The 16in 0-6-0ST was the largest of a range of ‘standard’ loco-motives offered by the Hunslet Engine Company of Leeds. Cus-tomers could buy similar looking locomotives with 12, 14 and 15in diameter cylinders. They were de-signed for industry where owners were looking for a locomotive that was economical, simple to operate and easy to maintain. Customers could choose extra embellishments.
