W・G・バグナルW. G. Bagnall)は、イギリススタッフォードにあった機関車メーカーである​​。

概要[編集]

ウィリアム・ゴードン・バグナル(William Gordon Bagnall)によって1875年に設立され、スタフォードにキャッスル工場を置いていたが、1962年イングリッシュ・エレクトリック買収され、消滅した。その製品の大半は、小型で産業用の2動軸または3動軸の蒸気機関車で、その多くが狭軌用であった。バグナルは、標準軌や狭軌の蒸気機関車およびディーゼル機関車の製造者として、よく知られていた。

バグナルは、蒸気機関車の弁装置に、バグナル&プライス式やバグレー式といった、いくつかの新機軸を導入した。それはまた、狭軌機関車で安価なものであったが、設計の特徴としてにマリン形(円形)の火室を採用していた。

カー・ステュアートの技師長であったドローツマンを採用した際には、カー・スチュアートの設計の一部がバグナルに持ち込まれた。そのような機関車の例は、シッティング&ケムズレー軽鉄道で見ることができる。

日本との関わり[編集]

日本の国有鉄道が導入したのは、新橋工場入換用に購入した1両(後の鉄道院1形)だけで、軌間1,067mm (3ft6in) のものもこれのみである。国有鉄道籍を得たものは、他に762mm (2ft6in) 軌間で旧佐世保鉄道引継ぎのケ97、ケ98があるに過ぎない。バグナルの機関車は小型のものが多く、合わせて7形式14両が青梅鉄道中遠鉄道陸軍鉄道連隊などによって輸入されているが、いずれも重量10t以下の軽便鉄道用や産業用のものばかりである。
