1839 A railway locomotive was built for the Stockton and Darlington Railway by John Hague, with the name of London.

Another account dates this as 1843: Under Bramwell's supervision a locomotive was built for the Stockton and Darlington Railway. The engine was taken north as deck cargo by the paddle-boat Emerald Isle, at that time the only steamer trading between London and Middlesbrough. Bramwell drove the locomotive on the line before returning to London.[1]
