English Electric – Centenary Year – Some Global Projects

Standard

The purpose of this set of images is just to illustrate the enormous amount of work English Electric Co completed through some of the electrification projects the company completed and worked on around the world.

2018 is the centenary of the founding of the company – formed in December 1918, it began trading formally in 1919, and became a truly global giant – not just in transport – but in many engineering fields.

1925/6 – Bombay Suburban lines of the GREAT INDIAN PENINSULA RAILWAY

EE No.51
