(a) One of four locomotives supplied by OK (works nos. 3356-9) in 1909 to the Patalia State Monorail system in the Punjab.
The line was c.50 miles in length and ran from Sirhind to Alampura and Patalia to Bavabigarh. The line was constructed,
run and managed by a firm called Marsland Price & Co. from 1909 to 1917. It was then taken over by the State of Patalia.
The line closed in October 1927. This locomotive was found in a Public Works Department scrap yard in Patalia in 1962.

(a) Supplied to the Military Reserve as part of a batch of twenty locomotives (1691-1700 & 1706-15) in 1902 & 3.
The Military Reserve kept railway equipment for 'emergency contingencies' - the British were still fighting the Afghan Wars
when these locomotives were delivered and the North Western Railway operated a number of lines on the North Western Frontier
on behalf of the Army (q.v. 119 in Mysore Railway Museum). Most of the Military Reserve locomotives were kept at Rawlipindi
but bases at Pune, Bangalore and Rurki had one locomotive each. Some of the batch of locomotives that this locomotive came
from were used on temporary lines laid in Delhi for the 1902 and 1911 Durbars. Fourteen of the twenty locomotives were sent
to the Middle East during World War One for use on military railways there. A maximum of four of these locomotives returned
in 1921. This locomotive was obtained from the Madras Engineering Group, Bangalore

(a) The true identity of this locomotive is a little confusing. It may not be the locomotive that its worksplate suggests.
D 1175 was part of a batch of twenty-two locomotives (1174-95) supplied as 0-4-2 's by D in 1878 to the RSR. This was an ISR
line. They were classified as E class locomotives , first numbered Nos. 102-23 and later renumbered as 230-51. In 1885-6,
Nos. 230 (D 1174), 231 (D 1175), 237 (D 1179), 237 (D 1181) and 250 (D 1194) were transferred to the JBR. They retained
their ISR numbers but they were now prefixed with an 0. In 1912, 0250 was converted to a saddle tank locomotive. In 1914-5,
three more ex-ISR E class locomotives from BBCIR were transferred to the JBR. They were ISR Nos. 174 & 175 (from a batch of
fifty locomotives built by N in 1876-7) and 203 (from a batch of twenty-one built by VF in 1877-8). By 1919 all these eight
E class locomotives had been renumbered 0200-07, the ST locomotive being 0207. When the JBR was divided in 1924, 0207 became
a Jodhpur Railway locomotive. The JR became the property of the Government of Rajasthan in 1949. It was integrated into
Indian Railways in 1950 becoming part of NR. The locomotive was withdrawn in 1952. I would therefore conclude that this
locomotive is in fact D 1194/78 fitted with the worksplate of D 1175. This locomotive was E class, No 0201.
(b) Supplied to MSMR. F class, No 118. The F class were extensively rebuilt after 1896 with 160 psi boilers, extended smoke
boxes and increased coal capacity. After this rebuilding they were classified FM class. Renumbered 37302 in 1957 when
fifty-two of the original one hundred and fifty six locomotives were still in service.
(c) Part of the F1 class of locomotives built at Ajmer. These locomotives were rebuilds of F class locomotives built by D,
YE, & N between 1875 and 1880. 734 was probably the first locomotive built at Ajmer Works. It did not survive the 1957
(d) Supplied to SIR for use on the Nilgiri Railway. X class, No 7. Renumbered 37385 in 1957. Part of a batch of twelve rack
locomotives (2456-9, 2469-70, 2733-6 & 3000-1) supplied by SLM between 1914 and 1925.
(e) Supplied to BBCIR. P class, No 29. Transferred to NER in 19XX and renumbered 861. In 1957 renumbering became 31652. The
BBCIR P class consisted of 78 locomotives, all built at Ajmer between 1908 and 1922.
(f) Built for BBCIR. M2 class, No 162 named DUCHESS OF YORK. Part of a batch of five M2 class locomotives built at Ajmer in
1923-4. M/M2 class consisted of forty locomotives, fourteen of which were still in stock in 1957.
(g) Supplied to BNWR. YB class, No 429. IRS design. Transferred to OTR in 1943, retaining its BNWR number. When OTR became
part of NER in 1952, the locomotive was renumbered 1006. In 1957, it was renumbered again, this time becoming 30084. Part
of a batch of eight locomotives(1610-7) supplied by NW in 1935. BNWR had twenty six YB class locomotives - twelve built by
NW, four by Skoda, eight by VF and two at Ajmer.
(h) Supplied to JSR. TJ class, No 11. Became part of the WR stock and renumbered 643J in 1957 (the J denoting that it was
an ex-JSR locomotive). Should have been numbered in the 39XXX series but the WR did not add the first two digits of the five
figure number to its locomotives. Part of a batch of two locomotives(2645-6) supplied by WB in 1942.
(i) Supplied to JdSR. HP class, No 152. BESA design. Transferred to NR and renumbered 31312 in 1957. Part of a batch of
