What was the Main Engine?
If a DOXFORD, who was the builder?

Added by Alfons Verheijden on 21 June 2011.
Can't answer for her but CITY OF LONDON had a Barclay Curle Sulzer and I'm sure the others would probably have Sulzers too.

Hello John
Thanks for your information, but it seems that there is one contradiction in my opinion.
The engine is build by Doxford Sunderland, but the hull was build by Robb Caledon not by Doxford?
Or is there a mis understanding

Added by Alfons Verheijden on 14 October 2011.

The engine was a 'J' type. Seven cylinder BBC turbocharger at each end. Constant pressure charged if my memory serves me?
