The use of dedicated shunting locomotives has diminished over the last 20 years, but 09019 survives on the West Somerset Railway renumbered D4017 and is operational.
The wagon attached is not as I originally thought a VGA variant due to a double bogie arrangement, can anyone put a name to it? I assume it is designed for European railways.
Very best wishes Andrew and Diane
