Hunslet is a famous name in the manufacture of locos but 68153 was built by Sentinel (Shrewsbury).
The wheel arrangement is listed as 4wVBT which is something to do with some unusual features namely - water tube boiler & vertical cylinders inside the cab. The crankshaft is enclosed and drive to the 4 wheels is via roller chains.
