Here are some photos of a shunter that I have built for my LBB, I recently did a slight redesign of the short nose section as I was not happy with the original approach I took when building her. The design is a Freelance build and captures a lot of elements typically found in these small locomotives, I was inspired by a number of designs including the OBB 1067 Class http://www.railfaneu...2067-096-mt.jpg , BOB Tm 2/2 http://www.railfaneu...ive/BOB1io2.jpg , and the RhB Gm 3/3 http://www.railfaneu...B-GM3-3-231.jpg, Tm 2/2 http://www.railfaneu...120/RhB_112.jpg classes. I wanted to make a compact little locomotive that could be used anywhere from station pilot duties to shunting freight yards, industrial and harbour lines, the locomotive is similar in size to a 4 wheel freight wagon.
Here is the backstory about the locomotive.
The LBB purchased a total of 5 Tm 3/3 Shunters between 1968 till 1974 and they are the smallest locomotives in the LBB fleet, they have a rating of 250hp and a top speed of 40km/h. These small but handy locos can be found at a variety of locations on the LBB network shunting trains in freight yards or industrial sidings.
Seen here with a G6 Ventilated Van for a size comparison.
