Hunslet Engine Company Anniversary

Many local people worked for the Hunslet Engine Company in Jack Lane, which finally closed its doors in 1995.

Image0053The Middleton Railway and Schneider Electric are pleased to announce a weekend of celebration over July 18 and 19 to commemorate the achievements of this company and its employees. The railway will host a gala event with several Hunslet locomotives returning to the city for the first time since they were built.

We are particularly interested in hearing from ex-employees of Hunslet who we’d like to invite to a special opening event. If any of the blog readers worked at, or know somebody who worked at, Hunslet Engine Company then please contact us at or at the Middleton Railway on 0845 680 1758.
