The first two documents are from the Danish loco manufacturer Pedershaab. Nystrup Gravel had at least one loco from Pedershaab, a green loco numbered 14 with a home built wooden cab. From the correspondance it seems the loco arrived at Nystrup no later than 1955 when Pedershaab supplied the gravel company with info on how to keep the transmission chains tight and well greased. The second document is a page from earlier sales material found in the binder, indicating that no. 14 was perhaps originally delivered with a Danish built BurWain engine.
|Pedershaab letter to Nystrup Gravel. The writing in pencil is a note that part of the transmission was renewed in 1964.|
|Page from Pedershaab sales material. The Pedershaab locos were classified according the the mark of diesel engine fitted, FD for Ford or BWD for BurWain.|
|I can't help being amazed by the line under the header saying that Nagboel manufactures 'motor locomotives, steel plate wheels for farming equipment and wheelbarrow wheels'. Shows a lot of variety from the Nagboel work shop!|
