Note: This is a sub-section of Robert Stephenson and Co

The Victory was engine No. 8 of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, built at Shildon in 1829 by Timothy Hackworth of Robert Stephenson and Co, on the same general lines as the Royal George, but instead of parallel motions the piston-rods were provided with crossheads which embraced rods or "slide-bars" of circular section. The vertical cylinders were 12in. by 22in and the boiler 12ft 6 in. long by 4ft 4 in diameter, contained a single return flue.[1]
