Redundant Shunting Locomotives

Post by Dylan Knott »

Anyone know where there are staged diesel shunting locomotives? e.g. Hunslet, Funkey, Hudson etc

Hi Dylan,

Don't the guys in Epping have one? I seem to remember it coming from AECI in Somerset West years ago. Sandstone does have one in Ficksburg as well. Otherwise they a pretty scarce as most are in use.

Cheers
