Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This was the first experimental diesel shunter of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway the company which pioneered diesel shunting in the UK nominally rebuilt by the former Midland Railway's Derby Works from a 1377 Class 0-6-0T steam locomotive originally built in September 1892 by the Vulcan Foundry, whose number it inherited, though very little of the steam locomotive was actually re-used. Of itself, it was not very successful, but it did provide useful data for the further development of the diesel shunter design. It was withdrawn from service in September 1939 and converted to a mobile power unit, emerging in its new guise as MPU3 in November 1940. It was scrapped in the 1950s, though sources disagree exactly when.show more
