5475 was purchased second hand by the South West Timber Hewers  Co-Operative Society, though the year of purchase is unknown, it worked until 1967 in the south west of Western Australia.
