Manning Wardle H Class 0-4-0ST (Open Cab)
The Leeds firm of Manning Wardle & Co undoubtfully built some of the prettiest industrial steam locomotives. With their long chimneys and high saddletanks the Manning Wardle style earnt them a top class reputation.
The H Class 0-4-0 locomotives were popular designs with many being built for use by Contractors and Industrial users. The firm specialised in providing engines to exactly meet a customers needs by modifying them as required at the time of building creating a “special” engine.
This model contains features found on early style engines like an open cab with primitive weatherboard to protect the driver and a hinged flap type smokebox door.
