  Prototype Info
 

On February 15, 1888, the first of a new class of 24-ton standard contractor’s industrial tank locomotives, Maker’s No. 299, rolled off the production line of the Railway Foundry, Leeds. This saddle tank featured 13” x 20” inside cylinders, and a simple, robust design and construction. Later known as the firm of Hudswell Clarke, this manufacturer eventually had produced eighty of this class of locomotive when the final engine, Maker’s No. 1750, was completed on July 19th 1946. The model we are producing represents the class as built in the late 1920s through to the mid 1930s.

Over a period of over 70 years, these little engines worked on Light Railways (famously including the Easingwold Railway, whose loco No.2 was of this class), railway construction duties, in collieries and government and private industrial facilities across Britain.

One engine, Maker’s No. 1530, of 1926 was bought by the Sydney County Council in Australia, and worked the Bunnerong Power Station sidings until its sale in 1947. It ended its days at the Wallarah Colliery at Catherine Hill Bay, south of Newcastle, NSW.

Three examples of the class have survived into preservation, though none is operational.
