These Hunslet (Jenbach) diesel shunter, built in 1994 by Hunslet in Leeds, to a Jenbach design (Type DH25) were fitted with a Kubota diesel engine and weigh 2.7 tonnes. They were originally used on the Jubilee line extension in 1996/7 as 2ft gauge locomotives and have since ended up on a few miniature railways in the UK, rebuilt in different guises. There is one at Eaton Hall (15inch), one at Fairbourne (12inch) one at Perrygrove (15inch) and a pair at Hampton and Kemsley (2ft). This kit represents the rebuilt 'Jubilee' from the wonderful Perrygrove railway, an idyllic spot worth visiting in the Forest of Dean.
