CSP12 Manning Wardle 0-6-0ST Littleton No 4 & No 5

Manning Wardle built two locos to this design which were constructed for Littleton Collieries Ltd., just to the North of Cannock. They were massive locos and were amongst the first locos designed purely for Industrial use to employ 18ins diameter cylinders. One loco was namede "Littleton No 4" and the other "Littleton No 5" The latter was at work until the early 1970's when it was purchased for preservation. Names & numbers are included in the kit.


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.
