Not an answer but a question. In 1886 Dickson made two boilers for Nydqvist & Holm in Trollhättan Sweden. The boilers had korrugated steel fireboxes, Monitor injectors and Richardson saftey valves. The boilers were fitted to two locos, guage 1067 mm, for the norwegian Rørosbanen.
Are the works numbers for those two boilers known?
