Pakistan Railways steam locomotive transfers

Made:
1911
maker:
Vulcan Foundry Ltd

Transfers for the Pakistan Railways steam locomotive, no. 3157, made at the Vulcan Foundry, Newton-le-Willows, c. 1911.

The locomotive was originally built for the North Western Railway of India in 1911 at the Vulcan Foundry works and given the works no. 3064. In most respects it is a typical example of a locomotive of about 1900. This was one of the first superheated engines built by Vulcan, which first supplied locomotives with Phoenix smokebox superheaters to the North West India Railway in 1911. Later locomotives were fitted with Robinson-type or Schmidt-type superheaters, which had piston valves instead of slide valves.
