CSP08 Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns/Yorkshire Engine 0-6-0ST

In 1937 Robert Stephenson & Hawthornes (RSH) built a number of locos for the Appleby/Frodingham Steel Co. The locos had a massive appearance and were designed for the rough and tumble of a steelworks environment.In the early 1950's further locos,to essentially the same design, were constructed by the Yorkshire Engine Co.(YE) The YE and the RSH versions differed in the cab and smokebox design. A model of either variant can be made from the kit. Many of the locos were sold off to the NCB when the steelworks dieselised. Three of the locos survive today.


In order to complete this kit you will require the following parts: -

Wheels and Axles – we supply Alan Gibson but can provide Markits, if they have them available. If you would prefer Markits wheels please ensure you let us know.

Crankpins - to suit the make of wheels.

Gearbox – High Level is our standard. Some kits do include a motor mounting etch which is suitable for Markits 38:1 gears (our stocks of gears are exhausted). Etch is available on request, while stocks last.

Motor – with the demise of Mashima motors we have sourced a suitable replacement CORELESS motor that has a special worm produced for the smaller diameter shaft, by Chris Gibbon of High Level. He has been suitably impressed by the motor performance.

The cost of our kit shows a saving compared to purchasing the parts individually.
