Tinsley Marshalling Yard

Detail of one of the 3 class 13 super - shunters formed by permanently coupling a pair of class 08s (one with the cab removed) in a master and slave combination to handle hump shunting in Tinsley Yard. (A larger rigid-framed locomotive could not be used due to a risk of grounding on the hump). This example consisted of D4189 (left) and D4190, jointly becoming D4501, later renumbered 13001. The locomotives became redundant on closure of Tinsley hump in 1985, with 13001 scrapped at BREL Swindon the same year. See image 38598
