Robert Francis Fairlie was born in March 1831, of an engineering family.
I have a great deal more information on many aspects of the George England story and will add them to the archive section as I can on an ongoing basis. I eventually intend, for example, to collate and publish as much information as can be found on each of the locomotives built, though much of the information is contradictory. Mr England himself is a fascinating character, though as the railway historian C. Hamilton Ellis once put it; “Not a gentleman...”.
If you cannot find the information that you are looking for please get in touch on email@example.com and I will do my best to point you in the right direction. We are always very interested to receive any information to add to this growing archive so do please contribute by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
