The Leeds Thunderbolt

  • Ken Rosewarne Leeds Grammar School


When the English Electric Company's School Project Competition was announced in 1967 I had a small group of enthusiastic Sixth Formers who were taking 0 and A Level Engineering Drawing. This seemed one way of bringing in something of a workshop background to the course and I decided a model steam locomotive would be suitable as this would encompass most aspects of a workshop course. None of the group had any elementary workshop knowledge and due to timetable problems all the work had to be in spare time.
