Katrinefors 1 in Skara locoshed, Sweden

Diesel shunter photographed on 28 July 2013. One of two built by Kalmar Verkstad AB for the narrow gauge Katrinefors paper mill, in 1959. In 1961 they were converted to standard gauge when the tracks in the mill were widened.
This locomotive worked as a shunter there until 1991, when it was donated to the Skara-Lundbrunn Railway on its 30th anniversary.
Its Swedish designation is Z4p, and is an 0-4-0 ("B" in Sweden), with an axle loading of 10 tons. It is powered by a Scania Vabis D 812 engine producing 160 hp and has a maximum speed of 31 km/h.
