NB This not the same as Hope Town Foundry where the Kitching Brothers built early locomotives.
Upwards of a dozen tank engines were built by the Foundry, both 4 wheels and 6 wheels coupled
A writer to The Engineer claimed these engines were marked as made by "John Harris, Hopetown Foundry," between the years 1863 and 1869. The earlier engines had "Hopetown Foundry" on the name plate; some of the later ones had "Albert Hill Foundry" on the name plate.
