The design of this 0-6-0 battery-electric loco is based on the popular BR class 08 shunting engines found all over the UK, but is painted and numbered as one of the ex-SR class 12 shunters, the only full-size example in preservation is at the nearby Spa Valley Railway at Tunbridge Wells. Although the locomotive is designed for shunting purposes it has been proven to work in passenger service reliably for long periods of time as well as taking up "Thunderbird" recovery duties.

With just 2 large batteries, runs of up to 6 hours have been achieved.
