Jim built a railcar which he later sold to BSA.
From "A Catalogue of the Papers of the Birmingham Small Arms Company Limited"
MSS.19A/1/2/4 1908 Dec 2:
Scope and Content Management Committee's report to Board : alteration of working hours, trial of 50-hour week; state of orders in various departments; order for manufacture of 10 Drewry railcars.
I have a picture of the early railcar at: http://drewry.net/JimandAlf.htm [see picture below]. I believe he took this car to Africa.
Apparently another brother, Bill, worked on the railways in South Africa and disappeared out there.
Anyway, I guess, I am probably looking for a needle in a haystack but am writing to you just in case you might be able to help (and thought you could be interested in the photograph).
