Ruston & Hornsby 88DS Rowntree No. 3

0-4-0 diesel mechanical shunter photographed at the National Railway Museum branch museum, Locomotion, at Shildon, on 19 May 2011.
Built in 1960 by Ruston & Hornsby, presumably at Lincoln, where my late father probably inspected it in his capacity as a Mechanical Engineering Inspector at the Lincoln Works.
It was used by Rowntree & Co Ltd at York.
