Andrew Barclay

Andrew Barclay Sons & Co. Ltd. commenced building locomotives at their Caledonia Works, Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1859. In the 104 years up to 1962 the company built 2,053 locomotives. In 1972 it merged with the Hunslet Group, which continued operating the Kilmarnock Works. One of the company's specialities was fireless locomotives, many of which were exported. However the main production was 0-4-0 and 0-6-0 saddle tanks. In 1917, 25 0-6-0WT were built for the War Office to 60 cm gauge. Also 25 Class 4 0-6-0 locomotives were built for the LMS in 1927. Between 1944 and 1946 15 Austerity 0-6-0s were built for the War Department. After WW2 the work declined and few steam locomotives were built after 1955. Nevertheless the production of diesel locomotives, which had begun in 1935, continued.
After going into financial administration in 2007 the company was acquired by Brush Traction of Loughborough via its parent FKI Group and was re-named Brush-Barclay. In February 2011, Wabtec announced that it had acquired Brush Traction, and the Kilmarnock works became Wabtec Rail Scotland.
