BR/EE class 13 0-6-0 DE shunter No. 13003.
One of three pairs of Class 08s converted into ' master' and ' slave' shunters in the mid-1960s for the arduous task of shunting the hump at Tinsley marshalling yard. South Yorkshire. The locos were withdrawn from service with the closure of the hump in January 1985.
The model featured in the February 2004 issue of RAIL EXPRESS magazine, was converted from two Bachmann Class 08s and uses Ultrascale P4 wheels and Brassmasters couplings rods. The 'slave' is unpowered ( for the moment) while the ' master' is fitted with a Lenz LE1025 decoder. The model, along with the other two locomotives in the class, is intended to shunt the builders layout, 'The Hump', currently under-construction as part of the Scalefour Society 18.83 challenge.
