Peckett steam locos, noted for their fine rivet work on the cabs and tanks and the generous use of brass and copperwork, continued to be built at Atlas Works until June 12, 1958. Describing their core market as ?Colleries, Ironworks, Contractors Tinplate Works etc.? Peckett took pride in turning their locos out in a lined Works livery and utilised many standard components in their construction, however the nature of the locomotives? end use meant there were a number of alterations carried out, particularly as reduced height versions for operating in smelting works and collieries. Peckett were eventually bought out by Reed Crane & Hoist Company during 1961, having produced 140 W4 locomotives between April 1885 and February 1906. Peckett Works No.563/1893 'Dodo' was built for the Loughor Colliery Co. Ltd and is shown in the ex-works lined Peckett livery of Leaf Green, which would have been standard for the majority of Peckett?s customers? locomotives.
