Andrew Barclay Ex British Railways Class 06 0-4-0DM Shunter
In 1958 BR introduced these 0-4-0 diesel shunting locomotives built by Andrew Barclay of Kilmarnock.
It was mechanically very similar to the Drewry diesel mechanical shunters and used the same prime mover a Gardner 8L3 delivering 204hp.
These short wheelbase shunters were used in Scotland but due to the closure of many of the smaller freight yards and depots several locomotives became surplus to BR’s requirements and many were scrapped.
One sold to Shipbreakers (Queenborough) Ltd. was subsequently exported to Italy.

BR Number series D2410-D2444.
In 1974 the BR TOPS numbering system was introduced and the remaining 10 locomotives renumbered 06001-06010.

One has been preserved.

The Industrial shunter sounds have been recorded from the prototype Gardner 8L3 engine .

Please choose carefully which decoder type.

The Shunter file has the gear change feature so you have to change gear to make the locomotive go faster.
