Information & Sample Instruction Sheet
Drewry 153hp, 0-4-0 Diesel Shunter
  PROTOTYPE. The Drewry Car Co supplied bespoke Diesel Mechanical Shunting Locos to operators throughout Britain & across the world. They were configured to individual railways requirements. A manufacturers Catalogue displayed the range of locos & options available.
  These 153hp, 0-4-0’s, built in considerable numbers, were ideal for working the restricted sidings & tight curves of factories, gasworks & dock sides. A number of these locos remain in operation today on preserved railways & heritage sites.
