Mountsorrel Heritage Centre 2/5

Within the museum building at Nunckley Hill is this standard gauge 48DS (a 48HP Diesel Shunter). It began its working life at the Bardon Hill quarry where it did a sterling job for many years before moving to the Battlefield Railway at Shackerstone and then to the Snibston Museum, Coalville and finally to this museum.

Nice DOF! Very 3D. I like this.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.
A smart little workhorse, but 48hp doesn't seem much Brian.
Brian Walbey: I can't imagine it being used for heavy work to be honest.

These things were fine un-glamorous work-horses that went on reliably for decades
Brian Walbey: I do wonder if it is still a runner.
An example of total functionality Brian
Brian Walbey: They don't come much more simple Bill.

What a lovely looking engine Bria, it almost looks home made.
Brian Walbey: Bill summed it up, it looks functional.

A reliable workhorse. Very functional but not very glamorous. I like the wagon behind.
Brian Walbey: Built to do a job without lots of fancy design features.

It looks fit for purpose, Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Lisl, a basic engine with no fancy design features.

I like the colours of this workhorse.
Brian Walbey: So do I, whether or not it was originally that colour I do not know.

a simple and functional construction, Brian. i am no expert but it sounds like a frugal engine.
Brian Walbey: I would like to see it running.
A sturdy looking little tankie
Brian Walbey: Basic design for a basic job Tom.
