Industrial Shunters
Bit of a request, which will hopefully get a few answers, fingers crossed.

I've been asked the following...

What do you know about the Vanguard / Sentinel at the DSM site in Dalry(?). I know it's an 0-6-0 diesel shunter and I think it's works number was 10267 but do you have any details, or a drawing of this you could send to me please mate.

Andrew or Pete B...any ideas ?  thumbleft

Bit of a move around for the shunters...

Seen today (Sat 19/4/14, 11.30am)
03066 - turntable
D4092 - by pedestrian door to DPS shed, between DPS shed and HNRC shed
01515 - just visible outside HNRC shed, not photable

The rest of the shunters are all in a line by the bank, from signal box end - 01520 (photable), 08785 (photable), 08527 (presumed, behind a wagon), 08685 (partially photable)

HTH someone.
MoD 01/5s
HNRC's 01529 reported this morning at Hornsey, working with 08892 on the new Thameslink depot. Wonder if one of the others from Croft has replaced it at Scunthorpe or whether the hire to Tata has ended?
Hi All,

Maybe of significance...

08847 was unloaded at Washwood Heath at 1120hrs.,this morning[Thursday]

All the best,Frank

See you in Teesside this weekend,Tel  Very Happy
Tyne Yard
On Sunday 13th April, whilst driving 1Y38 to Kings Cross, I glimpsed what looked to be one of the 08s with a cut-down cab, in one of the reception roads at Tyne Yard. I was unable to id it, due to coal wagons obscuring my view.
