From Wikipedia - The English Electric Company Limited was a British industrial manufacturer formed after the armistice at the end of 1918. It was created to make one of Britain’s three principal electrical manufacturing concerns by amalgamating five businesses which, during the war, had been making munitions armaments and aeroplanes.
It initially specialised in industrial electric motors and transformers, railway locomotives and traction equipment, diesel motors and steam turbines. In the end its activities expanded to include consumer electronics, guided missiles, military aircraft and mainframe computers.
English Electric’s operations were merged with GEC’s in 1968.
As Ex. Canadian National 7470 simmers by the depot in North Conway, NH, the fireman of the train gets hoop orders from the station master. This photo session was during Conway Scenic’s “Railfans’ Weekend” on Saturday night. Despite the drizzle and the chill, the photographers were still lined up to get some photos wonderfully created by a couple of photographers and acted by some crew members. Thanks to the 2 photographers for this awesome shot! (via RailPictures.Net Photo: CSRR 7470 Conway Scenic Railroad Steam 0-6-0 at North Conway, New Hampshire by Vincent C.)
