The Class 03 was one of British Rail's more successful 0-6-0 diesel-mechanical shunters. 230 examples were built by British Railways' Swindon and Doncaster Works from 1957 to 1962.

Class 03 Doncaster Works

BackgroundEdit

The Class 03 was built for light duties where a larger locomotive was not needed, especially for shunting at locomotive and carriage depots and as station pilots. As the nature of the railways changed, they often became unneeded and so a great many were withdrawn or sold to private owners. Two Class 03s on the Isle of Wight lasted until 1993, one of which - 03 179 - was re-instated into service by WAGN at their Hornsey depot, which is featured on the East Coast Main Line London-Peterborough route.
