Yes, originally Henry Hughes & Company after its founder, then Falcon Engineering (after the name of the works he founded), later becoming Brush.  Surviving steam locos from all three eras exist - in diverse locations as they had a thriving export business, but with a total combined output of some 350 locos (including around 100 steam tram locos)  they are nowhere common.  The Thailand (then Siam) loco is one of the last steam locos built by Brush engineering, SRT no. 61 being b/n 322 of 1911.

 

Talking of Thailand, another Brush loco, an 0-6-0ST of the Sri Maharacha Timber Company (SRJ no. 3, Brush 290/1903) was last seen at an old mattress factory in Chumpon, Si Racha, in 1993 (along with a Barclay 0-6-0ST), but had disappeared by 2010.

Nice photos, Mark.  Although there are now quite a few ex-British locos in Bulgaria, finding and predicting when they are out on line can be a bit hit and miss!  I expect that Pirdop is getting used to British enthusiasts dropping by - but good to see that the line-up of Class 87s there changes frequently.

The DVD Locomotives Von Krupp (Eisenbahn Kurier8300) shows a batch of 2-8-0s being built for Iraq in the 1950s.These had Stanier 8f fittings even down to the cab but they parallel boilers which gave them an Indian Appearance and American style bogie tenders as per the S160!
Not British built but with British Ancestry!

An actual electric locomotive from English Electric... in the Japan Railway Museum just north of Tokyo (kind of like the equivalent of the NRM in York).

However judging by the instruments in the cab, the actual electrical bits have long since been replaced by Japanese versions.

Further to Railsquid post ,I know there are a number of British built locos preserved in Japan.Somewhere on YouTube there's a museum (Kobe?)which has a Glasgow built saddle tank.
Sky 507 is NHK world and there's a roughly monthly programme called Japan Railway Journal It's on YouTube and issue 40 has a Tobu Railway 4-4-0 built by Better Peacock on it(11 minutes or so)
The programmes in English with an English presenter but I'm still wondering where they get all the female Japanese railway enthusiasts!
Next one is on on Thursday and Friday

The oldest operating steam loco in Canada was built by Dubs & Co. in Glasgow , Scotland in 1882 for the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Now it belongs to the Prairie Dog Central Railway near Winnipeg ,Manitoba.3DDD2656-1252-48D9-B7C7-E44812404448.png 4690DB4D-8EBB-4BBD-8609-91D59BC2B38F.png 36C8AF75-8511-43F6-A5E6-7B8E162E57FA.png

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, and I accept it isn't a "locomotive", but Liberia got five leading power cars of the 79xxx Swindon InterCity DMUsfor workers trains:

First time I have seen a photo of one actually in use, all the others showed the remains rotting away.

A good friend of mine was a driver out there and used to drive them, don't think they lasted to long as actual units think they were hauled sometimes.
I'm sure I remember him telling me one got smashed up

Now that front end is similar to the 120s which I have already done for 3D printing. Might make an interesting model, something different.

The photo of 79094 was taken by myself in Green Hill Quarry on 24-11-82.  The engineman is Pete Fisher an ex Toton man like me, the trainman at the first passenger door is Augustus Nelson.

 

We were on our way to an ore train derailment further south with food and drink for the crew clearing up the wreck, on arrival at the site we handed over to another crew and then walked past the derailed cars to the train locomotives and worked them light engine to Buchanan on the Atlantic Coast.

 

The three serviceable cars (91, 94 & 96) lasted a while longer but had become very unreliable, so much so that on occasions assistance was required to climb Kitoma Hill (a rise of 155mtrs over 15km.).  Assistance was usually in the form of an EMD SW900, it was just a case of locking couplers and then head for home 40 odd km's. away.

 

Russ p is quite correct about one car getting smashed up but I dont recall the no. at the moment. It was involved in a tragic accident resulting in the death of a member of staff and serious injuries to the enginman after the train had collided with a stalled logging truck on an ungated grade crossing in mid-'82.  The car was damaged beyond repair and was stored at Nimba for some time before been shoved into a nearby swamp.

 

Regards, Mick.
