The Drewry Car Co.

Found at Locomotive Manufacturers

"The firm never built locomotives, and were basically agents. Although they had a works number series, all of their orders were sent to other builders.
They used such firms as Hibberd, Baugley of Burton-on-Trent, Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn, and Vulcan Foundry.
While Drewry supplied quite a number of diesel locomotives to NZR, they only had three that worked on bush tramways. This includes the two that worked for Whakatane Board Mills Ltd."          (Direct quote and picture from Locomotive Manufacturers)

Rail Bus - The Familiar Cyprus Railbus

Amberley Museum Southdown Bus Garage Project
(Picture) When the Museum is not very busy - or sometimes when it is(!) - out comes BP9822 which is a Shelvoke and Drewry Tramocar. A fleet of these small buses served the town of Worthing on the Sussex coast during the 1920s and 1930s.
The majority of surplus items which are made available to the DSA ...
A strange item amongst some MOD surplus sales: "The two types of locomotives are Hunslet (4) and Baguley-Drewry (5), two of which will be retained by the MoD for further use at other sites."
Human Revolution
"As in many revolutions, we had opened quietly some years back. I had seen the odd 350 h.p. English Electric locomotive doing its job quietly and efficiently here and there, but I had not seriously considered the elimination of main line steam. But in the very early hours of a summer morning, only a few weeks before I left Ipswich for the Southern in 1952, I stood outside the shed waiting the arrival of a new locomotive. I can see it as if it were yesterday, a WD 8-wheeler, Driver Arthur English of Ipswich of the red face and the sharply humorous tongue, and behind the tender, clean and tidy and with rods disconnected, a smart little Drewry diesel shunter."

3. SUGAR-CANE TRANSPORT
"From 1951, diesel-mechanical locomotives built by Baguley in the UK, some for the Drewry Car Company, entered service on Australian sugar mill railways."

African Railcar Preservation
There is a Birmingham RCW/Drewry unit of 1954 vintage standing at Limbe workshops in Malawi (formerly called Nyasaland). It is not usable immediately, but perhaps worth saving, although transport for this one could be a problem in view of the long distances, floods, etc. (Lots of pictures - Geoff would love to hear from you.)
