Information & Sample Instruction Sheet
Drewry 204hp, 0-6-0 Diesel Shunter
British Railways Class 04
  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 204hp, 0-6-0’s, built in considerable numbers, were developed as a larger and more powerful complement to the original 153hp 0-4-0 that had proved highly successful.
  British Railways purchased from 1952, 15 locos of this initial design, D2200 - D2203 noted for working on the Wisbech & Upwell Tramway & D2204 - D2214 distributed throughout the British Railways system. A number of these locos remain in operation today on preserved railways & heritage sites.

If these are desired as an alternative to the wire wiper pickups that are included in the kit. I would recommend the type produced by Slater's and provision is made in the kit chassis for fitting these (Slater's Cat No 7157).
