Crewe type locomotive was a design of steam locomotive designed by
Alexander Allan and William Buddicom during the 1840s. It was
widely copied elsewhere, particularly in France. During early 1840s
Alexander Allan and William Buddicom of the Grand Junction Railway
created the design incorporating inclined outside cylinders and a
double frame. It was built due to combat the frequent failure of
crank axles on contemporary inside cylinder locomotive designs. The
earliest examples were built by Buddicom at Chartreux for the
Chemins de Fer de l'Ouest in 1844 where the type became know known
as 'Le Buddicom'.
