Product Description

The 16in 0-6-0ST was the largest of a range of ‘standard’ loco-motives offered by the Hunslet Engine Company of Leeds.

Customers could buy similar looking locomotives with 12, 14 and 15in diameter cylinders. They were designed for industry where owners were looking for a locomotive that was economical, simple to operate and easy to maintain.

Customers could choose extra embellishments.

Prototype Factfile Built: 1923-1958 (44 built) How long did they last? Hunslet 16in 0-6-0STs were still in revenue-earning service well into the 1970s. **Where did they work? **Mines, collieries and quarries throughout Yorkshire and the Midlands although one worked in a power station in Wales. Five were built for export. Can I see one? There are at least nine left in Britain.
