In 1880 Peckett & Son Ltd took over the locomotive building business originally established in 1864 by Fox Walker & Co., at the Atlas Engine Works, St George, Bristol. Like its predecessor, the company became well known for a range of small industrial type locomotives, many of them 0-4-0 and 0-6-0 wheel arrangements. The â€˜steam onlyâ€™ tradition was maintained until 1954, the last steam locomotive being No.2165 â€“ on outside cylindered 0-6-0 side tank engine â€“ which left the works on 12th June 1958.
