Steam locomotive, No 573, 'Handyman', 0-4-0ST, 3' gauge, made by Hudswell Clarke, Leeds, 1900. Length 18'6", width 5'9", height 9'5".

Handyman is a 3ft gauge 0-4-0 saddle tank built in 1900 by Hudswell Clarke in Leeds for the Burton Ironstone Company in Northamptonshire. It spent its working life moving ironstone at various quarries in the area before ending up at Scaldwell Quarry which ceased operations in 1963.

Handyman was then bought by a group of enthusiasts who saved it from being scrapped, but the locomotive was never fully restored and was eventually acquired by the National Railway Museum in 2008. It is an example of the many thousands of small industrial steam locomotives that worked on privately owned railway systems at factories, mines and industrial sites all around the country.
