Most of the locomotives at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry have a strong connection to the city so the arrival in 2011 of the last surviving Barclay Class 06 0-4-0DM shunter was a little surprising. 06003 was previously in the care of the Heritage Shunters Trust although I hadn't personally seen it since 1981 See image 22416. The loco was moved away again to Peak Rail, Derbyshire in early 2013.
