Front Cover : Sir WG Armstrong Whitworth & Company (Engineers) Limited began to build advanced diesel-electric locomotives in
the aftermath of the Great War as a means of keeping its factories busy. This is Works No D22, one of six 15 ton 0-4-0 diesel-electric
shunters built for stock in 1933 / 1934. It was bought in 1937 by the engineering company A Reyrolle & Company Limited, Hebburn.

It worked there until sale in 1970 to a local scrap merchant for use in his yard; by this time, the original Armstrong-Saurer engine had
been replaced by a Gardner 6LW. The shunter was retired in the late 1970s, and was bought for preservation by the Tanfield Railway
in 1978. It is seen here on 2 January 2021. (Rob Langham)
