Back to the Railway Museum in York now and this boy was the engine in front of No1 (which I posted a short while back)..
This to, is a first, and very rare indeed! This was the first Shunter to be powered by Diesel engine alone.. It was ordered as an experiment to see if it could actually work way back in the early 1930's.. It proved successful at its job, indeed in some cases it proved cheaper to run than steam engines..
By 1935 the experiment had been proved a success and more were ordered..
A rare engine indeed..
Hope you like,
(LMS means London, Midland and Scottish Railway..)
