Prototype Info

The 18" gauge railway at Crewe Works was introduced by John Ramsbottom in 1861 and was an internal tramway system serving the various workshops, most notably the steel works and the joinery shop. Crewe was the main locomotive works of the London and North Western Railway and later the London Midland and Scottish Railway.

In 1930 Hudswell Clarke built the first diesel locomotive for the LMS, works number D563. Powered by a 20hp three cylinder McLaren Benz diesel engine, and numbered 5519, it spent just a few years at Crewe before the tramway was abandoned in 1932 and hence was transferred to the Horwich Works, loosing it's name and renumbered ZM9.
