Engine Records

Engines Despatched

The following tables summarise, by engine type and number of cylinders, the totals of early Paxman compression-ignition engines despatched from the Colchester Works. The information is taken from an old Paxman data sheet which may have originated from the Service Department. Assuming it was originally compiled for or by the Service Department, it is likely to be one of the most reliable surviving sources.
