Rowsley [2nd]

Another Heritage Shunters Trust locomotive, pictured in the confined Rowsley shed in May 2017. This is Barclay Class 01 D2953, a 153hp DM 0-4-0 from 1956. It is reputedly the first BR Diesel locomotive to be sold into industry, going to Thames Matex in Essex in 1966. It has been preserved since 1985. Behind is another small 0-4-0, Class 02 D2854, which is only four years younger but arguably more stylish and also very practical with its big windows and veranda cab entrance.
