| Description

In 1906 the Polmadie based Mechanical Engineering firm of Alley and MacLellan established the Sentinel Steam Waggon business and by 1915 the company had grown to such an extent that a subsidiary company, The Sentinel Waggon Works (1920) Ltd, was built on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, the workforce being transferred from Glasgow. In April 1923, the Sentinel Waggon Works unveiled the ‘Super Sentinel’ steam waggon design, based on the earlier ‘Standard Sentinel’ steam waggon that had been in production from 1906, up to 1923. The range launched with Engine No. 5001 which was delivered to A. Brain and Co. of Cardiff. The ‘Super Sentinel’ was offered in two basic sizes that offered four/five ton and six/seven ton load capacities and was available in up to twenty four different body styles, including flat tray, tipper tray, enclosed vans, tanker waggons and even a six-wheeled articulated ‘semi-trailer’ version. Production of the ‘Super Sentinel’ continued until 1932, although an advanced ‘S-Type Sentinel’ design was introduced during 1927, production of which continued in a limited capacity up until 1952. Of almost 8,000 Sentinel Steam Waggons built, over 6,000 were built before 1929.
