Diesel locomotives first appeared on shunting duties in the 1930s and the 300/350bhp English Electric engine in a solidly constructed outside framed 0-6-0 design locomotive quickly proved to be the most versatile for a general purpose shunting engine.
British Railways combined the experience of the four railway companies, producing this sturdy heavy shunting engine, later known as class 08, many of these locomotives are still serving Britains railways today.
