Built at British Railway's Ashford railway works in Kent, England, this locomotive of Oliver Bulleid design, a diesel-mechanical 0-6-0 locomotive was introduced in 1950 to work the shunting / transfer yards and as a stand-by for main-line working. This locomotive prototype was equipped with a 500 horsepower Paxman engine but soon proved itself unsuitable for either duty. The design was written off as unsuccessful and 11001 was cut up for scrap in December, 1959.

For additional information regarding 11001's history, we highly recommend that you visit Rob Speare's Bulleid Locomotives website. With our many thanks to Rob for the pic of No. 11001 seen above :)
