New Mamod Hunslet?

Post by BorisSpencer » Wed Oct 16, 2019 2:36 pm

Has anyone on here heard anything about this?
I saw a post on Facebook from the 12th September showing a preview picture of the new loco.
Supposedly based on the same chassis as the Stirling with an open cab.

I'll just pop this here!
It's lifted from a post on the "16mm Mamod & Oscillator Locos - owners, collectors and Mamodifications" facebook group.
Mods - please delete if you don't feel it's appropriate.
I know it's a Mamod, but I oh so want one.
Pricing rumoured to be £625 ish, which seems fair as the Stirling is £660.

Will it have a pressure gauge? I think the Stirling has one.

The photo was supposedly of an early prototype, so if the Stirling has a pressure gauge as standard, I don't see why this wouldn't.
I'm hoping to have a chat with John (John Sutton Books) at Beds in Steam, he's expecting to take delivery of an early batch when released.

Well, I rather liked the look of it on the stand at Warley...

I saw it at Steam in Beds yesterday, nice looking loco in its own right but not really a quarry Hunslet. I think they should market it as a simply a quarry loco. Apart from on here I can not find any mention or pictures of it anywhere.

I was also there, and agree with your comments regarding the name.
I could never scratch build a steamer, but I can make some minor cosmetic changes to one of these to achieve the impression I'm after.

I've seen a photo of the complete and painted locomotive on the 16mm Association Facebook group (not the group from which the photo above was taken).

I've noticed that Mamod can be a bit slow in getting new products on to their website.

It will be featured in Garden Rail 305 January 2020.

This is the photo Garden Rail posted on Facebook. I guess it is a Penrhyn Quarry version with that upside down coupling!

Whether or not it resembles an actual Hunslet, I think that's a very good-looking engine. I think Mamod has hit the nail on the head with this one. With some lining and a driver figure, it would look really excellent.
