What an ungainly design this was - a wonderful mix of ladders, steps, angle iron and odd shapes.
J Wade says "I dont see it as an ungainly design, but there again I have owned the loco for the last 36 years! The fuel tank with the sloping sides, sits astride the engine bay. This was the very first British Railway shunter sold into industrial use. It's still a wonderful little loco, that has given countless enthusiasts a great deal of satisfaction and can be found at the base of the Heritage Shunters trust, at Peak Rail, Rowsley site, in the beautiful Peak district."
