CSP09 Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0T Canal & Sweden Type

Hudswell-Clarke designed this class to the same specification as the "Jazzer" (see AM7) Construction began in 1902 and the MSC took delivery of 30, which were given the class name "Canal". The first locos had short tanks and a limited water capacity which resulted in some operational problems. Hudswell-Clarke modified the design by extending the tanks level with the smokebox front. The official class name for these locos was "Sweden" but they were nicknamed "Long Tankers". "Canal" locos were purchased by many other companies and were to be found at many Industrial locations, especially collieries. The kit can be used to construct a model of either a "Canal" or a "Sweden" class of loco.A range of names and numbers are included in the kit. Lost Wax Brass fittings to facilitate modelling this loco in its guise when used on the Mid Suffolk Light Railway are now available.


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.
