CSP17 Manning Wardle 0-6-0ST

The Cleobury & Mortimer Light Railway, a relative latecomer in the light railway world, took delivery of 2 locos in 1908 from Manning-Wardle & Co. Described as "specials" by Manning-Wardle they had works nos. 1734/5 and carried the names "Burwarton"  & "Cleobury" respectively. The design was truly characteristic of "Manning" practice. On being absorbed by the GWR the locos were allotted nos. 28 & 29. The kit only makes the un-modified locos. The "Swindonised" Panniers will be available in 2010. Names and numbers are included.


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.
