Manufacturers[edit]

There are also categories for manufacturers.

Please remember, many of the first locomotives in Germany had been produced by Engllish manufacturers, later German manufacturers like Borsig and Kraus-Maffei produced many locomotives and some series that never ran in Germany, and Cockerill in Belgium also produced series that never ran in Belgium.--Ulamm (talk) 14:02, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
