Hawksworth County 

The Hawksworth County was the last in a long and successful line of GWR 2-cylinder 4-6-0 steam locomotives. Its development which can be traced back to 1902, resulted in a simple to maintain, powerful locomotive, capable of replacing the 4-cylinder Castle class. Frederick Hawksworth, late to his post, never had a chance to fully revolutionise the GWR as he desired and this, along with his 15xx tank locomotives, are the most recognisable of his four designs. Sadly, no County locomotives were preserved. This project aims to recreate 1014 County of Glamorgan using components from a Modified Hall and a Stanier 8F recovered from Woodham's Barry scrapyard.
