‘British Steam Fire Engines’ has been created to record the preserved steamers that exist, not only in the UK, but around the world.
Since Braithwaite & Ericsson first coupled a steam engine to a fire pump thousands of machines have been built in Britain, primarily by two companies; Merryweather & Sons and Shand Mason & Co.
Both exported their production to all parts of the globe, a number of which still exist and I am endeavouring to record them in words and pictures. If you have knowledge of any not featured in these pages please let me know, I would love to hear from you.
Numerous people aided me, on a previous website, with this project and I have would like to give them the credit they deserve. However many of the contacts I had from that site have been lost and I am trying to renew them. If you feel I have missed out an acknowledgement you believe is due please let me know so that it can be corrected, I am more happy to put it right and would like to get in touch with you once more.
